Collin County Support Groups

”The two most powerful words when we’re in struggle: me too.” – Brene Brown  Group counseling provides the benefit of knowing other people have the same challenges and questions.

 

This group setting becomes a strong support group of peers to increase one’s understanding of their struggles but often offer multiple possibilities of solutions and coping strategies.

 

Group counseling is a powerful supplement to individual therapy and many participants often report back how surprised they were about feeling understood and bolstered as they work through their challenges.
