ONGOING Support Groups
Support group counseling helps to lessen feelings of isolation, self-blame and denial. In groups, clients are offered the opportunity to learn from each other and to express and better understand their own experience. Support groups provide a safe, supportive environment enabling constructive sharing. All groups meet at the Center on a regular basis.
