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 I've been a practicing therapist for over 20 years. Whether your in emotional pain from a loss, a break up, relationship stress, raising children, caring for older parents, health issues or challenges at work - I will work to support you and help you to grow emotionally so your in a better position to deal with what life challenges you face. My short term work is individual and couples counseling my longer term therapy is group and couples 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 about my group is that people come in with different issues, from different backrounds and ages, and learn to create something new together. That creative activity helps people grow emotionally and change how we could respond to people and things in a more positive way!

Evelyn Dougherty'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.
