Spring 2020 has been tough! We are challenged to work in different or difficult circumstances. There are uprisings across the nation bringing light to injustice that many have experienced silently for years. All of these events have left folks tired, stressed, isolated, and questioning what the future holds. Many are ready to make changes in their own life. With such a great demand, many therapists are finding their rosters full and unable to care for patients that are in need. Group therapy is a great solution!
Please note that this group is completely virtual and is open to clients living in Illinois or Massachusetts only.
