Group therapy is a form of therapy in which up to 10 members meet together, for 1-2 hours, under the guidance of a trained therapist. This setting creates a dynamic support network for its members, where the group acts as a sounding board for concerns, provides accountability, and offers diverse solutions to problems. Group members often report reduced feelings of isolation and loneliness, decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety, and increased happiness. While every individual has their own unique circumstances, group therapy is an opportunity to feel heard and explore deeply personal issues in a safe and confidential space.
At TLA we are passionate about providing high quality groups to help you reach the life you want to live. Unlike most outpatient programs, we offer therapy services that can be adjusted depending on where you are in your recovery. Additionally, most of our groups are offered at convenient times for working professionals including nights and weekends. If you are interested in joining a group, contact us and we will explore together the nature of your concerns and recommend one or more of the following groups:

Support groups offer a unique opportunity to receive support, encouragement, and feedback from other individuals in a compassionate, safe, and confidential space.
