About GroupWorks

The aim of GroupWorks is to provide participants with a supportive, often fun, and thoroughly engaging group experience to assist them in overcoming conflicts in their lives, to help them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and others, and to facilitate relating to other people in a more satisfying way.

Group members are interviewed individually prior to membership in a group to help create a group experience that is optimal for all participants.

Groups are facilitated or supervised by Ilene English, a seasoned group leader and mental health professional, trained in the field of psychotherapy, and licensed by the State of California as Marriage and Family Therapist.  Ilene’s skills as a group leader helps to create a feeling of safety, a strong ethic of confidentiality, and a sense of connectedness among participants in her groups.
