Groups

Led by Kristen Lee MA, LPC


Our Peer Support Groups are interpersonal groups that can be particularly helpful for people seeking to learn how to express their vulnerabilities and feelings with others.  Our groups are safe places to be supported and heard by and to learn from others who have shared similar experiences.

Our Peer Support Groups can be particularly helpful around issues related to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Intimacy and connection
  • Isolation
  • Shame and stigma
  • Dating and relationships
  • Anger
  • Dealing with life stressors

You can benefit from peer support groups by:

  • Obtaining feedback from other group members who are facing or have faced similar issues
  • Sharing your experience of struggles common to members of minority communities (i.e.prejudice, stigma, family relationships, etc.)
  • Experiencing relief from emotional distress through the process of interacting with others
  • Improving interpersonal and coping skills
  • Reducing anxiety, fear and isolation by engaging in a shared experience with others
  • Practicing new communication techniques in a safe environment
  • Practicing vulnerability
  • Boosting self-confidence

Why a Peer Support Groups?

A Peer Support Group is a powerful tool for fostering personal growth. It is a safe place where you can discuss shared issues, practice new ways of expressing yourself and modify how you view yourself. Many find this type of group helpful in learning about themselves and improving their interpersonal relationships; it can also bring relief to unpleasant feelings of isolation, depression or anxiety. Peer support groups can also be a great way to complement the individual therapeutic work that you may already be engaged in.

Groups are a great place to interact with others while obtaining direct feedback about any distortions in your thinking that you may be having. You will be able to obtain guidance and different perspectives on how to handle specific challenges that you are dealing with.
