Please contact us before attending any groups to discuss if the group would be a good fit. Some groups require an individual meeting with a staff person before attending. All groups are facilitated by licensed professionals. A more detailed description of each group is listed below. Group participants are required to pay fee when enrolling. For each session attended, clients can request that we file an insurance claim, and reimbursement from your insurance company will be sent directly to you.
