GROUP DESCRIPTIONS: 

 

Process Groups: in this group you will discuss recovery challenges and struggles with peers and process feelings, and experiences. This is a group that is helpful to process difficulties in recovery, garner support and normalize eating disorder experiences. 

 

Lunch Group/ Goals: You bring your own meal (there will be specific guidelines) and eat with peers to normalize eating and have additional accountability. We will set weekly goals around recovery.

 

Binge Eating/ Bulimia Group: This group is intended for people who struggle with binge eating disorder or bulimia. If you have anorexia nervosa, binge-purge type this group is not likely to be as helpful. This group is a mix between learning and exploring more about binge eating through learning, discussion and self-reflection.

 

Dinner Group/ Discussion: As a group we will either go out to a restaurant or order take out. Additionally, after the meal we will discuss challenges and thoughts. This group is helpful to normalize eating in restaurants and outside of home. There will be an additional $10-15 charge to purchase meal. 

 

Boundaries in Recovery: In order to recover from an eating disorder, boundaries are necessary. In this group you will learn healthy communication skills, how to effectively set healthy boundaries and prioritize your recovery. This is a mix between a discussion and psychoeducation group. 

 

Breakfast/Successful Strategies: You will bring your own meal (there will be specific guidelines) and eat with peers to normalize eating and have additional accountability. Additionally, we will discuss skills and methods to reduce slips and relapse behaviors.

 

Body Dysmorphia and Body Dissatisfaction: This group is for people who particularly struggle with hyperfocusing on parts of their appearance outside of their eating disorder concerns involving weight, shape and size. You will learn tools from a CBT lens and exposure lens to cope with and change the thoughts which perpetuate your appearance judgements and concerns. If you struggle with body image only this likely will not be the best fit. 

 

Perfectionism: If you struggle with setting high standards for yourself and often have the thought that you are “not good enough,” this group could be helpful. We will explore using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, how to recognize perfectionism and how to challenge perfectionistic tendencies and thinking. 

 

LEAP: As a group, we will explore the only curriculum created to address overactivity and compulsive exercise in eating disorders. You will gain insight into the role exercise plays into your eating disorder and learn strategies to decrease exercise.

 

Symptom Management/ Recovery Tools: Learn strategies and ways to cope with urges, discuss topics important to recovery such as honesty, accountability, self-forgiveness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAQ’s and Information:

.

How many people are in the groups/ how many can I miss?

The groups which are held in-person will have a max of 6-7 people. Online groups will cap at 6-7  people. If there are at least 4 people committed to a group, it will be held. If you are highly likely in the next two months to need residential treatment or PHP treatment, I ask you do not sign up- unless your team agrees to a trial. I do not allow new people to join groups after the second week. My hope is the same people all stay in the group for stability and consistency. You may miss one group and still sign up for the group cycle. If you plan to miss more, I ask you discuss with me first. 

 

I have never attended group therapy, I am nervous!

It is super common to be nervous about group therapy. Since eating disorders are so shaming and isolating, peer therapy can be super helpful for recovery. The more you know your group members, hopefully the more comfortable you will become.

 

Can I join your groups if I am not your individual client?

Absolutely! You can join my groups regardless of who your individual therapist is. I do ask you inform and or discuss with your therapist.

 

Will insurance cover my groups?

Yes! I take a variety of insurance plans. Most will cover two groups in the same day, but some will not. Mostly all will cover multiple groups per week. If you have questions, I can help with that. Some insurance plans do have a copay. I also take private pay and my prices are lower than most groups in the area.

 

Can I take two groups or more in one day?

You absolutely can. There are some insurance plans that will cover multiple groups in a day and some that will not. 

 

Can Anyone Join Groups?

Your treatment team must determine that you are appropriate for outpatient care for the next couple of months and you can make the commitment to attend groups regularly.

 

How many groups should I sign up for?

I usually encourage people who have stepped down from a higher level of care to attend about three groups weekly if feasible. If you are needing a higher level of care, I can do a two-month trial of groups, but that has to be allowed by your individual therapist and team. I would recommend more than three groups per week. If you are unsure what would be helpful, I can set up a short consultation.
