Group therapy can be highly effective, and can provide many benefits that individual therapy cannot. Depending on the nature of your concern, group therapy may be the ideal choice for receiving support, increasing understanding about the problem that is impacting you, and working toward change.
Counseling Services offers a variety of groups. Some are more unstructured and allow members to explore their struggles and identities with each other and heal and grow together. Others are more structured and focused on developing new skills such as to improve coping or communication. These groups can include semi-structured discussions, exercises, and activities.
Depending on the particular group, it may be led by 1 or 2 therapists and may include 4 to 10 members. Although groups differ, many meet weekly for 1 to 2 hours and run for the duration of the semester.
Scheduling group therapy
If you are currently meeting with a counselor at Counseling Services, you may speak with them about your interest in group therapy. If you are not a current client with Counseling Services, we ask that you schedule an Initial Consultation on the day you'd like to come in by calling our office at (775) 784-4648 or booking online. At your Initial Consultation, a counselor will talk with you about the concerns you'd like to address and whether any of our current groups might be a good fit for your needs.
