Group Therapy

Group Room

Lakeview Center is now offering both in-person and online groups!

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. Our group therapists can help you express yourself.

Group therapy can help you deepen your work in individual therapy.

We accept BCBS PPO for all therapy groups. Full fees for group sessions range from $65-85 and some sliding 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 clients 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.

Lakeview’s DBT groups are currently online. Please check back for information on in-person groups.

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.
