Our Services: Group Therapy

Group Therapy

Therapy Center of Philadelphia offers therapy and support groups addressing a variety of topics. You may find that group therapy is a more effective way to feel positive changes in your life. Group members have reported that they reduced dysfunctional acting out behaviors, their depression and isolation lowered, and they gained a heightened understanding of how to build healthy relationships. Support groups can normalize your experience, reduce feelings of shame, and connect you with others beyond the life of the group. Groups are also an affordable alternative to individual therapy.

Starting a family as a queer, trans, or non-binary person can be overwhelming and scary.  Therapy Center of Philadelphia in partnership with Walnut Psychotherapy Center and Philadelphia Family Pride, offers an information and support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, and non-binary communities considering parenthood.  

MaybeBaby & Beyond: Exploring LGBTQ Pathways to Parenthood offers an 8-week support group experience that will provide information from legal, financial, and medical experts, as well as emotional, social and community support.  Members will come out with a sense of their options, how to navigate the process as a queer or transgender person, and connection with others on a similar journey. 

The groups will include guests such as doctors, endocrinologists, adoption experts, natural fertility experts, sperm banks, surrogacy information, and parents who took different journeys to get to parenthood.
