Upcoming Groups:

Children in Change Support Group

Change can be scary.

The decisions in family change are not made by children. Therefore, children and youth often feel powerless in the face of overwhelming changes in their lives and they often have few skills for coping with these changes.

This group will offer support for children who have experienced significant changes in their families. Group members will be encouraged to share openly about their changes and feelings while developing an understanding that they are not to blame for adult situations.

This group will guide children to cope in healthy ways while both acknowledging and teaching about feelings of grief and loss.

WHEN: Wednesdays at 5:00 pm and begins on March 17th, 2021!

COST is ONLY $379 for the first six sessions! This will be an ongoing group consisting of 12 total sessions.
