Individual therapy is a highly efficacious approach in seeking professional intervention to effectively mitigate a wide spectrum of emotional or behavioral difficulties. When guided by a proficient therapist, fostering an open and receptive mindset, and actively investing effort, therapy holds the potential to bring about transformative changes in one's life. At the Reese Collective our clinicians have a range of specialties with extensive experience and training. Read about their respective areas of focus and approaches to therapy to determine which may be the best fit for you.
Group therapy is a form of therapy where a small group of individuals, typically around 6-12 people, meet regularly with one or more trained therapists. It provides a unique and valuable opportunity for individuals facing similar challenges or issues to come together and support each other in a safe and confidential environment. Research has shown that group therapy can be just as effective, if not more effective, than individual therapy in certain circumstances. It offers the opportunity to practice new skills and behaviors within a supportive group setting, receive immediate feedback, and witness others' progress, which can be highly motivating. It can be particularly helpful for individuals who feel isolated or struggle with interpersonal relationships, as it provides a sense of community and social support. In group therapy, participants have the opportunity to share their experiences, thoughts, and emotions with others who can relate and understand. This sense of belonging and connection can lead to a deeper level of self-awareness and personal growth. It also provides an opportunity to learn from others' perspectives and gain new insights into one's own struggles and patterns of behavior. At the Reese Collective, our therapists are experienced in leading group therapy sessions and creating a secure and confidential space for individuals to explore their concerns. If you are interested in joining a group therapy session, we encourage you to reach out to us to learn more about our offerings and find the group that best suits your needs.

"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done."– Rocky Balboa
