High School is Hard: Group Therapy for Teens

This is a 5 week, 10 session, virtual series for high-schoolers to better understand how to manage anxiety, depression, and all that life throws at them! This will be led by Julia and Brooke!

Group Overview:

High school is hard, making every changing expectation even more difficult!  They are wondering if school is going to be online or in-person, if they’re going to be safe at school and if they can get through the day with a mask on. These stressors can make a difficult time of life even more difficult. This group is designed to help high-schoolers increase their awareness, provide tools to help manage all of these transitions, and feel overall happier! 

Is this Group right for my teen?

  • Is your teen struggling with sadness?
  • Is your teen feeling overwhelmed?
  • Is your teen interested in knowing more about how to manage their emotions during this stressful time?
  • Is your teen more irritable than normal?
  • Has your teen lost interest in things that once was their favorite thing to do?
  • Is your teen struggling with anxiety and/or depression?

How can this group help?

This group provides tools based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to increase understanding and provide coping skills in managing anxiety and depression. During our time together, we will help the teens to understand what anxiety and depression is, how to recognize it in themselves, and give them tools to help them manage their emotions during this difficult time of their lives.
