Sometimes we need a community that understands what is happening in our life. Being around others who are trying to navigate the difficult emotions and unique situations that we are in become the lifeline that keeps us going. If this sounds like something that might help, please reach out and find that group that allows you to be yourself and support you during this challenging time.
There are two main types of groups that might be taught at our practice at this time:
- A Process Group is usually ongoing with people dropping in and out. This is for people who are trying to process their emotions and build a community. They will stay for as long as they find this group helpful.
- A Skills Group is helpful for those people who want to learn some new skills for managing a situation. This group is typically closed, runs for a specific period of time and a person signs up for the whole series as each skill builds on the last.
The Bay Area has some great groups and if we are not running a group that works for you, please reach out to tell us of your interest. If you are a current client, please ask your therapist and she or he would be happy to refer you to a group in the area.
