Therapeutic Groups

Therapeutic Groups

Each group is tailored to address a specific concern (such as depression, grief, etc.) that is similarly shared between group members to provide a supportive environment. A therapist is there to facilitate group discussions, help with emotional processing, and promote connection.

Group rules and boundaries are created during the first session to establish safety, security and privacy for everyone in the group. Groups may include talk therapy, games or exercises depending on the group topics, therapist and participants comfort.

Featured Therapy Modalities

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

ART is trauma based psychotherapy that fosters rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories and imagery. This approach provides effective relief from the strong physical and emotional reactions associated with post-traumatic stress (PTSD), trauma, anxiety, cravings, depression and performance, in as few as 3 – 5 sessions. Individuals respond with relief and do not have to talk about the experiences over again unlike other therapies. After a few sessions individuals will keep their memories but lose the emotional pain and response.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an evidence-based, psychotherapy that works to process traumatic events, adverse experiences and resolve the emotional distress from those events and experiences. Sessions consist of exploring past events in order to target the root cause of current symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, and depression and other mental health issues. This approach provides effective relief within a shorter amount of time with less emotional disturbance compared to traditional trauma modalities.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT works to recognize and change the often distorted, automatic thought process that is affecting emotional and behavioral functioning. This is done through exploring how one’s beliefs about the world, and personal experiences, contribute to distorted thoughts, and works to develop the ability to replace the automatic thought with a more realistic perceptive, minimizing the individual’s distress. 

Marriage & Family Therapy Modality (MFT)

Marriage and Family Therapy uniquely takes into consideration the family and environmental system as a whole, meaning the therapist explores how environmental factors, such as interactions and relationships, contribute to current functioning and then applies assessed information when treating individuals, couples, and families.Marriage and Family Therapy theory techniques strategically find the dysfunctional generational patterns in individuals, families and couples in order to create an opportunity for sustained change instead of short-term emotional relief. Marriage and Family Therapists have specialized education and training in working with couples and families that other behavioral health professionals are not required to have, such as a minimum of 1,500 supervised hours of working with couples or families. 

Faith and Spirituality Integration

This could including praying, mention or discussion of spiritual or religious writings, traditions, songs, videos or stories based on the therapist’s and client’s level of comfort.
