Anxiety and Self-Esteem Groups for Children and Teens

We are offering 3 different groups at this time, one for elementary age children, one for middle school age children, and one for high school age teens. Children and teens today experience stress and anxiety at increasing rates. This stress effects their academic success, peer relationships, family relationships, and their ability to feel joy and success in many aspects of their lives. This is an 5 week group where children and teens learn different stress reduction skills, learn about anxiety, increase self-esteem, build social skills and find support from peers who may be experiencing similar emotions and struggles.
