With children under 9 years old, I primarily use play therapy techniques. Play therapy gives children the opportunity to express their innermost emotions, fears, and thoughts by utilizing their most familiar language, play! Often times children do not have the verbal language to communicate in words what is happening in their worlds, this is why play is so important in the therapeutic process. My work focuses around increasing children's ability to utilize coping skills to deal with life challenges while boosting resiliency and confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Can my Teen Expect from Group?

This group is perfect for the high school girl in your life that might struggle anxiety and stress related to home, school, and friendships. Topics of discussion will also include self-confidence, maintaining healthy boundaries, and coping skills for dealing with anxiety as a teen.

Each group will focus on a topic important to the teen life as connected to building resilience for anxiety (friendships, social media awareness, etc.) Girls can expect a balanced mix of girl talk and skill building. 

Where will Group Be held?

Due to recent developments of COVID-19 this group will now be held online. Teens will need access to a private room and a video friendly device at the time of group each week.

Who Will Be Leading Group?

Courtney is the facilitator for this group. She is a practicing licensed mental health therapist in the community that enjoys working with teens. She is super excited to offer this group to the community!

Group vs Individual 

Counseling

We love groups. Why? Because developmentally, teens yearn for peer connection and belonging. Courtney creates a safe space for girls to explore their thoughts and emotions while learning lifelong interpersonal and coping skills. 

Why else do we love groups?

Groups make support for teens more accessible by reducing the weekly cost. The average individual counseling session is about $140.00/weekly. Groups provide the opportunity for peer connection with the added bonus of an awesome counselor, for less than HALF the price of individual therapy. It is also important to note that a skills based group does not take the place of individual counseling if that level of support is needed by your teen. 

What do I get for my investment?

Group dues ($250) include all 4 weeks of sessions + a one on one "meet and greet" with the facilitator to make sure this is the right group for your teen. This breaks down to only $50 per group versus the average $140 for individual counseling!
