ABOUT GROUP THERAPY
Group therapy can be a powerful way to heal; in fact, research has demonstrated that group therapy is as effective as individual therapy. Through groups, we realize we are not alone in our struggles, that other people– wonderful, talented and strong people– struggle just like us. Through observing others, we begin to see that our pain is not unique and we are more normal than we think. We learn to accept and provide support.
Receiving acceptance from others helps us accept ourselves and providing support to others can create a sense of purpose and worth as we demonstrate how we can powerfully affect the lives of others and help them heal. If you have a specific group you’d like to form, please contact us and let us know. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our Santa Monica therapy groups
OVERCOMING ANXIETY & DEPRESSION GROUP
In this group, we explore the underlying causes of anxiety and depression and begin to face our issues head on and practice another way of being. We will practice techniques to regulate anxiety as well as explore what we may be avoiding and channeling into anxiety and depression, which may cause problems in many areas of life. We will provide support, acceptance, and compassion to each of our members and explore triggers of anxiety and depression. Anxiety comes in many forms and all are welcome including those who struggle with eating disorders, hypochondria, social anxiety, panic attacks, substance abuse, addiction and anxiety related to relationships and dating. All are welcome.
