What is this group? This group is an opportunity for middle schoolers to find support and connection as well as share experiences with each other. Many tweens have found it difficult to cope with the dramatic changes of COVID-19. How are you dealing? Many have felt their lives severely impacted by changes to their normalcy, in school, and their social circles. This is a safe place for us to talk about what has been going on, learn DBT specific skills, address better control, and reduce anxiety while being able to connect with others. This group will meet in-person to gain support and insights, led by our experienced professionals. We all have similar struggles, and it is important for our mental health to address these concerns.

How do I join? To learn more, or to see if your or someone you know is an appropriate fit for this group, call us to schedule a brief consultation at 630-797-9332.  We look forward to speaking with you!

Want to know more about this group? For many of us, mental health issues can feel overwhelming and isolating, especially when people in our lives struggle to understand where we are coming from. Fortunately, mental wellness does not have to be a solo journey. Research shows that many mental health challenges can benefit from a group therapy experience. This group is an opportunity for adults to share their experiences and present concerns with one another in a safe and healthy atmosphere

Who does it serve? This group is meant to serve adults of all ages, genders, and backgrounds who experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and substance addiction, or have been diagnosed with these disorders. Dr. Harrow is also happy to invite individuals struggling with relationship issues to unpack their challenges in a warm, affirming environment. Prior to the first session, the participant is required to have a phone consultation with Dr. Harrow. If you are a new client, a brief intake session will occur via phone consultation.

What is this group? When facing extraordinary challenges, managing our emotions can be incredibly difficult, especially when we lack the skills or experiences necessary to engage in healthy habits. Our Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Group is designed to
provide group members with techniques and strategies to handle tough emotions and to communicate more effectively with those whom we express ourselves to most often. This group is a structured skills-building group with a heavy didactic component that encourages participants to build valuable skills and apply them to their own personal struggles in a safe and healthy atmosphere.

Who is it for? This group is meant to serve adults of all ages, genders, and backgrounds who experience symptoms of borderline personality disorder or struggle with expressing their emotions effectively.

* Prior to the first session, Dr. Harrow will reach out to prospective participants via email.  If you are a new client, a brief intake session may occur via phone consultation.
