Group counseling provides an opportunity to try out new ways of interacting with others and active participation is encouraged. The group environment is based on trust, honesty, and acceptance. Identifying and sharing feelings is crucial to personal growth. There is risk involved, but the benefits outweigh the risk. Some benefits of group counseling include building authentic relationships; being honest; checking out behaviors, thoughts and feelings; and receiving support, encouragement and strategies for change.
 
Each member will have an opportunity to share during each group session. Group members are asked to commit to 1-3 months of group counseling since change usually requires 12-18 sessions. It takes time to process emotions, become comfortable sharing, and learn and practice new strategies. Groups are composed of 4-8 people, and will last 60 minutes . The fee is $40 per week.
