Why Group Therapy?

Group Therapy provides an opportunity for youth to find support and develop skills while working with peers who have experienced similar challenges. It also brings experiential, hands-on activities which help integrate acquired therapeutic skills into everyday living.

West Ridge Academy Outpatient Counseling Groups

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Group: This group is a great place for adolescents who identify as female to learn how to better regulate their emotions, how to assertively communicate their needs to others, and how to deal with stress in healthy ways.

  • Skills for Success: This group is for young adults ages 18-25 who are looking for additional support to help them navigate the difficult transition from living with mom and dad to living on their own. The group will include practical activities that will increase their ability to be an independent and successful young adult. 

  • Additional support groups for adolescents facing challenges with self-esteem, mood disorders, grief, and other mental health concerns may be made available upon request.
