Anyone between the ages of 11 and 15 years old who may be feeling stress, anxiety, disconnection due to Covid, or feelings of isolation. This group is also ideal for teens who want to improve their social skills, have a need for belonging, need help managing emotions, and/or want to improve focus and attention.

How can group therapy be as effective as individual therapy?

There are many ways in which group therapy can be just as effective, if not more than individual therapy. Group therapy creates a community of like-minded people who can not only support you but also hold you accountable for skills you are supposed to be learning and practicing. Groups also create a safe space for you to speak, listen, ask questions, and fine-tune the skills you will use in the real world. Additionally, group therapy offers the element of relatability and representation, as you are sitting side by side with actual people who have the same struggles as you.

What are the benefits of Mindfulness?
