Group Meeting Schedule
Mondays 5:30pm - 7 pm
Perhaps you think the idea of joining a group sounds a bit intimidating. The truth is: IT IS! But we think we do some of our best work when we might feel a tad uncomfortable. We offer classes in a variety of different areas:
For those who are trying to learn more about themselves, go deeper, and enhance their toolkit on life.
For those who want to take their relationship from a 4 or a 5 to a 10.
Classes for as young as 2-5 all the way up to high school.
Classes focused around anxiety, depression, trauma, mood, OCD, and more.
Groups fill up quickly and have limited capacity. When we create a group we want to know that the people who are signing up are dedicated to this experience. Additionally, closed groups (meaning a group where new members cannot join halfway through) provide a much more cohesive experience in terms of support and curriculum.
A support group is generally peer lead, meaning by somebody who does not necessarily have training in mental health. These groups are focused on camaraderie and not feeling alone in a specific struggle. Thrive’s groups provide this aspect as well as a robust curriculum to gain more tools to battle emotional and mental health struggles. All groups are therapist lead and will feature a therapist whose expertise is in the given topic of the group.
Yes! In fact, a poll at Thrive showed that 73% of group participants found group therapy to be as effective or more effective than individual therapy. Plus, we don’t need a poll to tell you that it’s about a third of the cost.
We’re always happy to talk you through this portion. A lot of our groups have a specific diagnosis to them and that can be a good indicator if it is a good fit for you. You can also always speak with your therapist about the group, whether that therapist is with Thrive or not.
Nobody wants to stay committed to something that is not benefiting them. We completely understand this. Talk to your group leader and talk to us and we will find a solution.
Groups are an amazing way to do some great work at a fraction of the cost of traditional therapy. Perhaps you think the idea of joining a group sounds a bit intimidating. The truth is: IT IS! But we think we do some of our best work when we might feel a tad uncomfortable.
