(Courtesy of JFS MetroWest) Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ is pleased to offer a variety of support groups this spring, both virtually and in person. Support groups provide an opportunity for people with similar personal experiences to express feelings and share coping strategies with professional guidance.

Groups are valuable as they provide individuals with a common need, concern or experience a place to share and support each other under the guidance and skill of an experienced, empathetic, licensed professional therapist. Groups can be effectively utilized in addition to other counseling services or independently. JFS offers group counseling and support groups in the JFS offices as well as in community venues, including local synagogues and schools.
