In group therapy at Willowbridge, everyone is welcome. Regardless of your background, your experience is a shared one and your perspective has value.

Group therapy is effective because group members act as a support network and sounding board, hold each other accountable and can share in your struggles. Often, it is difficult for us to share with others that we don’t know well. It is important to know that you are not the only one struggling and it can be a relief to hear others speak about the things you’re going through. By hearing how other people tackle problems, you can learn a range of approaches for facing your own concerns. Therapists are experts and can offer strategies to confront specific problems.
