Confidence — That tricky life skill that is built over time and with experience. The belief in one’s ability to succeed is an essential contributor to success for youngsters and for adults! Too much confidence can convey a cocky persona… and too little confidence prevents one from seizing opportunities. Maintaining a healthy balance of confidence is key to life and future successes.
Good social skills are the key to unlocking your child’s full potential… at school, at home and with friends.
Do you feel your child or teen lacks confidence in making friends and managing anger? Or are you a parent of a teenage daughter looking for additional support for your teen? The Wise Family has some exciting news! We are pleased to offer two 6-week social skills groups, led by our experienced therapists, Amanda Beyland and Dominique Adkins, who will guide kids and teens through hands-on skill building activities to boost confidence, improve self-control, manage anxious feelings, and enhance social skills.
Want to know more? Here’s more information on what to expect in each group:
A support group designed for rising 1st – 3rd graders with a focus on how to manage anger and resolve conflict at home and at school. Kids will learn how to deal with social stress and cope with anxious feelings that may be triggered in a stressful situation. Your child will also learn how to create healthy friendships, build self-confidence in social situations and identify their unique anxiety and anger triggers while building skills to manage all of their feelings in an effective way.
What to expect:
● This group is perfect for kids who have excessive worry, difficulty making or keeping friends, social phobias, shyness, disruptive outbursts, or poor impulse control.
● Our groups are kept small to provide kids with a safe environment and plenty of individual attention to increase confidence and practice skills.
● Parents will get resources to take home to help your child make the most of what they’re learning in this group.

She has been a tremendous help with family issues and getting our children organized for success in life. Highly recommend her.— Mom of three young adults ages 20 – 24
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
