OUTPATIENT GROUPS

In response to COVID-19, Ryther has developed several virtual groups to help keep kids busy and regulated during this tough time. We have also moved our Parent and Caregiver Support Groups online. Please note that all groups require access to a laptop or smartphone capable of video chat (laptops are preferable if available). To sign up for a group, please fill out the form below. These groups are open to all Ryther clients and are run through primary insurance. For clients without insurance, out of pocket cost is $75/session. Co-pay may apply. Interested in signing up for a group but not a current Ryther client? Get started here.
