mental health/DBT process group
Group therapy provides a safe space for clients to find their voice and relate to others in a healthy way with the guidance of a professional therapist. This group is co-led with Claire Hughes, LCSW. In DBT, four skills modules are designed to specifically assist individuals in better managing behavioral, emotional and cognitive instability. Their intent is to help people with problems with anger or the expression with anger, episodic depression, irritability or anxiety, intense or chaotic relationships, impulsivity, stress and feelings of emptiness.
Taking care of yourself and eating regularly is hard enough when you struggle with an eating disorder and it’s only become more difficult during social isolation. We want to support you in sitting with difficult emotions, staying accountable to your body’s nutritional needs, and changing disordered behaviors around mealtime that keep you in the destructive ED cycle. This meal support group is 90 minutes long and includes 30 minutes for eating together virtually, followed by 60 minutes of processing the emotional and behavioral responses to the meal.
