Groups

Participating in a group is a great way to learn foundational skills as well as specific skill sets. Each group member shares at their own pace and level of comfortability. Sharing “your story” with the group is not required in order to participate. Group participation can be coupled with individual sessions to enhance and further your therapeutic goals and experience.

Groups we offer throughout the year:

  • Sand Play Groups for Youth
    • Sand Play is a non-verbal therapeutic intervention designed to help kids address specific intrapersonal concerns, learn important skills of socialization, and develop a caring community. With the use of Sand Trays and miniatures, children work together to create collective trays or “worlds” while addressing social and emotional issues.

  • Anxiety Group for Children
    • A 10-week group that teaches children skills to manage and reduce their anxiety and fears. Based on a Cognitive Behavioral model, each week, children will learn different coping skills to build an effective “tool box” while also benefiting from the support of peers and reducing feelings of isolation that often accompany children with anxiety

  • Self-Esteem Group for Pre-Teen Girls
    • The tween years can be a challenging time where we often see self esteem significantly drop. This group focuses on skills and techniques to build healthy self-esteem, as well as create a safe and supportive environment for girls to share and process through emotions.
