Currently, Mrs. Massey offers Group Psychotherapy and Intensive Short Term Psychotherapy services. Group therapy is effective for many different reasons. In can be used to introduce someone to counseling, offer education so that individual sessions are more productive, and provide a setting to main progress from therapy. Intensive short term means that clients are participating in more than one therapy service such as group and individual and/or extended sessions that last 2-3 hours. Intensive therapy is beneficial for people who are very motivated to make a specific change or who have not been able to make changes in previous therapy, but not necessarily for people who are in crisis.
