Super Powered: Support Group for Anxious Children

Anxious feelings can be overwhelming and paralyzing at times. Based on the book by Renee Jain (founder of GoZen!) and Dr. Shefalie Tsabary, Super Powered helps to transform anxiety into courage, confidence and resilience.

Your child will connect with others who experience similar feelings and how we can all manage them to be our best. This 8 week group meets over two months in order to help us learn and implement new ideas.

Upcoming Dates: Nov. 18th, 2020 through Jan. 20th, 2020

Time: 4:00pm – 5:00pm on Wednesdays for 8 weeks

Hygge Time

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah) is a Danish word used when acknowledging “a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.” Spend this hour learning how to be mindful, practicing meditation and learning some yoga.  Learn how to make your own space relaxing and calming using materials already in your home.  Teaching children that they are in control of their space and energy can help at a multitude of ages. Invite a friend and let’s get hygge together!

Contact us for information for the next session! Coming soon.

Cost for this group for each participant is $150
