Group counseling offers a unique environment for people with shared realities to talk about their experiences and learn methods for understanding and managing whatever trouble spot they are going through in life. Our group counseling sessions focus on open discussion in a respectful and inviting setting. We offer group counseling for anger management, domestic violence, and addiction/recovery as well as others on an as-needed basis. Co-parenting groups are available upon request.
Anger Management Group Counseling
Learn to Control and Direct Anger
Anger is a natural human emotion—but sometimes it can get out of control. In our anger management groups, we focus on learning about the types of anger and how to identify and manage our anger. Anger management focuses on dealing with stress, learning and using empathy, and assertive communication. Our anger management group counseling is designed to help you better understand how anger can affect your life and how to make changes.
Domestic Violence Group Counseling
Community Support for Survivors
Domestic violence and sexual assault can be an isolating experience that builds invisible walls around a survivor and batterer. In our domestic violence counseling groups for batterers, we focus on working with those who are seeking help on their own or when appointed by a court to identify and replace the cycle of domestic battery.
In our domestic violence counseling group for survivors, we focus on building a supportive community for survivors to learn about the dynamics and effects of domestic violence, sort through feelings of helplessness and confusion, and learn strategies for safety planning and support. These groups are available when requested, however, many survivors seek individual counseling. We have therapists who have specific training in these areas.
Stress Management Group
Focus on Improving the Quality of Life
Self-care is the practice of enhancing your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing to improve the quality of life and maximize your potential. Our self-care group counseling sessions focus on increasing mental and emotional resources for dealing with the stresses of every day. Today’s world is full of stress because we always feel pressed for time. It can lead us to make decisions that sacrifice our self-care and create a negative outlook. Stress and lack of self-care can create spirals of negative thoughts and feelings that harm our physical and mental wellbeing. In our self-care sessions, we focus on learning strategies to reduce stress and direct our self-care towards productive and positive lives.
Addiction and Recovery Group Counseling
Addiction and recovery counseling groups are available for those who have experienced or are experiencing addiction. Our addiction and recovery counseling groups allow group members with similar experiences to learn recovery strategies together, share information, and support each other to overcome self-destructive behaviors. For people starting the recovery process, group counseling can be particularly helpful because of sharing and support found in recovery counseling groups. Our addiction and recovery groups are in a professional and private setting where open communication and support are emphasized.
