18+ Skills Support Group

Created by: Krista Mueller, LPC, NCC

When thinking about wants in life, most of us would say at some point that we desire to be a part of something. Think about it. Wouldn’t it be nice to be part of a space where you can relate to others and they can relate to you? Do yourself a favor then and take a peek at the Stronger Together group!  

About the Group: 

Stronger Together is a support group for individuals 18+ of any gender identity that offers peer and clinician support, as well as shares skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). This group demonstrates a safe, warm, inviting, and non-judgmental environment with other individuals trying to accomplish similar goals to you, or just explore themselves.  

There are two Stronger Together groups offered: 

Saturdays at 10am in the Lake in the Hills location, or virtual may be an option.  

Wednesdays at 6pm in the Collinsville location, or virtual may be an option.    

~Typically, you do meet for an intake session one on one with the leading clinician first~ 

Why Should I Join? 

If you are in your own individual therapy or have been in the past, the group is a fantastic way to practice and implement skills you may be working on or have learned.  

If you have never been in therapy before, but wish to be, this may be a great entry point. A group environment can be a gateway to individual therapy by starting with a group environment that may seem like a less intimidating start.  

If you have never been in therapy and/or are not willing to it currently, the group setting is freer and more open. You may talk amongst peers experiencing similar things to you, rather than one on one with a clinician.  

Whether you have experience in any type of therapy or not, this group is highly recommended for adults to socialize with others at a similar point in life as you, share experiences, learn skills to strengthen emotion regulation, create relationships, identify & manage stress & triggers, develop coping skills for various areas of life, & overall improve your well-being. 

You do not have to go through life alone. Join the Stronger Together team to feel & offer the support that is well-needed & deserved in life.
