“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.”

Group Therapy

The two most important goals in the group therapy I offer are first to provide clients with an emotionally safe setting where they realize that they are not alone in life, and secondly to foster and support the hope that making positive change in their lives is a real possibility.

While the group often functions as a microcosm of society in which clients explore, and often re-enact, their struggles and conflicts in life, my work focuses on encouraging clients in their exploration and process of change.

After years of formal training and practice, and a decade of teaching group therapy to graduate students, I feel quite comfortable making use of the following therapies in a group setting:
