Announcement icon The Psychotherapy Groups that I lead both for Young Adults and Helping Professionals are up and running virtually through a Zoom platform
I lead groups for Early Career Professionals in Mental Health and for Young Adults dealing with a variety of life transitions. The use of Group Psychotherapy as a vehicle for healing and change is immensely gratifying since I get to not only hear about the results of hard work by clients but get to witness them as well.
The process of building a relationship with 5-7 other individuals over time moves clients FROM observing old patterns of relating and connecting, THROUGH building trust and confidence, TO experimenting with new ways of being with others in the world.
The process is not easy. After all, the work and change takes place within a group. And one’s First group, family, has not always been conducive to Best Practice in terms of forming healthy relationships. And yet it is back within a group setting, (therapy group) that an opportunity exists to recognize and change painful ways of being in the world.

Howie Schnairsohn Group Therapist's Groups

Young Adult Group

CO-LED by Ann Keren Neeman-Kantor, PsyD. This is a mixed gender group of young adults who draw upon each other's struggles, insights, and strengths to navigate transitions, explore relationships, and increase self-esteem. As witnessed in the timeless coming-of-age movie 'Breakfast Club', the process of becoming more fully known to one another develops trust, draws members closer, and furthers an appreciation of one's uniqueness. The group becomes a secure base from which new challenges are often met with greater confidence, clarity, and focus.

More about this group

Early Career Professional in the Helping Fields

A MYTH exists that professionals, serving the mental health needs of others, sit above the fray of the human condition. Although most are skilled, knowledgeable, and effective helpers, like all sapiens, some bend, some wobble, and a few fall. Firstly there are the occupational hazards of fatigue, isolation, and uncertainty. The toll is even heavier, however, when combined with areas of personal/interpersonal challenge. I have been leading dynamically oriented relational process groups for members of the helping professions for 20 years and I am impressed by its effectiveness for discovery, deepening connections, increased self esteem, rejuvenation, and repair.
