Groups run in 12 week cycles, co-facilitated by the therapists listed above and a Master’s level practicum student. Clients may participate in as many cycles as they wish. These are better described as therapy groups, although certainly supportive. Once a cycle begins, it is closed to new members for the duration of the 12 weeks. Individual
therapy is on-going until clients feel they are finished.
Sessions are booked for 1.5 hours as that is viewed as a more
productive time frame. Clients may opt for shorter sessions once
they have worked through larger issues. Therapists hold a minimum

internship before being hired. Therapy is available in English, Farsi,
