WHAT IS GROUP?

Group therapy provides many benefits. Individuals who join groups are able to make connections in the community, share experiences, and learn and process together. Some people may feel intimidated before their first group. This is normal. But most people report that within their first session they already felt comfortable and look forward to the next session. Most people describe group as a helpful and rewarding experience.

Groups are facilitated by Dr. Al Levy, PhD, LCSW & Caroline H. Schiff, LMSW at our office: 10 Bay St, Westport, CT 06880. All groups are insurance reimbursable and sliding scale payment options are offered. For questions and to RSVP, please contact me at: cschiff@carolinehschiff.com or 203.293.8494. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to group!
