Through the process, clients gain a broader perspective on their issues and benefit from increased self-awareness. Counseling groups are an effective way to gain support, feel better, and support changes you wish to make in your life. Participation in these groups requires an initial evaluation.
- Young Adults Group. - The young adults group is a weekly semi-structured counseling group for adults in their late teens and early 20s who are currently in college, working, or other life transitions.
