High School Girls' Group

Confidence * Communication * Connection

Designed with teenage girls ages 14-18 in mind, this 6 week  program provides young women with a safe, supportive environment to explore their hopes, doubts, dreams and fears under the guidance of an experienced therapist.

The Benefits of the Group Experience

Unlike individual therapy, this group experience gives young women the opportunity to share their experiences, give advice, learn new skills, receive support and most importantly feel a sense of community and belonging.

How Can Girls' Group Help Your Teen?

The Girls' Group combines the best elements of group therapy with an age-appropriate curriculum that teaches young women critical skills in communication, self-reflection and conflict resolution leading to improved self-esteem!

IMPROVED BODY IMAGE Understand the influences that affect how you see your body. Learn how to give and accept compliments, focus on what you love about yourself and let go of unrealistic media expectations.

MORE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION Identify your communication style and personal approach to conflict.  Learn to be assertive and ask for what you need without being aggressive.  Practice fair-fighting rules to resolve conflict in healthy ways.

HEALTHIER BOUNDARIES Stop letting friends walk all over you.  Learn to identify your values and present yourself in a way that attracts quality friends.

END NEGATIVE BELIEF PATTERNS Understand the power that beliefs and expectations have over your attitudes and behavior.  Identify the beliefs that bring you down and start challenging your own negative thoughts.

STRONGER CONNECTIONS Learn from other girls that you are not alone in your struggles.  Give advice, ask for feedback and receive support from girls who understand how you're feeling.

GAIN CONFIDENCE Every topic and every skill is aimed at helping you improve your self-esteem and feel empowered to live your life with confidence.
