Want to learn more about yourself? Interested in improving your relationships? Feeling lonely or disconnected?

Why not come join a safe, fun, energizing group of your peers where you can explore how you relate to yourself and to others while receiving support and feedback. Presenting issues vary widely from depression, anxiety, and difficulties relating to/accepting self or others, issues of family conflict or abuse, and more. Students who want to resolve specific concerns as well as those seeking personal growth are welcome. This can be a space to get your peers' perspectives on various issues and recognize that you are not the only one.

We currently offer the following groups:

General Process Group:

The focus of this group is to help you better understand yourself and others. Members of this group frequently talk about relationship concerns, family interactions, academic stressors, depression, anxiety, and how to handle the stress of being a student, friend, and partner to others.
