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.

Empowering teen girls through life’s challenges
6 sessions on Thursdays $175

The teen years can present a lot of challenges for young girls.
