Originally formed during the pandemic as an emotional safe haven, the newly redefined Emotional Empowerment Support Group is designed to provide support to individuals experiencing phase of life issues (isolation, ‘stuckness’, etc.) or are simply in need of emotional reinforcement. This group encourages members to examine existential themes, explore self-identity, and foster supportive relationships to help overcome life’s obstacles. The group is built on inclusivity, and welcomes individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and identities. The group meets virtually every Wednesday from 5:00pm - 6:20pm and is free of charge community service.
Maple Counseling's Group Therapy Program offers ongoing groups that provide personal growth, support, healing, and increased knowledge of self and others. Therapy groups offer a safe space to discuss thoughts, feelings, and life events, and talk about issues that you may not be able to talk about elsewhere.
Some people choose to join a therapy group in addition to individual therapy, and others may wish to try group therapy as a stand-alone treatment.
If you are interested in joining a therapy group, please call Maple Counseling's' group information line; 310-271-9999, x5. One of our group therapists will call you back to schedule an intake session, and answer any questions you have about group therapy and which group may be best for you.
All groups are moderated by two experienced interns.
Heal old wounds, resolve old issues, and improve current relationships through the understanding and resolution of early life experiences, and talk about and deal with difficult existential issues such as death, loss, living a meaningful life.

LGBTQ+ -affirming group that provides a nonjudgmental, self-reflective, community-building atmosphere for persons identifying as queer, non-binary, trans, bisexual, lesbian, and gay. This group explores gender identity, sexual orientation, self-acceptance, internalized homonegativity, relationships, and vulnerabilities.

This group aims to provide BIPOC-identifying individuals a space to explore and share experiences related to identity, relationships, and intersectionality with significant emphasis placed on personal and relational growth. Led by two non-white individuals, the group is reserved only for those who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Color, though we take into consideration the many complexities and nuances surrounding race-based identification. While safety is a foundational pillar of the group, there will undoubtedly be moments of discomfort. Rather than shy away from these moments, we encourage group participants to embrace the unpleasant feelings, and bring them back to the group. This is not an advocacy group, though issues surrounding advocacy and social justice may come up. We encourage those with questions to reach out for further information.
Meets every Monday at 6:20pm
Our services are all provided by counselors working towards licensure in the State of California under supervision of highly-experienced licensed clinicians.
