Support and Therapy Groups

We offer a variety of Support and Therapy Groups for a wide range of concerns.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, all groups are being offered via telehealth, with video and call-in options.

Support Groups provide an opportunity to share with and learn from others who are in similar situations in a welcoming, confidential environment. 

  • All Support Groups are facilitated by skilled professionals with experience in providing services to older adults.
  • All Support Groups are free or have a nominal suggested donation.

If a group interests you, please call the group facilitator before attending for the first time for eligibility requirements and to confirm dates, which may vary from the listing due to holidays or other scheduling constraints.

Therapy Groups led by Licensed Clinical Social Workers, offer treatment in a group setting for older adults who may be experiencing difficulties in coping with the challenges of aging, such as depression or anxiety.  

Therapy Groups are billable to insurance and require prescreening. Please call the facilitator before attending for the first time.
