The purpose of this group is to understand and change our emotional patterns that lead to regrettable and/or unhealthy behaviors (withdrawal, lashing out, etc.). Emotion regulation is about managing our emotions in a way that allows us to problem-solve, feel in-control, and communicate in healthy ways.
This is a skills-based group with concepts and interventions that will be taught and applied. Of course, support will happen organically throughout the group, but this group is intended to provide you with the interventions you need to get a handle on your emotions so they don’t handle you.
Please note that this group is completely virtual/online due to COVID-19 precautions.
Dr. Nicole Murray is a Clinical Neuropsychologist offering remote therapy sessions to NYS-based clients, as well as in-person neuropsychological testing. Many of her clients are dealing with increased frustration, irritability, and/or feel unable to manage their emotions.
