GROUP THERAPY

with

Our Approach

There is nothing that is as powerful and yet as misunderstood in the world of psychology as group therapy. 

The term “group therapy” often conjures up images of flawed people sitting around, giving advice to one another. However, once you enter a group at TVI, you’ll see nothing could be further from the truth. Group allows you to process your life by engaging with others.

One of the best ways to truly get to know oneself is through our relationships with other people. In group psychotherapy, members have the opportunity to engage with other group members on important topics and, often, how they are relating to others in the group is indicative of how they are relating to people out in the world. Having a group experience may even provide information on how you are relating to yourself.

It is with this belief that Group Therapy at TVI adds tremendously to the growth and fulfillment of its members.

We welcome everyone to experience our psychotherapy groups.  They are designed to take the work we do with people to the next level.

Available Groups

Groups at TVI have a set time frame of 3 months, but often our groups decide to continue past that time. This timeframe allows for flexibility in group formation and is useful in setting expecations. Most groups choose to extend beyond that time frame for another 3 months, and beyond.  We currently have the following psychotherapy groups available:

Psychotherapy (or counseling) is a proven psychological treatment for anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other psychological problems. In psychotherapy, the patient and the therapist work together to:
  • Clearly identify the nature of the patient’s emotional difficulties
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the underlying “roots” of emotional difficulties
  • Promote change in unhealthy feelings, thoughts and behaviors
  • Enhance ongoing self-reflection to solidify changes
