Group therapy can be fun and interactive while also promoting improved emotional well-being.
Participating in group therapy can give you the opportunity to gain greater self-awareness, explore and develop personal goals, understand others and improve interpersonal communication, and assess your values in an atmosphere of sharing and listening.
You are not alone. Being in a group allows you to discover that you are not the only one having similar thoughts and feelings, and that you likely share some common ground with others. A group can also offer more viewpoints and resources regarding your concerns.
In addition to the supportive benefits of group therapy, Dr. Garcia-Bravo offers a psychoeducational component to each group to help you learn new coping skills and useful tools to improve your sense of well-being.
Please Note: We will develop a group upon request once we get 6-8 people who are interested.
