At Recover Restore Counseling, we believe that groups are an effective and safe place to heal in the context of community and support. An increasing amount of research has shown that group therapy works and can be an incredible resource for those involved.
Effective groups help reduce feelings of shame and serve as helpful reminders that we are not misunderstood or alone in our struggles. It is only in our isolation that our fears and need for approval grow stronger. By being in groups and becoming more fully known, these fears and dependencies can subside significantly. Additionally, as we hear stories similar to ours we realize we are really not alone - our experiences are in fact normalized.
