Group Therapy in Chicago

Therapy groups help you feel less alone.  Groups connect individuals and allow them to help one another. Clients in groups improve their relationships and can increase emotional intimacy. Research shows that group therapy is just as effective as individual therapy, for a much lower cost. For a review of this research, click here.

Group therapy is particularly effective if you’re struggling with interpersonal problems or you don’t have a strong support network in your life. Group therapy can also help you deepen your work in individual therapy.

We accept BCBS PPO for all therapy groups. Full fees for group sessions range from $75-85 and some reduced fees are available.


Interpersonal Process Groups

Lakeview Center’s interpersonal process groups have up to 8-10 members that meet weekly for 60-90 minutes.   Process groups help members increase awareness of their thoughts and feelings in the moment and express them openly to each other.  Group members offer each other support and feedback.  Members can discover what roles they tend to play in groups and safely try out new ways of relating.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training Groups

Our DBT Skills Training Group will begin running in April 2023. Please contact us for more information or to begin individual skills training.

DBT skills help you manage strong emotions. DBT skills groups may be particularly useful to individuals struggling with personality disorders, eating disorders, self-injury, and other impulsive and compulsive behaviors.

Groups are open to new members every four weeks. Each unit focuses on one of the four DBT skill areas:  core mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. DBT groups are offered to clients of all genders, age 18 and older.
