Philip Littman's Groups

Men's Group

Phil has facilitated weekly supportive psychotherapy men's groups for over 15 years. The experience of men's groups can help overcome social and emotional isolation that often accompany many difficulties for men. It gives men a safe place to be understood, share without shame, and be more relational in their lives. Men often enter the groups experiencing transitions such as ending a relationship or marriage: looking for more meaning from their lifes, going through a period of loss, depression, anxiety, or trauma; becoming a single father; or in the process of recovery (alcoholism, substance abuse, sexual addiction etc.)
