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.

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.

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.
