About: Group Counceling
Working Choices Master level therapists offer counseling in a group setting, providing group participants with an opportunity to learn new skills in an environment where they can practice and integrate new tools.
In addition, groups offer a place for participants to connect with other people struggling in similar ways, develop social network and support systems in an environment where they can model and see others model the skills they are learning. Groups are a fun and affordable way to create positive changes.
