Children and teens today are facing more and more pressure to conform and are constantly facing identity issues as the world wants to tell them who they are. Oftentimes, the saying is true, it really does take a village to raise a child. We are passionate about seeing young people empowered to walk forward in healing and strength as they face the many challenges life holds. In situations of divorce, loss or life changes, children and teens can suffer the most as they seek stability and safety. Sessions for children and teens are approximately 60 minutes are tailored in many ways to fit your child’s needs. We have experience in working with attention and behavior disorders, physical and sexual abuse victims, identity issues, grief, self-harming, eating disorders and other struggles facing young people today. We would be honored to come alongside your family as you walk through difficulty.

Leadership 101: Girls who Lead, Follow
This is a four or eight week educational counseling group for girls which meets once per week for ninety minutes. The group’s focus is on leadership development and contains ten tenants of character development through counselor-facilitated peer interaction.

The goal of the group is to develop thought-provoking discussions surrounding what makes someone a leader and how each group member has innate qualities that make them leaders among their peers. This positive sense of self serves as a foundation on which to build character that exemplifies the One we follow, Jesus Christ. The group has a Christian world-view and incorporates Biblical principles such as; humility, grace, kindness, self-control and a love for the Lord as we find our true selves in Him. Topics include; values, learning from the past, practicing grace, making healthy connections, confidence-building, and respect.
