Personal growth occurs in different ways. Group psychotherapy is one medium to promote growth and change and enhance awareness. Psychotherapy groups provide a forum for one to enhance relationship skills, receive support from others struggling with similar concerns, and learn additional ways of considering and approaching life challenges. Common problems explored in Sankofa psychotherapy groups include, but are not limited to, social anxiety, trust and intimacy, feelings of isolation and loneliness, and struggling with finding meaning in life. Our psychotherapy groups are available to those interested in exploring and enhancing many aspects of their lives.
