Group psychotherapy or group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together as a group. At the New Hope Mental Health Counseling, the group process is explicitly utilized as a mechanism of change by developing and exploring interpersonal relationships within the group.
Our current groups include anger management, parenting, anxiety, and grief/depression. A 2008 meta-analysis found that group therapy is very effective, especially in the long term. We believe groups can supplement the effectiveness of individual counseling. At the New Hope Mental Health Counseling, the effectiveness of groups is monitored with a pre-and-post questionnaire. Clinicians are experienced and able to guide a healthy exchange that leads to healing.
We have a strong professional network that is available to participate in the coordination of your care; from medication therapy to parenting classes, anger management, family conflicts, romantic relationship stress, and transitional coaching.
