By: Ellie Kraus Upon entering the group therapy setting it is a common reaction to feel skepticism towards the effectiveness of such a practice. Over the course of my internship at Rangeview Counseling Center I have had the opportunity to observe the benefits of group therapy and the evolution of the group dynamic. From the beginning mandated therapy is often approached with doubt and a “let’s get this over with mentality.” Additionally it has been found that, “during the initial group
By Mozelle DeLong February is for lovers, or is it? Valentine’s Day brings up memories of many things – school days as a child exchanging valentines in decorative boxes, our first love, our first heartbreak, and many other experiences.

Whether your partnered or not, this “day of love” may stir up a lot for us as we search for the underlying meaning of how “love” presents itself in our lives. The whole
A Compassionate Guide to New Year’s Resolutions By Lindsey Wellmaker It’s officially 2019. The holiday celebrations have concluded –decorations are put away, loved ones have returned home, and the refrigerator is finally free of holiday leftovers.

It is a state of mind.

As an intern, I have been seeing how hard it is for people to go through the court process. Dealing with the courts and all that comes with it can seem unbearable and it's no wonder that "court ordered therapy" can have a negative connotation. However, what I have seen, is that Rangeview is trying to help clients see that it can be better than that! Court mandated clients first might find therapy to be a drag and just something they have to add to their to do list. Before coming to class,
“We're hardwired for connection. There's no arguing with the bioscience. But we can want it so badly we're trying to hot-wire it.” We all want to feel like we belong. In fact, one of the most dysregulating feelings is when you feel like the odd ball out.
