Group Therapy in Pasadena, CA
Call Today: (626) 765-9944
Group therapy offers a powerful dynamic that can be helpful to participants alone or as an adjunct to individual therapy. One of the most important benefits of group therapy is that it allows participants to experience that they are not alone and that others experience similar challenges and life struggles. So often when we are struggling we feel isolated and alone in our pain.
Foster Trusted Connections With Others
Group therapy fosters a connection with others and allows you to feel seen in a safe environment with trusted others. Additionally, it allows you to not only experience the support of others, but to provide support, allowing the group to benefit from your experience, strength, and resilience.

Healing from Narcissistic Abuse: Women’s Survivors Group
The term “narcissism” has become a part of our everyday vernacular, but is often misunderstood and misattributed to self-involvement. In reality, narcissism is defined by structural deficits disguised by an inflated sense of self-importance and resulting in a lack of insight, empathy and understanding and with damaging effects on loved ones, who tend to personalize the narcissist’s bad behavior and are unequipped to deal with what comes their way, due to their own wounds.
Recognize Narcissistic Behavior and Abuse
This support group helps to define narcissism and narcissistic abuse, helps participants recognize narcissistic behavior, and provide participants a safe space to understand their own role in unhealthy dynamics, take responsibility for their own behavior, and, ultimately, learn how to create healthy boundaries and heal their wounds. If you are interested in participating in the group or would like more information, please contact Layla Summers, AMFT at email@example.com.
