Through our supportive and cohesive group therapy program, clients begin to heal their wounds in a safe, non‐judgmental environment. Many of our clients comment on how the group therapy process has allowed them to feel less isolated in their struggles. For many, their group experience is often the first time in their lives that they feel as if others can relate to and identify with the issues that brought them to treatment. Our groups also help clients build interpersonal mastery and provide them an avenue to resolve conflicts in a healthy and healing way. We have seen clients flourish in group therapy, as they learn for perhaps the first time to trust and share without fear of shame or judgment.
The Oasis offers a wide variety of groups tailored to each individual’s specific needs. After meeting with your individual therapist, a personalized group therapy program will be designed just for you. Some of the groups we offer include:
Our Dialectical Behavior Therapy Group allows you to learn to live your life in a mindful way, by learning skills to help regulate your emotions, handle distress and crisis, and to decrease interpersonal conflict.
Our expressive and experiential groups utilize imagery, dance, music, psychodrama, poetry, storytelling, movement and visual arts to foster growth and healing.
Nutrition/Meal Support Groups
Through our mindful eating model, clients begin to connect with the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that feed their disordered eating process. As part of this process we help to support, encourage and guide clients, as they begin their journey to cultivating a new relationship with food.
The Oasis offers women’s groups that provide caring and supportive space where women can bond with one another and embark on their journey toward self‐discovery. Our groups offer a place to build female relationships, to laugh and have fun, to support one another with compassion, and to learn from the wisdom of others.
Group for Parents
Parents often wonder how to best help their child in the process of recovery. In this group, parents will become educated about the recovery process. They will have a place to engage with other parents in a supportive environment, to feel empathized, supported, and empowered as they navigate the recovery process with their child. Parents will learn how best to support their child as well as how to care for themselves during this difficult time.
Process groups provide a safe, non-judgmental support system to supplement individual therapy. Clients bring topics into the group to process with each other and build validating, supportive connections. Separate groups available for both teens and adults.
