Group Therapy

Group therapy can be a rewarding modality of treatment for those suffering from mental health issues where isolation and thoughts of "being the only one who feels this way" are a part of the symptom picture. As therapists, we have the honor of knowing that we are all struggling in one way or another, but the everyday person in our society is taught to hide problems and concerns. This can leave the impression that everyone else is "doing fine," especially with exposure to social media, where only the happiest moments are highlighted. Well, we know the truth, and we want you to know it too!

Group therapy is a place where you can explore your concerns and gain skills for coping, with a group of other like-minded individuals who share problems and symptoms similar to yours. Group therapy can be especially effective for problems with anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD and substance abuse. Our current group offerings are as follows:

Support group for Veterans: The objective of this group is to assist & support each other with everyday struggles veterans go through like fears, hyper-vigilance, triggers, and other PTSD factors. This group is for adults (21+), men and women, who have served at least one tour and retired with honorable discharge. It would be preferred that each of them come in with a disability rating as well.

 

Benefits of group therapy for Veterans: 
1. Reduce isolation. About 43% of veterans isolate at some point after being discharged from the military. This group will allow veterans to come out of isolation and work with each other.

2. Safe Space to Express Emotions. Expressing emotions is a key element to
healing. This group will allow a safe space for veterans to express any emotions they are feeling to others who feel similarly or can empathize with their feelings.
3. Strong Support Network. This group will allow fellow veterans to support one another and share similar experiences with those who will understand.

This group is hosted by our intern, MK Boone, under the supervision of Dr. Tara Ferguson and Katie Alford, MA.
