My LA Therapy's Groups

LGBTQ Support Group

Sexuality is a central part of every person's identity and being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender poses unique challenges, as does questioning one's sexual identity. These can be difficult waters to navigate alone. Whether you're gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning your sexuality, it can be helpful to meet others who are going through similar issues and can provide insight and support and help you realize you are not alone. An LGBTQ support group can be a good place to begin creating a sense of community and identity, relating to others, asking questions and learning to be open about your sexuality.

Overcoming Anxiety Support Group

In this group we explore the underlying caused of anxiety and begin to face our issues head on and practice another way of being. We will practice techniques to regulate anxiety as well as explore what we may be avoiding and channeling into anxiety, which may cause problems in many areas in life. We will provide support, acceptance and compassion to each of our members and explore triggers of anxiety. Anxiety comes in many forms and all are welcome including those who struggle with eating disorders, hypochondria, social anxiety, panic attacks and anxiety related to relationships and dating.

Teen Support Group

Teenage is a difficult time. As a teen you have to adjust to new demands at school and in social relationships as well as learn how to navigate your relationship with your parents as you gain independence. You are learning to define your values, who you want to be and what you want out of life. It's a lot of pressure and it seems to come all at once. Having a group of other teens who you can relate to can help you see that others are going through the same struggles so you don't feel alone.
