Why Group Therapy
In my years of experience asa psychologist and group leader, I found that patients often join groups reluctantly, but they fall in love with it right away.
Group therapy is one of the only places that one can talk about anything at all, solve private and difficult problemswithout riskingconfidentiality and gossip. What you talk in group stays in group. Individuals experience being part of something, learn and role play difficult situations from home and work, and improve their ability to interact with otherseffectively. Group therapy is one of the best antidotes to social isolation and the need to always watch what you say.
We Tried this in Dallas, Texas
GroupYoga & Psychotherapy
It was a great experience that I would like to continue in DC. The experience revealed to me that patient with complex trauma do much better when talk therapy is combined with Healing Yoga or Parayoga. Check for upcoming information for PsychoYoga Groups.
