Bloom offers various outpatient therapy groups available to both Bloom clients and individuals of all genders in the broader community.

Virtual Binge Eating Support Group

Our binge eating group is for individuals of all genders, 18 and older, struggling with binge eating behaviors and/or Binge Eating Disorder.

Through connection and fellowship, group members will receive support in exploring and processing their experiences of making peace with food in a diet-centric world as they find acceptance and healing within themselves and their bodies.

Important Group Therapy Information

All potential group members must schedule an intake and pre-group orientation at Bloom prior to beginning group services.

Most of our groups run on a seasonal schedule with new spots opening every Fall (September), Winter (January), and Summer (May). After this seasonal enrollment, our groups "close" for the next 12-week period until the next cycle of enrollment. 

Our Recovery Skills group does not run on a seasonal schedule. Rather, our Skills group is always "open" and continuously accepting new members if space is available.

The fee for each group is $50 per session. We accept BCBS and RMHP for most of our groups. Please contact us at (970) 893-7600 or info@bloomcounselingandnutrition.com for more information on fees, insurance, and enrollment.
