Group therapy helps individuals develop communication skills and socialization skills, and allows clients to learn how to express their feelings in a safe environment. Group therapy allows individuals to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar struggles and learn effective coping strategies from one another. There is never a pressure to talk and some members benefit highly from listening to others. Consistent attendance is strongly encouraged in order to build community and trust among group members. Below are the current groups offered. Please contact me in order to set up a consult to determine if the group is appropriate for your needs.
Teen group sessions focus on building relationships, improving social skills and communication, and identifying ways to cope with stress. Members are encouraged to attend each week in order to build connection and trust. An intake session with the parents is required in order to ensure your teen fits the group dynamic. Teen group sessions will begin in late fall and take place in the Hayward/Castro Valley area at an outdoor location. Session cost is $40 per person, per group session. Please contact me for more information.
