Group Therapy


People need people – for initial and for continued survival, for socialization, for the pursuit of satisfaction. No one – not the dying, not the outcast, not the mighty – transcends the need for human contact.

- Irvin Yalom

 

Group works. In studies comparing group psychotherapy to individual therapy, group therapy has been shown to be as effective and sometimes even more effective than individual counseling.

  • Groups offer a supportive and compassionate space that serves as a sounding board and place to heal relationally
  • Group security, trust, and confidentiality are of utmost importance, creating a space that is safe for self-reflection and self-growth.
  • Groups promote self-growth
  • Groups foster creativity for problem solving
  • Groups provide effective accountability for growth and change
  • Groups provide perspective for your own struggles in a way that people who know you personally and closely cannot
  • The diversity of a group offers a unique benefit through the different backgrounds, personalities, and experiences of each member

Dr. Stone has been working with families, couples, and individuals as a marriage and family therapist for almost 20 years and uses groups to create a healing space towards growth and recovery for a variety of issues. Current group offerings are listed below. For all new group participants who are not also an individual client at Unstuck a 50-minute initial assessment session is required. All group members are expected to maintain confidentiality of what is shared in the group.

 

Unstuck offers several different types of groups throughout the year. Check here for current group therapy offerings.

We learn "coping" skills as children in order to survive painful situations. Sometimes those painful situations include having parents who were not emotionally available.   Unfortunately, those same skills you learned to survive as a child often become harmful to your wellbeing as an adult. You deserve to heal. You deserve to grow. You can choose to lean into spaces where you can develop a new way of relating to yourself, to others, and to your parents. Perhaps due to mental illness, physical illness, their own trauma, substance abuse, or other reasons your parent or parents could not..and cannot... be responsive to you emotionally. You are not too much. You are not too needy. Join us in a space where you will gain support, encouragement, and practical skills for how to change patterns in your life that are holding you back. This group lasts 10 weeks and is $50 per week.
