Group Counseling


Counseling & Psychological Services offers several group counseling options to meet various needs. Our office provides open groups where new members can join each week as well as closed groups where no new members can join after the group has been established. Group counseling has a variety of benefits in that one may experience a sense of belonging, establish a community, experience encouragement in learning that others may be dealing with  similar struggles, and celebrate the successes of growing together.

Open Groups

Closed Groups

Making Peace with Food

Do you feel stress around eating and/or exercise? Sometimes the most helpful step is realizing you’re not alone. In fact, it’s so helpful we have added a second group! Making Peace with Food uses a variety of evidence based treatment modalities geared specifically towards disordered eating and difficult relationships with exercise and appearance. It also provides a place for group members to find words for their own thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a nonjudgmental environment. Because this struggle can extend far beyond meal times, members can also expect discussion around the way you view yourself, relationships, ways to express your opinions and emotions, anxiety, burnout, depression, perfectionism, self-criticism, and academic pressure.
