Group Therapy


Group therapy is a type of counseling that involves meeting with a group of individuals whom all face similar concerns. Group sessions involve sharing your experiences and listening to others experiences. Group counseling provides a supportive environment to discuss problems and concerns and work toward your goals. The experience often reduces loneliness, normalizes your experiences, promotes change in meaningful ways, and helps you to learn and process new life skills.

At Joie de Vivre our groups are specific to a certain demographic or topic. As a result, groups have pre-screenings in order to ensure the group is a good fit for you and that you are a good fit for the group. Enrollment in a group requires registration, an initial screening with a group facilitator, and an initial deposit to participate. Once a group is “closed” no additional members can join. This protects the safety, confidentiality, and continuity of the group – and honors your commitment to grow and heal.
