What is your Superpower?

Our group therapy sessions for adults with disabilities will focus on specific issues that every adult must learn to personally manage. We will address these issues through the unique lens of adults with disabilities. We will cover the specific topics of safety, dating, household chores and self-care, school and hobbies, relationships with parents and caretakers, and holiday stressors and celebrations. Sessions will include sharing our experiences, education, coping skills, role play, and reflection. As our final session will take place December 9th, we will have a holiday party of our own. We will reflect on the previous year and our experiences in group therapy and make personalized plans for the year to come! Our group will meet for 5 sessions spread over the course of 5 weeks. Sessions take place every Saturday starting November 11th. Each session will run from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. Payment per session is $50 or use of insurance. It is our intention to provide those that attend the skills and confidence they need to better navigate the world around them, and perhaps, make a few friends along the way. The group will be run by Rachel Garcia and Hillary Ray, both of whom are interns at Olive Branch that are pursuing their master’s degrees in clinical mental health counseling at Trinity Christian College. Rachel Garcia’s background as a registered behavioral therapist will provide an essential perspective into the challenges that our clients may face.  Hillary Ray’s experience of growing up with two younger brothers on the autistic spectrum offers necessary insight and awareness for the individual needs of our clients. 

 RSVP by Nov. 6th. Please text or call Hillary (312) 620-8154 or Rachel (708) 620-2419

What to Expect

You can expect to be treated with dignity and respect in our office. Everyone has a unique story to tell. At Olive Branch your story will be honored. One quality that our therapists have in common is their ability to be attentive, empathic listeners. Your initial session will include gathering some information about your personal history and your current reasons for coming into the office. You will be asked to fill out the appropriate forms if you would like us to file with your insurance company for payment. We provide this service at no charge to our clients. If you do not have insurance or if we do not currently accept your insurance, we will work hard to offer you our services at a rate you can afford using a sliding scale. After the initial information gathering is completed, you and your therapist will discuss a diagnosis, if you like, and your therapist will outline a course of treatment that is acceptable to you both. If you think it is time for you to schedule an appointment, please telephone the office (708) 633-8000. Many people say they feel better just by making the call!

To make an appointment or to ask for more information, please call (708) 633-8000.
