For those who are seeking personal growth and development along with deepening meaningful connections in their lives, group therapy may be the path. Over the last five years Robert has been working on a new approach to behavioral healthcare that follows where he sees medicine going with regard to the direct primary care model. The idea in direct primary care is simple: paid subscriptions create smaller caseloads and increased accessibility to care, as well as responsiveness to the immediacy of patient needs. 

Roberts approach takes elements of that into account, but aims to take things a step further. For years now we have had clear data that the greatest predictor for health outcomes throughout a person’s life has to do with the strength of their relationships. Therefore, his approach to direct primary care in a behavioral health context is to provide meaningful support and engagement within what he calls a community-based group model. In this approach to care, unlike traditional group psychotherapy, outside contact with group members is encouraged and actively facilitated.

Registration: Groups are small by design and have a very limited participant cap.


  1. Support
    When you’re dealing with something, you may think you’re the only one feeling the way you do, but when others in the group share in return, you may often realize that there are others who have gone through the same thing in the past, or who are going through it right now along with you. They are there to support you through it and let you know that you’re not alone.
  2. Understanding
    Groups give you the opportunity to speak openly and honestly about your feelings among others who understand. Sometimes, you may not feel comfortable sharing with those you’re closest to; they may not understand or empathize. In a group, it’s often the case that the other members can relate. You can share without judgement and with anonymity.
  3. Release
    It’s been said that a group is like a container, whatever you put into it, it can hold for you. Being able to verbalize certain thoughts and feelings can make them feel less powerful. It can be cathartic to release them into a safe space with no consequence or judgement.
  4. Skills
    Groups can also help improve certain important skills, like being able to cope with challenges, being able to open up about your emotions, the ability to make friends or the ability to speak in a group setting. At times, other members may share how they dealt with something, and it helps you figure out a solution to what you’re going through. Other times, from an outside perspective, they may be able to see something in your situation that you’re unable to see.
  5. Social Interaction
    Whether we’re isolated by our job, our nature or by this pandemic, human beings still crave social interaction, and being able to find it in a safe space, among others who understand, is a great way to ensure these interactions are not only meaningful, but gainful and supportive.
