Resources

 

Therapy Groups

Groups are a valuable resource in conjunction with or as a follow up after individual therapy. The dynamic of group interaction allows a unique opportunity to learn and practice new skills. To help this occur, groups are structured to include the following elements:

  • A safe environment in which you are able to feel respected and valued
  • An understanding of group goals and group norms
  • Investment by facilitator and members to produce a consistent group experience

Boundaries Therapy Groups

Boundaries are the words, thoughts, feelings, values and behaviors that define who we are and what we will do. Sometimes we get confused about what is our responsibility and what is not, especially in relationships.

Boundaries therapy groups are an opportunity to learn the godly principles of boundaries and how to apply them to our everyday lives.

A new group will begin in Fall 2017. Call us or email Carrie at carriebussmann@truthinlovecounseling.com to participate.


Skills Group

Skills Group, led by Dr. Jonathan Lindsey, LCPC, will help you:

·        Reduce anxiety         ·        Lift depression         

·        Calm emotions          ·        Put aside violent reactions

·        Feel safe inside         ·        And more

Designed to accompany your primary therapy, the skills group teaches concrete things you can DO when you begin to feel overwhelmed and out of control.  Group therapy is composed of 8 sessions. Each meeting offers a different set of actions with opportunities to practice, get feedback, and overcome stumbling blocks in a safe environment with other learners and a caring professional.

Populations include children, adolescents, teens, adults, seniors and families. Settings include schools, residential programs, correctional facilities, community services, nursing homes and in home with families. I have utilized Art Therapy to address emotional needs including grief and loss, attachment issues, depression, anxiety, disruptive mood disorders, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, PTSD and other trauma related disorders. Furthermore, I have found art therapy to be a vehicle for connecting with self and others to bring social change."
