WHAT TO EXPECT
The Empowering Adolescence for Girls Group provides a comprehensive experience, enabling preteen girls to grasp and manage emotions effectively, build resilience, navigate social and academic landscapes, and discover their identity. Simultaneously, parents and caregivers gain strategies to bolster their preteen's emotional coping mechanisms and foster a supportive environment.
We meet individually with each participant prior to the start of the group to determine if they are the right fit and to identify specific areas of concern. In addition to group-focused activities, we are able to provide individualized interventions tailored to the specific needs of each preteen.
If a preteen cannot attend and we are notified at least 7 days prior to the start date of the program we will issue a refund, excluding a $50 non-refundable deposit for administrative fees. At the time of registration full payment is required to reserve a space. If less than 7 days notification is given, no refund will be provided.
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
During the scheduling process, we will ask questions to match you with the therapist who will best meet your needs including service type, emotional symptoms and availability.
