Group Therapy and Parenting Groups

Group therapy is both an effective way to solve problems and something your child will enjoy! Parenting groups can be a much needed chance to reboot and reenergize. We have groups for preschoolers, children, teens, parents (check out our new lunchtime parenting group!) and young adults. Dr. Rachel Singer and Ms. Marvie Corbett, Directors of Psychotherapy, coordinate our groups.

We offer Group Therapy for children/teens and Parenting Groups

Group therapy is a good choice for helping children and teens who have the following types of concerns:

  • Struggles with anxiety, frustration, or other strong feelings
  • Difficulty making or keeping friends
  • Trouble with impulse control or uncooperative behavior
  • Needs to learn to be more flexible and resilient in the face of day-to-day challenges

Group therapy helps children and teens learn new skills for coping with their daily challenges in a safe social environment. Working with other children in a group gives each child or teen the chance to see that they are not alone in their struggles. Groups also give children and teens a safe place to practice what they learn in therapy, so they can feel confident using their new skills in the ‘real world.’

Have questions? Our Directors of Psychotherapy, Dr. Rachel Singer and Ms. Marvie Corbett, take care to ensure that we understand your goals for helping your child. As part of our intake process, Dr. Singer or Ms. Corbett will match your child or teen up with just the right group.

Parenting Groups

Parenting Groups are a great way to find new ideas for raising healthy, resilient kids in these confusing times. We offer parenting groups for parents of teens and pre-teens, led by Ms. Katie Austin, Psychotherapist and Author. In fall of 2022, we also offer lunchtime parent groups as well as our new “Just Diagnosed” group for parents who want a supportive place to discuss their child’s new diagnosis with other parents. Our parenting groups teach you practical ideas for helping your pre-teen/teen stay mentally healthy and make wise choices.

Parenting during a pandemic and “echo pandemic” of mental health problems is stressful–especially if you have a child who is anxious, a stressed out teen, or a child with learning differences. Our seasoned psychotherapists have advanced training in providing therapy via tele-health as well as in person. We are providing parenting support to individuals, couples, or groups during this challenging time.
