Groups + Group Therapy

Join our engaging and integrative therapy groups led by our multidisciplinary team. Please note, group sessions are not a substitute for individual therapy, and the goals are not personalized to each participant. Depending on the age and stage of the group, activities encompass playful interactions and meaningful conversations. We value the power of real-time feedback in a secure environment, making group sessions a valuable stand-alone service or a perfect complement to one-on-one therapy sessions. Some groups are psychotherapeutic and some are activity-based only.

Group Information

The sessions take place in-clinic though some groups have an out-and-about component. Out-and-about activities incur additional costs. Intakes are free if we are not a good match.

Our groups are talk based and require a certain level of expressive and receptive language.

We offer age appropriate groups (ages 4-80) for individuals with social differences, siblings, parents, and other family members. Other individuals with socially-related difficulties are also invited to participate (e.g., ADHD, anxiety, depression).

Group therapies can be very rewarding and provide a forum for individuals to interact with peers who have various strengths and areas for growth. 

Our Social Skills groups focus on social thinking education, skilled activities and support with aims to increase the participant’s social insight and skills, self-esteem, and quality of life.

Detailed group information:

  • A group intake session is required to join our group list and to assess if our groups are a good match. This is free if our groups are not a good match; for good matches, intakes are either $75 (ages <15 years) or $125 (ages >16 years).
  • We recruit similarly-skilled individuals in each group and may have 1 or 2 participants that are emerging in such skill set.
  • Groups typically consist of 8 – 12 individuals (except for preschool groups which are 5 or less) and we do not allow new participants to join after the 3rd session. 
  • We ask individuals to not start a group if you expect to miss 3 or more sessions; this helps to keep the dynamic consistent.
  • Most groups run 3 times a year and are 12 weeks in length. Summer term is usually abbreviated to 10 sessions.
  • All groups meet once a week, except for weeks of major holidays, and depending on age each group lasts 45 – 75 minutes.  
  • The CPT code for group sessions is 90853.
  • Throughout the group sessions, direct feedback will be provided. A group party concludes most groups. 
  • Repeating groups or advancing to the next group are the next options.
  • Depending on recruitment we have female/male-only groups offered.
  • In addition to our social skill groups, we provide activity and identity based groups such as: Dungeons and Dragons, Anime and LGBTQIA+.
