This is a weekly, ongoing group for teens who want a safe and affirming space to explore who they are and build connections without the fear of being judged or rejected because of their gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. This group will provide group members with the experience of identity development and healing through an inclusive and accepting community.

Using The Body Image Workbook for Teens by Julia V. Taylor, the group will focus on helping teenage girls build self-esteem and develop healthy coping strategies when faced with negative body messages. This group will address negative self-talk/cognitive distortions, social media, nutrition/health and celebrating different body types.
This group will be led by Wise Family clinician, Rebecca Staines.
Many teens do not have the skills needed to cope with this unprecedented time. Group therapy is a great source of support and growth for teens. The Virtual Teen Talk Support Group is designed to educate and support teens as they navigate this time of uncertainty to make daily living more manageable.
The group meets virtually on Tuesdays 3:30-4:30 pm. 9th-12th grade boys and girls are welcome to join. Teens can join the group after each participant or parent completes the registration form and speaks with a group facilitator. Once joining Teen Talk, each teen must commit to attend for a minimum of six weeks as regular attendance is necessary for the group to be successful. Participants can pay per session ($70 each) or for a 6-week group session package ($397 for package of 6).
This group will be facilitated by Wise Family clinician Whitney Taylor.
Cost for this group is $70 per session. A 6-week group session package may also be purchased for $397.
