Ryther offers several virtual and in person groups to supplement our client's therapy services. Groups are an excellent way for youth to put the skills they have learned in therapy into practice and for parents to receive support from other parents in similar situations.

To sign up for a group, please fill out the form below. These groups are open to Ryther clients and will be billed to client insurance unless not covered. 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.

Thank you for signing up for an outpatient group!


Peer services are currently available to clients with a Medicaid benefit as their primary insurance. The peer role is to support youth or parent needs and goals by providing a strength-based approach to empower clients to improve their lives and gain tools to maintain or improve emotional wellness. Peer partners have lived experience and have dealt with barriers to mental wellness in their past which allows them to understand the youth and/or parents perspective in a different way than a therapist might.  Peers can assist clients in tasks they may struggle in, participate in activities that are soothing/interesting to them, help reach goals that the client might have for themselves, or even just being someone in their corner that they feel comfortable venting to when times get rough! Peers can meet in person or virtually.


Thank you for signing up for Peer Services!
