Group Counseling

Group Counseling

Group counseling is helpful to many students given that they are provided the opportunity to interact with others who have similar life experiences. Validation and feedback can be immediate allowing for quick growth in a safe and supportive environment.  Group counseling also gives you the opportunity to practice new behaviors, gain  feedback from peers, and learn from their experiences. Most importantly, you will recognize that you are not alone.  

Each group is led by a senior staff counselor.  For more information about a group or to check whether a group has openings for the semester please contact the staff associated with the particular group via e-mail.  For general information regarding groups please call 501-450-3138.
