Group Therapy

Group therapy can be a great way to meet people who are going through similar experiences in life. It's helpful when we feel like someone 'gets it' in a way others may not be able to.  A therapy group is an opportunity to meet people who may be able to validate our experiences, but also hear some ways others might be handling situations that we might be needing some help with.  Below is a list of the current groups and a description:

"I'm going to college?!?!" 
Pre-college anxiety group

For years in younger grades, all anyone ever does is talk about going to college.  We follow a set schedule year by year and count down till the day we graduate.  We get those exciting acceptance letters or those heartbreaking rejection letters.  Then we make the decision.  Then we think, ok, now what?! Then the anxiety sets in. Am I ready? Will I like it? How will it be dealing with roommates? Am I ready emotionally and/or academically? Will I be able to get academic and emotional support at college? What if I don't like it? What if I do?  College age can be a very exciting time but it can also be very anxiety inducing.  Join this group in the Spring and Summer before you head off to college.  

Join clinician Mara Yacobi, LSW and intern, Lisa Pisano for a six-week group therapy experience open to 8 participants. The group will meet Monday evenings (exact time TBD) in-person beginning late June thru early August  at The Healing Connections Counseling Center office in Ramsey, NJ.
