Psychotherapy

-Individual psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, and children
-Couples and family therapy
-Group therapy

- In collaboration with Duquesne University's Counseling and Wellbeing Center, our Clinic provides weekly interpersonal, process-oriented groups, Connections. These groups are open to Duquesne undergraduate and graduate students. These groups specifically focus on how members interact with each other, working from the "group microcosm" theory that states that the automatic ways that members interact with each other in group represent members' patterns of relating in other significant relationships. As members' patterns of relating emerge in group, members will receive feedback that promotes insight into their patterns of relating with others, and have opportunities to practice relating in new ways with other group members. Connections groups would thus be particularly beneficial for any student who generally feels somewhat unfulfilled or dissatisfied in their relationships (such as with friends, co-workers, partners, family members, etc.)
