Group Counseling

Groups are available to have the support of others who share similar concerns and to gain information needed for effective self-care. A wide variety of groups are available each semester, focusing on topics such as relationships, stress, anxiety, and women's issues.

All of our groups and classes provide a safe and confidential place to learn skills or explore issues and are run by professional staff.
