We offer a range of therapy groups for teens and adults in the Tampa Bay area.
No matter the topic, group members consistently tell us that the one thing that helped them most . . . was simply to sit & talk with others "who really got it."
Body Image Telehealth Group: "Constructed Identities." Therapists have long known that the image we have of our bodies, like other aspects of our identity, is constructed throughout our lives & experiences. In this group we will focus on ways to "reconstruct" the body identity into something more satisfying. We constantly recreate our online presence. Why not look at how we do this internally in how we look at ourselves & feel about our bodies? Led by Madeline Altabe, PhD on Thursday evenings starting March 22. $36 per session. Please note this group meets online only.
