The two form an alliance, or bond that enables trust and personal growth. Our professional, caring, supportive Counselors can help. These sessions are used to give the client an opportunity to speak privately with the counselor in a private and safe environment. In these sessions the client and counselor will develop client’s treatment plan and set long-term and short-term achievable goals toward recovery and personal success.
Group counseling is counseling with multiple individuals facing a similar concern. The strength in group counseling is that if you have 3, 5 or 10 people together all facing the same issue or similar issues, they can work together. The individuals in the group act as a source of insight and support for each other, while reinforcing the idea that everyone is not the only one experiencing these problems.
