The Maple Counseling Center’s Group Therapy Program offers ongoing groups that provide personal growth, support, healing, and increased knowledge of self and others. Therapy groups offer a safe space to discuss thoughts, feelings, and life events, and talk about issues that you may not be able to talk about elsewhere.
Some people choose to join a therapy group in addition to individual therapy, and others may wish to try group therapy as a stand-alone treatment.
If you are interested in joining a therapy group, please call The Maple Counseling Center’s group information line; 310 -277-9999, x5. One of our group therapists will call you back to schedule an intake session, and answer any questions you have about group therapy and which group may be best for you.
All groups are moderated by two experienced interns.
