In keeping with our philosophies about the importance of relationships and collaboration, we are proud to offer a robust selection of group therapy services. We construct our therapy groups based on specific presenting problems, life circumstances, shared identities, and/or the type of skills that need further development. Clients have confirmed for us that participating in group therapy is indeed a powerful adjunct to their individual therapy experience. Clients who are seeing therapists outside of Kindred Psychology are welcome to participate in our groups while continuing to see their community therapists.
For a list of the groups we are currently offering, please see below.

This group series is facilitated by our therapist who has advanced training and certification in DBT. You can learn more about this approach here.
