We are excited to offer two six-week workshops coming late-September. Our Neuro-IMPROVing Social Skills Group Workshop reduces stress, amplifies self-confidence, strengthens comfort with the unknown and increases overall well-being. This workshop is based off of the Neuroscience of Improv, and its impact on the brain, self-awareness, self-acceptance and connections. It is designed to be fun, engaging and provides a path of minimal resistance in connecting with others in unconventional ways!
We are using this empirically supported modality to provide support for middle school and high school students to increase their social skills and reduce social anxiety.
Workshop size is limited, and students require pre-screening to participate.
Cost: $50 per week to attend

John Wightkin from Little Friends will be assisting with group facilitation.
This workshop is provided for kids aged 4-6 years old (with a second group for 7-10). The group is focused on your child learning age appropriate social skills and practice using them in a group setting. The group will explore topics using a variety of expressive and verbal communication mediums, and will be process oriented in learning appropriate social skills as well as learning to build appropriate new connections. (Maximum 6)
The group will be facilitated by Bailey Behrman, MSW, LCSW. We will use concepts from social thinking to teach new skills and practice them using role playing, games and more! Support and guidance will be provided throughout the 6 weeks so that concepts can continue to be encouraged and promoted at home.

Teen Wellness Workshop
This 6-week workshop provides teens with psychoeducation on coping with stress, depression and social anxiety, while building stronger support through communication, boundary setting and skill building.
You will learn more about the brain and our body’s response to social stressors and pressure, how to formulate language to more effectively communicate feelings of anxiety and techniques to manage and decrease persistent anxiety and depression
The group will be led by Molly Lown, will use techniques from Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. We will take a Strengths Based Perspective approach while incorporating mindfulness in order to build and practice better anxiety management.
Prior to joining the group, Molly will meet individually to discuss your personal concerns and goals, to determine if this group will best meet your needs.
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 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.
