Interested in joining a group?
Contact Melissa McDavid at email@example.com if you are interested in joining a group in the Fall of 2021.
Why group? Group counseling involves meeting with a group of individuals who all face similar concerns. Group sessions involve sharing your experiences and listening to others experiences. Group counseling provides a supportive environment to discuss problems and concerns and work toward your goals.
1) You are not alone
2) Groups can be a sounding board
3) Groups can teach you about yourself
