GROUP THERAPY

What is group therapy?
Group therapy at BTW is run by one of our trained therapists in a safe, caring, and confidential group setting. In session, the therapist will help the group members explore and work through feelings, thoughts, worries or behaviors the group members want to change within themselves. Using a group format is essential because it provides a forum for group members to learn additional ways to overcome life’s challenges and build their relationship skills with others. Together, both the therapist and group members set the goals of therapy and work to achieve those goals.

How can group therapy help me?
Most people begin group therapy for a variety of reasons (for example, relationship concerns, coping with grief or trauma, personal growth, depression, substance use, etc.). Your therapist will support you on your path to wellness by helping you overcome any challenges you are facing so you can have the life you want and be the best you that you can be.
