Is your child worried? Do you want to support them but are nervous about where to begin? Would your child benefit from knowing they aren’t the only kid who feels this way? Join us for a strength-based group to give tools to both you and your child!!
This book club is for anxious kids ages 7-9 (or close to that.) We will use one of Karen Young’s books “Hey Warrior” or “Hey Awesome” to learn more about physical symptoms of anxiety in our body and how to manage them. Each individually tailored group will explore play based therapy techniques to learn coping strategies, calming techniques and mindfulness. Anxiety can present as worrying, anger, distraction and can often feel very lonely. Kid groups help us all learn that we belong!
This group will be offered again in early 2022. Email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to register your child or ask questions! $320 group fee due upon registration and includes the book. In the meantime we are offering an in-person anxiety group for boys, see below:
***Anxiety group for Boys

Did you know girls start to lose confidence starting at age 8? Katy Kay and Claire Shipman wrote an amazing book for women, then adapted it for girls. “The Confidence Code for Girls” is full of information and life lessons we can all benefit from. This small group is for girls in grades 3&4 and 5&6 to build a strong bond with others, look deep inside and understand our strengths, and give girls the tools to thrive with friends, family and in life.
Once girls complete this group, they are invited to a free MONTHLY group to reconnect and have fun. The Wonder Girl community is strong and supportive, what every young lady needs!
Does you daughter miss attending her Wonder Girl group? Join us for an ongoing Wonder Girl Beyond group. WGB meets weekly and supports the ideas that we are all capable, assertive, and supportive. This group is currently virtual and will begin to meet in-person as participants are vaccinated against COVID-19.
NEXT GROUP runs SUNDAYS from 11/7-12/12/2021 5pm-5:50pm and will be IN PERSON. Email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to register your daughter. $375 covers group registration, book and journal!
LGBTQ+ youth are at an increased risk of bullying, self-harm, and suicide. Our job as parents is to ensure that our children are supported where they are. There are so many social constructs that can leave us unsure of exactly how to BEST support our kids. One thing we CAN do is to encourage them to share feelings with others in a supportive and constructive environment.
Does your child identify with the LGBTQ+ community? Are you looking for a place to support them in their gender/sexuality journey? Join others who are looking for a similar group, in a safe place to share thoughts and feelings. Everyone deserves to feel safe and accepted!
Join us on Wednesdays at 6pm in-person at our Del Ray office right above Pork Barrel BBQ and next to The Dairy Godmother! Pre-screening is necessary, email email@example.com to set up a 15 minute phone call to be screened for group admittance. COVID-19 precautions will be in place.
If you are a parent of an LGBTQ+ youth and are looking for resources as a parent, please see the support groups below.
