GROUP THERAPY

Therapy groups are a great cost-effecteive way to get healing.  Groups generally have between 3-8 members in them, and they can really help you with accountability, support, and learning to be intimate and grow in intimate connection with other human beings.  Banyan Therapy Group is currently facilitating psychotherapy groups for sex addicts and partners of sex addicts.


12-Week “Foundations of Recovery” Group (Men)

Thursdays from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Remotely via a secure video platform

Our Foundations of Recovery Group centers on two key components: Building a solid foundation of recovery and understanding the impact of the addiction on your partner. To accomplish a recovery foundation, we will use resources such as Facing the Shadow. In addition, we will help you understand the traumatic impact of sex addiction on your partner, and how you can begin the process of relational restoration. This group builds off of material created for our Sex Addiction Foundations Intensive, helping you build a solid base of recovery and a community of support.

If you have any further questions, or to reserve your space in the group, please feel free to reach out to the group facilitator, David Boyajian, at David@BanyanTherapy.com or call (818) 435-7847 ext 24.

NEW – Partner Betrayal Trauma Support Group (Women)

Partner betrayal trauma can cause high anxiety and debilitating triggers. It can also keep you isolated from loved ones out of fear that they won’t understand. For these reasons, we’re offering a new ongoing support group for betrayed partners. This support group will provide a space to process your trauma with others who share similar experiences. This non-judgemental space will be facilitated by a therapist to assist in healing from betrayal trauma. You will also get to hear experiences of others and become a part of a community where you are not alone in your recovery. You don’t have to fight this fight alone.

This is an ongoing processing group, so we ask that you commit to three months for consistency and trust building. This group is designed to follow our 8-week partner’s group which focuses on tools to assist those in the beginning of their recovery process. It is recommended that participants are in individual therapy.
