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.
Together We Grow (6-8 yr olds)
Focus on building social skills while practicing emotional regulation.
5 sessions on Tuesdays $125
5:00 PM-6:00 PM
Lead by: Stela Sinanaj EdS/MS, NCC & Sara Seto
In this group, children will become more aware of their thoughts and feelings while learning practical ways to manage them effectively. Together we will focus on building social skills while practicing emotion regulation. Through a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and expressive arts therapy, children will learn emotional regulation skills to address anxiety and anger in healthier ways.
Explore to Know More (9-11 yr olds)
Deepen a sense of self and increase emotional regulation skills through sensory engagement and expressive art therapy.
4 sessions on Wednesdays $100
5:00 PM-6:00 PM
Lead by: Jill Stockburger MC, MA & Eddie Johnson
Expressive arts therapy allows children the opportunity to engage with regulation skills, develop social skills, explore problem solving skills, and deepen a sense of self all through imaginative play and creative self expression. With full sensory-engagement throughout our four sessions, the art modalities of movement, music, and visual art will be explored (a different visual art medium used in each session). Each week we will provide a summary of our sessions and skills to engage with at home.
