Therapeutic groups

Strive (men’s group) and Healthy Relationships (women’s group)

Relationships, whether they be with friends, family members, co-workers or romantic partners, are an important part of leading a healthy and fulfilling life. Some relationships help bring out the best in you, while others may leave you feeling hurt, angry, or insecure. It’s not always easy to determine which relationships are serving you well and how to fix the ones that are broken.

Strive and Healthy Relationships are 16-week therapy groups for people experiencing challenges in relationships. The group will help you enhance your well-being by showing you how to develop healthier relationship skills based on your own personal values and what you want your life to be. We want you to experience stronger relationships and a balanced life with less conflict.
