A List of Online Groups for Therapists
Several therapists have reached out to me here at Group Therapy Central wanting to connect with online group services designed for therapists. I compiled the following list of Online Groups for Therapists, which contains all the people that I know are providing online groups designed for therapists.
Most of these groups are training and/or consultation groups, and many are process-oriented. A few are identified as Modern Psychoanalytic groups.
If you know of any other online groups for therapists, please let me know and I will add them to this list! Thanks!

prevent burnout and for their continued professional and
If I can influence the field, therapists should be seeing peers and talking about their issues, their patients. I am an experienced therapist, but I
am always learning from others in groups."
Attachment-Focused Somatic Experiencing Training Group
Wednesdays 1:00-2:30pm Central Time
If interested, please contact:
DESCRIPTION: Attachment-focused therapy and Somatic Experiencing (SE) are fundamental and applicable theories in psychotherapy. They honor our bodies, emotional regulation, interdependence, and well-being. They are positive, ethological, humanistic, and developmental theories.
This training group aims at fostering psychological depth and growth. By paying attention to our bodies and our emotions, the way we attach, we will notice how we bring and sustain support in our lives. We will examine our regulating strategies, improve our presence, empathic witnessing, and overall relational stance.
COST: $75 per session.
WHY JOIN A TRAINING GROUP? The art of psychotherapy is best learned by observation, imitation, inquiry, and participation. Group psychotherapy, in particular, requires the collaborative investment of the communal. All of life happens in groups! They allow the exploration of the movement from the intrapsychic to the interpersonal, the private to the public, and the cultural and systemic.
ABOUT THE LEADER:
Carlos Canales, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist, certified group psychotherapist and somatic experiencing practitioner in private practice in West Des Moines, Iowa. He is fluent in attachment, psychodynamic, gestalt, and somatic therapy.
Zoom Process Group of, by, and for East Asian American Therapists
Wednesdays 7:05-8:35pm Central
Please contact Dr. Bob at email@example.com for more information.
DESCRIPTION: Teresa Lee, MD, and Robert "Dr. Bob" Hsiung, MD, are thrilled by the growing community of East Asian American therapists. They invite you to explore the intersection of your profession, your culture, and your individuality. We're each made of experiences, thoughts, and feelings and we see our inner workings more clearly when reflected in others. Being East Asian American therapists is your common starting point. From there, connections deepen and there is personal and professional growth. What you discover in your journey together enriches all of you.
$75 ($40 for trainees) per session.
Online Process-Oriented Training Group for Therapists
I run three different process-oriented training groups for therapists, and currently they are each FULL.
I will start my fourth group once we have at least 6 members. Please complete this short application to let me know which time slot would work for you. We will then connect for a 20-30 minute Pre-Group Meeting to explore your goals and answer your questions about group.
DESCRIPTION: Group Members are mental health clinicians that want an ongoing process group experience. We meet virtually twice a month for 90 minutes.
It is not a therapy group, yet the boundaries /norms of confidentiality are observed and members may bring into the group anything that is meaningful to their experience as a therapist and as a human being.
It is a relational process group in its truest sense. We continually activate, illuminate, and process the here-and-now dynamics of our relationships together. The content of the group is driven by group members wants/needs.
Themes surrounding attachment styles, relationship concerns, burnout/compassion fatigue, finances and money management/mindsets, impostor syndrome, and other issues related to being a clinician are common...but that is just the beginning of where this group can go. The group may also decide to create space for consultation and masterminding work as needed.
The goal of the group is to immerse ourselves in a process experience while also being able to reflect on this experience in a way that is meaningful to professional development as therapists. This group is similar to an institute experience at an AGPA or affiliate society conference, but it will be ongoing.
The structure of the group is 75 minutes of group processing and then 15 minutes of debrief/didactic. We intend to meet up in-person once or twice per calendar year for a full day or two of group processing, but that has proven difficult with the current COVID-19 concerns. There is no official commitment to a certain number of sessions, but most group members expect to spend 6-18 months in the group.
Full pay fee: $100/session ($200/month). Many group members opt to use professional development funding to cover costs. Sliding scale options available.
An important component of this group is processing feelings and mindsets regarding payment for group therapy services. We will work within our group to appropriately attend to each member's personal and professional financial needs and goals.

Online Process-oriented Training Group for Therapists
Thursday Mornings 10:15-11:45am (Pacific Time)
Please call or email me with questions or to schedule an initial session. Phone: 530-757-6861 Email: email@example.com Website: sacpsy.com
My training group for therapists will meet online using a HIPAA compliant version of Zoom. Although this is not a therapy group and members are not considered patients, the usual standards of confidentiality are expected and members are free to bring in whatever content they wish. The main goals of the group are to use the group process to explore and understand one's intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships and to learn about group dynamics and both the leader and member roles. I work within a psychodynamic and relational approach so that issues and topics depend on what members bring to the group rather than being initiated or structured by me.
I meet individually with the potential member once or twice to get acquainted and discuss the fit with the group Once the group begins it will be open-ended starting with each member committing to a trial period of 12 weeks and to a termination process when they are ready to leave the group. It will be a long-term, slow-open group so members will be added as there are openings available up to a maximum of 10. The possibility of in-person weekend institutes may be explored once the COVID-19 pandemic resolves.
As far as my qualifications go, I have more than 35 years of experience in conducting groups and I train and supervise group therapists in the US and abroad. I'm also active in group psychotherapy associations at the local, national, and international levels and am a Certified Group Psychotherapist and Life Fellow of AGPA. I have led a training process group for psychiatrists in training at UC Davis since 1999 and numerous institutes at AGPA conferences and elsewhere.
