Group Counseling

Counseling groups are a great way for children and teens to connect and relate over common struggles and issues. They are also a great way to make friends! Group counseling prices are signficantly less than individual counseling sessions ($30/session compared to $125/session), and are therapeutically beneficial in many ways. Many of our counseling groups have been running for over 6 years and have become a community favorite, with many clients asking to come back each year. While the general goals & focus of the groups remain consistent, the group facilitators change from semester to semester, offering a unique experience for our group members each year. To register your child for one of our groups, give us a call today! 713-466-1360
