Group Therapy

AT Therapy Austin

If you haven’t personally experienced a therapy group, you may have impressions from shows or movies about how it works. Sometimes those can be helpful and sometimes not so helpful. (For example, at Therapy Austin, you may be sitting in a circle with other people struggling with the same issues, but you won’t be sitting in a darkened room lit by fluorescent bulbs wearing a name tag and asked to join a Fight Club). 

Group therapy has been around for a long time and is an effective way to address issues like anxiety, depression, body image, and relationship struggles - issues most people struggle to manage alone. The truth is, we often get more out of group-learning than solo-efforts. Bonus: group therapy costs less per session than individual therapy!
