Counseling Center

Division of Student Life and Enrollment


Group Counseling Logo

In group therapy students meet together as a group to describe, discuss and learn from their problems under the supervision of a therapist.

  • Many students are surprised to learn they enjoy group work as much if not more than individual therapy.
  • Research shows that for many issues group therapy is just as effective as individual therapy. 

Some of our groups require an intake screening first, while others are open. To learn more click the group below or email us at:
