Group Therapy Services in Brighton and Plymouth, MI.

If you’ve tried many different therapy services and still don’t feel like they are working for you, then a group therapy session is worth considering.

Group therapy provides benefits that you may not get in traditional therapy. There's a sense of camaraderie in group therapy that helps build traits such as accountability, self-discovery, and confidence. There's a reason that support groups have become very popular when dealing with the symptoms of depression caused by a specific incident or affliction.

At McCaskill Family Services, we offer many different kinds of group therapy sessions to treat depression, control panic attacks, teach relaxation techniques, or reduce anxiety. Our group therapy options include equine therapy, eating disorder therapy, and teen therapy. See which one is best for you by reading more below.

Equine-Assisted Therapy Groups

Horses and humans have had a connection for thousands of years. It's this connection that has made horses experts in reading and mirroring human emotions, which has led to the popularity in equine-assisted therapy, also called Horse Therapy, Equine-Assisted Therapy, and Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy.

McCaskill Family Services has teamed up with Howell Equestrian to offer equine therapy, which includes various activities, including therapeutic riding. A specialized equine therapist will give equine therapy patients direct feedback on their pattern of problematic behaviors, including self-defeating negative thoughts and actions.

Eating Disorder & Body Image

Eating disorders and body image issues are common among people of all ages, teenagers especially. Concerns about your body image can lead to eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Even with the modern emphasis on acceptance and the promotion of self-love, unhappiness with one's body image is still a common cause of mental illness.

Our team of licensed clinical psychologists, registered dietitians, and registered nurses specializes in children, teens, and adults with eating disorders. We provide evidence-based treatment of the highest standards based on the most up-to-date research.
