GROUP THERAPY

 

Women | Men | Gay Men | Seniors
Dr. Friedman conducts ongoing psychotherapy groups with 5 to 10 participants.  Weekly group sessions take place at her office in Santa Monica, California and last one hour and thirty minutes.

Members have the opportunity to talk about their own problems and hear about the issues of others. In a safe, supportive, and confidential environment, members can actively participate, observe and reflect. Group interaction provides members with feedback—not only from the Dr. Friedman, but from other members. In group therapy, members often find encouragement and a sense of security in realizing that they are not alone.
