Why Teen Support Group?
Teens are in a developmental stage where spending time with each other becomes a priority. As a therapist, I build on that desire to be among peers by creating a safe space for teen girls to come together, be vulnerable and explore how to take off their masks. What happens in support groups can often supercharge teen girl’s personal growth and healing.
Whether your daughter has ever been in individual or family counseling or has never set foot into a counseling room before, this can be a great way for her to explore big feelings, challenging relationships, and life struggles in a safe and creative environment.
Who Is This Group For?
This teen support group is a for a girl who wants to:
- learn to kick the inner-critic to the curb
- beat self-sabotage
- shift out of self-criticism and perfectionism to fostering self-compassion
- explore how to fully love and accept herself for who she was made to be
- find accountability among healthy peers and adults
What Will Happen During Teen Support Group?
There definitely be some talking, encouragement, and support!
In each group, the girls will also explore difficult feelings and life challenges with creativity.
Sometimes words alone are not enough for your daughter to express her emotions and thoughts. When we use music, painting, sand-tray play, and imagery in our therapy group, it activates your teen’s nonverbal manner of thinking. This allows your daughter to express perceptions, emotions and conflicts about which she may not be able to talk.
New solutions emerge through the use of these expressive arts in therapy. This allows for letting go of painful feelings in a safe and unique way.
