We are excited to offer our Calm Kids summer workshop series for Kindergarten to 2nd Graders this coming  June! Our Calm Kids workshop is designed to encourage and foster connection between peers to build on the opportunity to discuss feelings, thoughts and social connections in a safe and community based environment. The outcomes are increasing competencies in coping and communication strategies and providing tools for greater confidence, self awareness and social constructs. This would be a perfect workshop for existing child clients already participating in individual therapy or those with children that struggle with confidence, self awareness and social skills and connections.

The group will be facilitated by therapist, Kendall (KJ) Banks, and a co-facilitator, Jill Mudge, who will be acutely aware and responsive to the needs of individual clients in the group.

Workshop size is limited, and students require pre-screening to participate. 

Cost: $30 per 1 hr session to attend; or $220 for the Entire 8 Week Series

Grief Support Group

Emotional support group for women and men experiencing the loss of a loved one. The group will use Worden’s 4 Tasks of Mourning as a framework.

Women in Transition

This group offers support and encouragement for women who are re-creating their lives after significant change. Changes may be from the end of a relationship, career, parenting role, recovery, relocation, etc. This forward-looking group will focus on self-discovery, resilience and new possibilities as you forge a new path for your life. As George Eliot said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”

Active Parenting of Teens and Children

parenting mental health groups

Parenting teens and tweens can be the Best of times and the Worst of times. In this class you will learn what’s going on in your teen’s head, which will help you figure out why they do the things they do. You’ll learn how to open up lines of communication, encourage cooperation and responsibility, and discipline effectively. We will also explore techniques for solving the inevitable problems that crop up. The skills you learn in this class will give you more confidence and courage to meet the challenges, and savor the joys, or your children’s teen years.
