What is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with a small group of Austinites who have similar mental health concerns.

Group therapy is a good way to treat a wide range of mental health problems, such as:



What are the benefits of  group therapy with a licensed Austin therapist?

Group therapy is especially transformative because unconscious relationship patterns play out in real time. Over time, group members begin to relate to each other similarly to how they experience intimate relationships outside the group.

Group therapy benefits people in varying ways, but you can almost always count on improving in the following areas:

  • Better Self-Awareness and Self-Acceptance

  • Enhanced Communication and Interpersonal Skills

  • Increased Support and Social Connections

  • Greater Coping Skills and Resilience

  • Enhanced Self-Esteem and Confidence




What can Group Therapy help with?

According to the APA, group therapy is just as effective as individual therapy. In some cases, it's actually more effective than individual therapy. Group therapy is beneficial for any issue where patients need a "sounding board," or a group of people off of whom to bounce ideas. Members of the group benefit from the collective life experiences of the group. Group counseling can help with traumas and many other problems that a lot of people face, like:

Depression & Anxiety

Group therapy can give people with depression a safe place to talk about their feelings and get validation and support from other people. People with anxiety disorders can learn how to deal with and control their symptoms in a group setting through group therapy.

Eating Disorders

Group therapy can give people with eating disorders a safe and supportive place to talk about their problems and learn healthy ways to deal with them.

Substance Abuse Disorder

Group therapy can hold people in recovery from substance abuse disorders accountable and give them support. It can also help them learn healthy ways to deal with stress and avoid relapse.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

People with PTSD can talk about their experiences and get support and validation from others who have also been through trauma in a safe and supportive setting in group therapy.
