Group Therapy

Group Room

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

At 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 groups help to restore a sense of hope by connecting individuals with common experiences and allowing them to help one another. Groups offer a safe place for clients to work on their interpersonal relationships and to increase their capacity for emotional intimacy in their lives. Our group therapists have training and experience in several types of effective group therapy.

Group therapy can accelerate the progress you are already making in individual therapy, or, on its own, give you a powerful immediate experience of emotional connection.

 

Interpersonal Process Groups 

Lakeview Center’s interpersonal process groups are led by a therapist or co-therapists specifically trained in psychoanalytic group therapy.  These are long-term groups with up to 8-10 members that meet weekly for 60-90 minutes.  The structure of the group allows members to form positive and honest intimate relationships.  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 to each other and are encouraged to experiment with new ways of interacting that can change your relationships outside of the group.

NEW In-Person All-Gender Interpersonal Process Groups forming!

Wednesdays 9-10:15 a.m.  Please contact Spencer Biel, PsyD or Niquie Dworkin, PhD

 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training Groups

Lakeview’s DBT groups are still currently online but will be transitioning to in-person within a few months. Please contact us for details.

DBT skills offer new ways to manage strong emotions and can be a valuable addition to individual psychotherapy. DBT skills groups may be particularly useful to individuals struggling with 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, aged 16 and older.  To learn more about Dialectical Behavior Therapy visit our DBT page.

Online DBT Skills Training Groups meet

Tuesdays 5-6:45 p.m.
Sundays 10-11:45 a.m.

For more information, please contact Niquie Dworkin, PhD.
