David S. La Pensee LCSW, LICSW, MSW's Groups

Couples Relational Group.

I work with many couples who are experiencing similiar relational problems in a small group setting lasting up to 1.5 hours on Wednesday evenings at my Westchase, Sheldon Rd. office.There is a six week commitment and fee can be covered by insurance or private pay. The group is open ended and the maximum number of clients in the group is 12. I usually add on participants that have already seen me either in couples therapy or individually as they progress, and want to be part of a group format, where they can experience bonding and cohesiveness with other couples, who share their concerns.
