Gail Bach's Groups

Women's Support Group Therapy

This group is for Women of all ages to support and share their life transitions and experiences. The group experience is a unique process to further identify, clarify one's desires, and to support the resolution of issues that may create obstacles in one's life and relationships. The ultimate focus is to promote movement in desired directions in one's life with a deepened contextual understanding of self and others. The group as a modality provides a safe environment for supportive, explorative treatment. We will work in the here-and-now.
