Groups

Did you know you can use health insurance to participate in group therapy? Group therapy is a great opportunity to feel less alone and learn from others who understand what you are feeling. Read more about various group counseling opportunities below.

Some groups are time-limited, which means that you join the group at the start and are expected to attend all sessions for a set number of weeks. Some groups are ongoing and open, which means you can join a session any time that you would like, just sign up in advance by reaching out via the Group Interest form, or by calling the office at (516) 256-9523 or emailing info.blossomingcherry@gmail.com.
