The support and accountability achieved by regularly talking and listening to others who share similar challenges is perhaps the most obvious, but far from the only, benefit of group therapy. With the guidance of a trained professional, the confidential sharing with others creates a cohesive dynamic; provides perspective, belonging, and acceptance, and boosts the experience beyond that of individual therapy. All members are screened and selected by Dr. Ruegg with the expectation of confidentiality, respect, and full participation.
