Hillside Trauma Psychology
We offer a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills group, which can be a valuable addition to individual therapy by teaching practical strategies for managing intense emotions and experience in relationships. The group runs for four months in total and is open to new members at the beginning of each four month cycle. The modules are: 1) Mindfulness, 2) Emotion Regulation, 3) Interpersonal Effectiveness and 4) Distress Tolerance. Group members are required to be in individual therapy, however therapists do not have to be DBT-oriented. Please contact us for more information on the group and to find out when the next cycle begins.
This group is for individuals who want to improve their self-understanding and relationships with others. The primary focus of this group is to engage in the "process," or here-and-now experience of relationships in the moment as a means of creating change. Group members will become more familiar with their patterns of relating to others and develop skills to improve the quality of their relationships. Currently this group is open to all genders. Three pre-group orientation and intake meetings are required to join. Please contact us directly for more information and to discuss whether group is good fit for your needs.
In this group we learn to be and heal in relationship with others. We learn to share about our emotional experience and our feelings within and toward one another. We learn how to see and hear others as well as how to feel seen and heard ourselves. We do this in collaboration with one another in a safe and intentional shared space and with presence and guidance from me.
