The Power of Group Therapy

“I said to my body, softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’” –Nayyirah Waheed

Women’s Recovery Group

Group therapy allows for people to heal in the context of empathy and compassion. With each group we hope to foster a safe container that provides ongoing community and accountability. Our Women’s Eating Disorder Recovery process groups offer support to those in recovery in order to process struggles with regard to working toward/maintaining abstinence from behaviors and working toward self-acceptance.

 

Teen Recovery Group

The power of group therapy is magnified in the teenage population. With the importance and priority of peer opinions emerging during the adolescent years, it is an excellent time to be surrounded with a like-minded and positive recovery community. Our Teenage Women’s Eating Disorder Recovery process groups allow for recovery-focused peer feedback and family involvement to help support long term recovery goals and accountability.
