Are you stuck?
Group therapy offers a setting where you can work on the blind spots in your life—areas where you feel stuck, but aren't sure why—in a setting that is less expensive than individual therapy, though often more powerful.
Typically, our blind spots have to do with those things that matter to us most: our deepest passions, biggest goals, or greatest wishes. We want to pursue these, but end up hiding from them, for fear we may never actually achieve or have them.
Left to our own devices, we often pursue what we “should” be doing, rather than what we want to do.
Self-growth can't be done in a vacuum. Yes, we can read books and try new techniques, skills, philosophies, and approaches. But if this is all we do, we are unlikely to overcome our blind spots, because only others can see these and help us see them.
Group therapy taps into our need for connection, to be heard, to be known, and gives us a sandbox to explore how to feel more connection, appreciation, and power in our lives.
Group therapy is not about "fixing" yourself. It's about growing and expanding yourself, to move toward greater rewards in life. Relationships deepen. Work feels more productive. Life experiences are more meaningful and fulfilling.
I offer Empowered Living Groups as a way for adults to participate in group therapy in a safe and supportive environment. In these groups, both men and women explore their interpersonal and intrapersonal growth. These groups especially benefit people looking to practice new coping mechanisms, strengthen their relationships, and overcome inner obstacles to fulfillment. These are high-functioning groups, with an age range of mid 20's to early 70's. All members are in concurrent individual therapy or have had a successful therapy experiences.
Each group is co-led by two therapists, myself and either Jen McLish, LCSW or Courtney Morrison, LCSW. Having co-therapists provides even stronger support for participants to explore and build upon the richness of their interpersonal experiences in group.

Group therapy is based on the theory that our most profound difficulties are best explored, understood, and unlocked by understanding and altering our patterns of relating with others. Each group empowers members to improve the relationships in their lives, whether those be with spouses, partners, friends, family, employees, bosses, or others.
What Empowered Living Groups provide (and what group situations in our normal life often lack) is an environment in which we can openly and honestly talk about the patterns we engage in. Once we are aware of these patterns, we can marshal the strength to alter them, as opposed to being swept up in them. The result is a life that feels more connected and empowered.
