Groups are an effective treatment modality to help normalize and validate the struggles people go through while in the process of learning, healing, and recovery. Simply put, there are insights, affirmations, and positive experiences gained from the group process which are not available in individual therapy.
We are excited to present seven powerful, therapeutic groups based upon assessed need in our community. Most of these groups are time-limited, skills based modalities lasered to accelerate emotional growth and recovery in specific areas.
Designed to serve as ancillary support and instruction, they do not replace individual therapy. As such, they work in conjunction with therapy providing an additional intervention to help you move forward in treatment. All groups are conducted by experienced, licensed clinicians in a confidential setting. These groups are:
Relational Living for women wanting to learn principles from RLT (Relational Life Therapy) with emphasis on equipping them to speak up and mean it. Participants work on applying skills to their life circumstances and in identifying and changing their relational deficiencies into healthy adult interactions. This is a women’s only 18 session program limited to seven participants led by Wess Ferguson, LMFT, Certified Advanced Relational Life Therapist.
Relational Living Workshop is a fun, experiential one day seminar for individuals and couples wanting to learn the latest in relational empowerment. Participants are taught to maturely manage their own emotions and to go after what they want using the five winning strategies developed by best selling author and the founder of the Relational Life Institute, Terrance Real.
