Group therapy involves one or more therapists who lead a group of five to eight clients. A group will usually meet for an hour a week, although some group therapy is more intensive and will meet more frequently. Some group therapies require people to also attend individual therapy sessions.
Most groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, grief, anxiety, chronic pain, or addiction, while other groups focus more generally on improving relationships, social skills, or learning coping skills.

Janna Schriber, MS, LPC, NCC
I acknowledge the messiness, the humanness, of life inherent to us all; we can't do it all on our own. I collaborate with clients to find tools to navigate through this, and create a more centering and stabilizing way of life, despite the dizziness, disorientation, and disconnect. My approach in therapy recognizes these challenges central to living; I help each client towards a life of meaning, fulfillment, and happiness. My therapeutic style provides a sense of freshness, nonjudgement, and an authentic presence to each session.
As a therapist I take into account the complexity of human beings - always interacting with our environment, with others, and with ourselves. I see each client as whole, and our mental health as a very significant and intricate piece to our overall health and well-being. I use a client-centered, collaborative approach utilizing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Strategies, Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical-Based Therapy (DBT).Education:

Ken Young, PsyD., LP
I believe that individuals who are dissatisfied with life, feel stuck, or who are at a general loss of knowing how to move forward can greatly benefit from therapy. Our lives are shaped by many influences including past and present experiences, biological, psychological, social, and cultural factors. Those influences may have been positive, negative, or a bit of both. My goal is to work collaboratively with you in the context of the therapeutic relationship to find relief and equip you with tools that you can utilize moving forward.
