If you often say, “no one gets me,” “I don’t think anyone is ever going to understand what I’m going through,” or “I am the only person who struggles like this,” group therapy can take those perceptions away. Where else can you sit in a room of mindful peers without phones and work on a problem together? With so many people feeling isolated every day, being a part of a group creates the validation you seek. Group therapy enables you to understand why you’re not the only person dealing with a particular problem. This is an opportunity to discuss change with others as you go through the process together. If you don’t want to feel alone and would like to work on concerns involving food and mind, group therapy is for you. Our group supports you and keeps you on track without making you feel pressured or bogged down every week. The group dynamic is always welcoming and open.
Our group for women ages 18 and older sits at the cross-section of body and culture. This group is an exploration of pivotal moments that have created anxiety and depressive feelings in daily life. Looking at shifts and changes throughout the lifecycle, we’ll cover topics such as body image, protective behaviors, and physical objectification paradigms. We’ll also assist with self-cohesion while making sure nourishment is consistent. Interactive conversations help build better connections and a more grounded stance as you continue your recovery journey. Please contact us to join our women’s group or request more information.
We are in the process of gauging interest for our guys group. This group is for adolescent males who struggle in a world that emphasizes perfection. We will meet weekly to explore new attitudes surrounding being a guy in today’s society. We will explore social anxiety, perfectionism, masculinity scripts, and how to find words when there seems to be a struggle to connect. Participants will also learn skills associated with mindfulness, eating disorder stabilization, emotion regulation, over-control, stress tolerance, and effective communication.
Do you offer any other support groups?
We are considering the formation of a parent group and an adult male group. If you would like to learn more about either of these groups, leave us a confidential note through the “Contact Us” form. We will keep your name on a list and update you as the groups gain more traction.
