Group therapy- is a form of therapy where individuals can experience a safe place to connect, relate, learn, and change in an interpersonal environment. Groups typically have anywhere from 5-12 members, depending on the nature and purpose of the group. Group therapy can be particularly helpful when mental health concerns interfere with relationships.
Groups we currently offer:
Postpartum Group (Wednesday’s 5:30-7:00 pm)- For women who experience mental health concerns after childbirth. While nearly 80% of women experience “baby blues” within first few weeks after childbirth, around 20% of women experience a clinical level of depression, anxiety, or OCD after the first few weeks/months of childbirth. This group provides a warm and safe space where mothers can receive validation and support from others, improve coping skills, and learn more effective ways to communicate with their support systems.
20’s Process Group- For 20 to 30 year-old adults dealing with various mental, emotional, and social issues. This group offers a warm and therapeutic environment where individuals can be heard, supported, validated, and challenged in helpful ways. This modality of treatment can be particularly helpful for those who are seeking to strengthen their identity, improve interpersonal assertiveness, set better boundaries, and/or become appropriately vulnerable with peers.
Adult General Process Group (Tuesdays 6:00-7:30 pm)- For adults (18-65 approximately) dealing with a variety of mental health concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and relational concerns. This group is a place to receive support, gain insight of self and others, experiment with new ways of being, confront social anxiety, deal with shame and increase compassion, learn assertiveness and boundary setting, practice emotional expression, etc. The group will have periodic openings throughout the year for possible new group membership. If you have questions about this group or would like to join please get in touch with Dr. Adam Scalese at 801-224-2313.
