Teen Girls Group
“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.”Jim Stovall
TEEN GIRLS THERAPY GROUP AT A GLANCE
This group provides a safe, supportive community where teen girls can feel comfortable sharing their experiences, create healthy connections, and learn the skills they need to feel great about themselves so they can live healthy, meaningful lives. Teen girls struggling with depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem can benefit from Teen Girl Therapy Group. To the outward world, these girls look like they have it all going on. They get good grades, work hard, and are genuinely good kids. However, inside they feel disconnected, disengaged, and dissatisfied. They may have trouble expressing themselves or being assertive for fear of disappointing others. They may talk about not liking, or even hating themselves, as they try to keep up appearances of perfection. It can all feel so overwhelming!
If your teen is violent, engaging in problematic sexual behaviors, or actively abusing drugs or alcohol, they may need specialized treatment or individual counseling to work on some of these concerns before considering joining a group therapy.

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”Amy Poehler
