Group Therapy


Sexual Abuse Survivors Group

Elise Carlson, LPC is forming a group for women who have experienced sexual abuse and are having difficulty coping with this trauma. Elise has years of experience working with sexual abuse survivors in individual and group settings, as well as through volunteer work in the community.

The focus of the group will be to educate the women on various matters related to sexual abuse, assist and support them in overcoming the shame and guilt often associated with sexual abuse, and to empower each woman to reclaim a sense of power and control in her life.  

The group will take place weekly on Saturday mornings at Perimeter Therapy Associates in Dunwoody, across from Perimeter Mall. A new group will begin upon receiving an appropriate number of referrals, and will run for 10 consecutive weeks. It will be important for each participant to commit to attending on a weekly basis. In addition, due to the sensitive nature, it will be a closed group and no new clients will be allowed to join the group after the 2nd week.  

Elise is now taking referrals for the group. An intake session will be required to ensure each woman is a good fit for the group. Clients are welcome to use insurance for the intake session and any additional individual sessions; however, insurance is not accepted for group sessions and the rate is $65 per session.

For more information or to schedule an intake, clients can call  678-666-4717 x101.
