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. 


During the Spring 2021 semester, all groups will be conducted via Zoom. To participate you can find the links for each group below or fill out an interest form
