Group Psychotherapy

In addition to individual consultation and counseling services, Life Changes Group offers an assortment of psychotherapy groups facilitated by our expert staff. Unlike the two-person relationship between patient and therapist in individual therapy, group therapy offers multiple relationships to assist the individual in growth and problem solving. Group psychotherapy encompasses many different kinds of groups with varying theoretical orientations that exist for varying purposes. All therapy groups help individuals grow emotionally and solve personal problems. All utilize the power of the group as well as the therapists who lead the group in this process.
