This is a general therapy group where all issues and concerns are welcome. Group therapy brings together several people with similar conditions under the guidance of a trained mental health provider. Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them. You may feel like you are the only one struggling, but you're not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they're going through and realize you're not alone. Issues discussed may include - but are not limited to - anxiety, depression, relationships, transitions, fears, abuse, addiction, body image, loss, anger, or interpersonal conflicts. Come join us and gain group support.
Anxiety & Stress Reduction
This group focuses on reducing the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety and stress. You will be introduced to new ways of thinking and acting in an effort to better manage symptoms and improve quality of life. Drawing from Adaptive Behavioral Therapy, I will introduce you to an evidence-based technique which includes hands-on activities and worksheets to further help you understand the underlying causes of your anxiety, your historic adaptations, and current stressors which will allow you to create new, more adaptive ways of managing stress.
Food and Mood
What and how we eat directly impacts how we feel. Whether you're eating too much or too little, dealing with an eating disorder, having obsessions/compulsions around eating, or have a distorted relationship with food, this group will allow you to share your concerns in the company of others dealing with similar issues. By making small changes in your relationship with food, you will begin to notice changes in mental functioning and mood. Changes in diet and activity level can alter mood and likewise, our moods can alter our eating habits. Often when we're feeling down, we tend to overeat or restrict ourselves from having certain foods. In this group you'll explore your own relationship to food and eating and join others as they strive towards mindful eating. A healthy body can lead to a healthy mind.
