Here at Counseling by the Sea, we also provide group therapy & art therapy experiences for pre-screened clients who are of similar age range and struggling with similar issues and goals. Groups meet weekly for 8-10 consecutive weeks at a time, at the same day and time of each week. Group counseling is a wonderful way to gain an added therapeutic experience, by relating to, learning from and helping other people, in the midst of your own healing journey.


At this time, we are offering the following group therapy experiences:
