Group Therapy Vienna, VA

Group therapy is an opportunity for children and adolescents to work through their concerns and presenting problems among peers with a skilled facilitator.

Our groups are conducted in a private, confidential setting, granting participants an opportunity to improve their social skills and self-esteem while helping others their age do the same. 

Group therapy can be a valuable tool that promotes a sense of belonging and inclusion. Sometimes, people who are struggling feel alone and isolated from their peers. By connecting people dealing with similar challenges, group therapy aims to ensure that each individual feels acknowledged and validated in their experiences. Working alongside other individuals can also facilitate the development of trust and a willingness to be vulnerable.
