Women embracing in rehab group at therapy session

Group Therapy in Brooklyn, New York City

Group Therapy can be powerful and promote change, healing along multiple dimensions.

Among its many benefits, participating in group therapy can increase your feeling of connection and present an opportunity to engage with others actively. Group therapy also gives you a chance to learn from others and acquire new skills about specific topics. Group psychotherapy can be done in conjunction with individual therapy or as a stand-alone treatment. Details for all groups can be found below, or click on the group you are most interested in.


Taking Care of Caretakers

Brooklyn - now only $95 per session

Facilitated by Dr. Alexandra Schira (Brooklyn)

Being a parent and/or caregiver often prevents us from being fully present in our selves, both in body and mind. Come, Move, Talk Together is an experiential group led by two WTG practitioners and mothers, Elodie Erghott and Dr. Alex Schira, who bring together their respective healing disciplines of somatic movement and group therapy. It is designed to help caregivers reconnect and reclaim parts of themselves with the support of their fellow peers.

Join us for our introductory workshop where we will introduce concepts and simple
physical exercises that can be implemented into your day to reduce stress, invite
connection, and foster a greater sense of well-being.




Modern Dating Group

Gaining Mastery and Perspective

Brooklyn & Austin - now only $95 per session

App-based dating is a sociocultural phenomena that has created a revolutionary increase in access and potential in the dating space. At the same time, for some, it has exacerbated overchoice and reduced accountability, which can create much confusion and pain. 

Under the lead and support of our psychologists, group conversations on the topic have endless potential for deepening insight and providing healing, including:

  • Dismantling problematic narratives about self and others
  • Exposing group members to counterpoints to assumptions and projections
  • Cultivating an empowered proactive mindset to more effectively achieve dating goals.

This safe space will facilitate growth, renewal, and healing around the experience of navigating oneself in the world of dating today.



Interpersonal Process Group

Brooklyn - now only $95 per session

Facilitated by Dr. Seiji Iino (Brooklyn)

An interpersonal process group is an “experiential” form of group psychotherapy, typically composed of 4 to 12 group members and led by a therapist.

This group is designed for individuals of all ages and genders who want to develop more effective ways of relating to themselves and others, and to feel more authentic within themselves and their relationships.

In this group you may:

  • Examine interpersonal patterns through self-reflection and interactions with group members.
  • Learn and practice communication skills.
  • Safely experiment with new ways of relating to yourself and others.
  • Increase your ability to give and receive feedback.
  • Receive and provide support.

We often believe that our painful internal conflicts and social struggles set us apart from others, often making us feel alone.

Group therapy is a unique space that allows members to cultivate new, more adaptive ways of relating to ourselves and the world through recognition that we are not so different from others and that our internal and external experiences can indeed be shared and understood by others. 



Non-Monogamy & Kink Psychotherapy Group

Brooklyn - now only $95 per session

Facilitated by Dr. Jeffrey Goldman

Although not new, terms like consensual non-monogamy, kink, and BDSM have become interwoven into the fabric of intimate connections. Even with the best intentions, challenges can surface.

Agreed upon boundaries and preferences can instantly shift. Lines between soft and hard limits can become blurred. Negative emotions can start to outweigh positive ones. Jealousy might overtake compersion (a sense of happiness individuals feel when one or more of their partners are intimate with others). 

Group facilitators will be psychologists that can draw from a sex positive and alternative lifestyle background. Through techniques that focus on constructive thinking, effective communication, and identifying and managing emotions, you will acquire the skills and tools needed to modify deep-rooted habitual responses.

Empathetic warmth and understanding will provide a safe space to pursue these changes, As you learn to fortify foundations of trust in your relationships, you will position yourself to lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
