Group Therapy

Now enrolling for summer 2021 socially distant groups.

This summer we hope to hold socially distant outdoor groups. Please contact us for more information about the scheduling group.

Later Elementary School Group: Focused on helping tweens manage their social world and peer relationships by acquiring skills to adapt to their changing friendships as well as preparing for the expectations of middle school. Session topics will include emotional regulation, helping children understand their own feelings and how to handle challenging friendship moments. Organization and taking responsibility for oneself in school and social situations will also be addressed.

Transition to high school group: Helps teens traverse academic, friendship and social media/technology demands. Group will teach skills needed to manage anxiety around their increasingly demanding world and focus on skills needed to prepare them to “launch” into the real world. Group will incorporate a goal setting component and help members take control of their future.

We have a real passion for group work in our practice. Groups allow children/teens to feel a sense of acceptance and relief. Often when children/teens or struggling there is a feeling that they are alone. In a group, they can feel that they belong and that others are struggling with the same challenges. They have an opportunity to connect in a natural way with one another while developing strategies to help them moving forward.

In particular, after this year where many children and teens have been so isolated group allows an opportunity to connect with others.

Groups are ideal for:

  • Helping kids manage socialization and peer relationships.
  • Helping them understand their own feelings.
  • Helping them manage their emotions.
  • Group will help them acquire skills to adapt to their friendships.
  • Help them learn to evolve to their ever-changing world.
  • Gain self-esteem and improve friendship skills.
