Therapy Groups

Therapy groups are an excellent way to address some common psychological issues and problems such as depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and perfectionism. Unlike workshops, groups meet regularly for a predetermined period of time (usually 4 to 8 weeks). Groups offer a supportive and safe environment to learn strategies to overcome psychological challenges, and to interact with other students who have similar challenges.

During the fall and winter 2020-21 semesters, all therapy groups will be offered through online video conferencing software; groups will not be offered in-person

Students interested in joining a therapy group must have an Initial Consultation (first visit). Please call 780-492-5205 to book an Initial Consultation at your convenience. 

CBT Group
