Therapy Group for Adolescents

The focus of this group will be on the “here and now” experience of group members. It is designed to allow members to learn skills and gain insight into how they relate to others in an honest and supportive environment.

Do you have thoughts that sound like this? If so, this group could be for you.

  • I feel lonely and I wish I had people my age I could really talk to about what I’m feeling.
  • I don’t want to complain to my friends. I know they are struggling too.
  • It’s hard for me to make and keep friends.
  • I want to be able to cope better with the stress I feel.
  • It is sometimes hard for me to understand and manage my own emotions.
  • Sometimes I act impulsively and I’m not sure why or how to stop it.
  • It seems like others are doing okay during the pandemic but I really hate this.

DATE: March 30 – June 22 – 12 weekly sessions on Tuesdays

TIME: 5:15-6:15 p.m

$65/session insurance reimbursable.
