GROUP THERAPY FAQ
Do I have to commit to a group for a year or two in order to participate?
No, your length of participation is decided between yourself and Dr. Underwood.
Why would I choose a group vs. private sessions?
For some, the fact that it is more affordable means they can benefit from more frequent, sustained support and accountability. The monthly fee for a weekly group is significantly lower than the weekly investment for individual sessions. Attending weekly group meetings allows for less frequent individual sessions.
Where would I go for these group meetings?
The group sessions are held in a private conference room at our offices in Brentwood, Nolensville, or online through a HIPPA approved virtual system.
How do I know if group therapy is a good fit for me?
It’s true that not everyone is suited for a group therapy setting. If you are wondering if group therapy might be a good fit for you, Dr. Underwood will provide a free 30-min consultation that will assist with this decision and will provide admission to an active group.
