Counseling groups give you the opportunity to share experiences, learn new perspectives, and experiment with new behaviors in a safe and supportive environment. The group setting helps you discover that others truly understand your feelings and challenges.
Counseling groups are led by one or more professional mental health counseling providers, who demonstrate techniques such as active listening and how to give and receive constructive feedback, so everyone gets the most out of the experience. They typically are comprised of 4 or more group members.
Rates for groups will be a nominal fee per session to make services accessible within the community. Also, most insurance companies offer group therapy as a benefit; we can bill on your behalf.
How Do I Join a Group?

Groups typically meet one to two hours weekly, and may run from 6 to 8 weeks or are ongoing. Groups will be developed based upon community needs and will address issues concerning relationships, depression, anxiety, career goals, parenting, grief, divorce, and weight loss, among many other topics. We are looking to start groups offered on evenings at the Columbia, SC and Shelby, NC offices.
