Group Therapy

I have been running groups for over 30 years and am recognized as a Certified Group Psychotherapist by the American Group Psychotherapy Association.

My approach to group therapy is based on the interpersonal theory of Dr. Irvin Yalom. The group provides a unique opportunity to work on interpersonal skills and intimacy, experiment with new behaviour, experience challenges, and share successes in a safe environment. Group members transfer the skills they learn in the group to their outside relationships.

The group helps you:

  • learn about yourself and your impact on others
  • learn new interpersonal skills and receive feedback
  • observe and practice assertiveness
  • identify and express emotions

In addition to working on interpersonal skills and intimacy, the group can help people struggling with:

  • anxiety and depression
  • family and work issues
  • self-esteem and assertiveness

Groups are 90 minutes long and are held weekly. These are open-ended groups and new members are added when there are openings. The size of the groups are limited to 8 members.

Before joining a group, an initial screening interview is conducted to see if the group is right for you. There is no charge for this interview.
