Groups for Kids

  • Anxious, Excessively Worried or Feeling Panic?
    This group will help children and adolescents identify their fears and understand how to manage their anxiety. Your child will learn tools and techniques to alter his/her behavior or change the thoughts and reactions to situations that trigger anxiety.
  • Are Your Parents Separated or Getting a Divorce?
