Group counseling can be a powerful way of working on issues at any age. But it is especially so during adolescence and young adulthood, when social relationships take on enlarged importance. Yet, the skills to relate effectively are still developing, presenting challenges to forming and maintaining friendships. Group counseling offers an opportunity to work on relationship skills with other group members, while also providing a support system to sustain life's challenges.

Open-ended, relational therapy groups to help members connect with each other and communicate more honestly.

This leads to a stronger sense of identity, greater social confidence and an increased feeling of belonging in the world, which can have positive effects on many areas of life. Groups have 5-7 members and are separated into 7th-9th and 10th-12th grades. Groups meet for one hour per week and cost $50. Reduced fees are available.
