Groups are an important therapeutic service and provide many benefits that individual counseling cannot, such as connection with others from similar experiences, the chance to share your experiences with other people and listen to the experiences of others, to share different perspectives about your life and the lives of others, and a way to achieve personal goals, as well as group goals.
Groups may be intimidating; however, our facilitators place a great deal of care into providing a safe, warm, and open group environment, and will not force participants to discuss anything they are not ready to share. If you would like to speak with a counselor to ask about the group experience, call our office!
Groups We Offer
Play Therapy Groups
These groups are split up by children's ages and are facilitated by a certified Child-Centered Play Therapist. These groups are beneficial for children learning social skills, who are shy or unsure how to interact with others, and who may just need some extra support. The groups allow for kids to guide their own therapeutic process and interact with kids their own age in fun and meaningful ways. Call our Oswego office to sign up!
