peer groups

There is a unique healing power that comes from being seen and known in a supportive community. This is as true for children and adolescents as it is for adults.  

Our Peer Groups offer just that opportunity! 

Peer Groups are a gentle way to enter the therapeutic process by connecting with others in similar life stages.  While providing a place of hope and healing they also improve social, emotional, and relational well-being, and teach coping skills and strategies to help manage the demands of daily life. Our peer groups offer our families a budget-friendly tool to get access to high quality care. Not only are they an integral part of a whole child support plan, they serve as a gradual on and off ramp for individual counseling.

Through storytelling, peer interactions, and expressive art activities, we will reflect on the adoption journey and all kinds of families. Moreover, each participant will be able to connect with peers who experience similar challenges, and learn to express and manage emotions in healthy ways.
