Announcement icon During COVID-19 My therapy group is on zoom weekly. My individuals I can do in person or telehealth. Typically I do our intake in person.
Welcome, I'm Evelyn Dougherty and the director of BSTG. I've been practicing social therapy for 20 years. Whether your in emotional pain from a loss, a break up, raising children, caring for older parents, health issues or challenges at work - we can work together to heal your pain and support you to grow emotionally. My short term work is individual therapy and my longer term therapy is group.
My specialty is group therapy. When dealing with emotional pain, the support and creativity of the group environment has a transformative impact on people. People grow and create new ways of seeing and being in the creative social process of building something new with others. Our groups are diverse in age, gender, sexuality and issues and thus powerful!
What is unique to our practice is that people come into a group with very different issues and people from many different backrounds and learn to create something positive together. That creative activity helps people grow emotionally and challenges the limitations and self critique we can burden ourselves with.

Boston Social Therapy Group's Groups

Social Therapy Group

Our Social Therapy groups give people the opportunity to work on their life in a group setting. This activity is helpful in the following ways: we begin to see "how others experience us," we can create new things ways of being emotional with others, and we can learn to build healthier relationships. Our groups ages are l8 and up, men and women, all races, and all sexual preferences. We currently have openings in our weekly Wednesday night group (which is currently on zoom) and a Couples group (on zoom) once a month.
