At the Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy, we recognize that one of the more painful aspects of any emotional struggle is the sense that you are struggling alone. Therapy and support groups help restore a sense of hope by connecting individuals with common experiences and allowing them to help each other. Groups give you a safe place to work directly on your relationships with others. They provide an opportunity to express feelings clearly and openly and increase your capacity for emotional intimacy.

Psychotherapy Groups are led by a therapist and typically meet weekly and require members to make a commitment for a certain length of time. They are usually limited to 8-10 members. The structure of the therapy group allows members to get to know each other well and play an important role in each others growth process. Individuals are encouraged to self-reflect and interact in order to break out of limiting relationship patterns. Some therapy groups may focus on specific topics, while others may maintain the interpersonal process itself as the primary focus. Both types of therapy groups for personal growth. Lakeview Center offers general interpersonal therapy groups and therapy groups for eating disorders.
