Teen & Adolescent Group Counseling

In-Person Or Online Therapy

Establishing trust & safety

Our therapists employ a variety of strategies to connect with teenagers to help them feel secure and trusted. These skills utilize a variety of methods of communication including verbal, nonverbal, art, music, writing, and social media. The therapist ensures the group members feel safe, heard, comfortable, and engaged. Parents, teachers, school counselors, spiritual leaders, friends, coaches, etc. are encouraged to recommend teens to the support group.
