New Teen Process Group in Cedar Park

We are accepting referrals for a new small group beginning March 23, 2022.

Where: Nurture Family Counseling 201 S. Lakeline Blvd, Suite 602 Cedar Park TX 78613

Cost: $55 per group meeting

When: 9 Weekly Meetings on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30p

First meeting March 23 – last Spring meeting on May 18th

Ages: 13-16

All genders welcome

Teens who are the best fit for this group:

  • Also do or have done individual therapy
  • Are willing to talk about mental health
  • Had or have tough family relationships
  • Struggle with understanding themselves or their mood
  • Want to meet 3-6 new people in a place where judgments aren’t allowed
  • Can try to be silly or creative together

Group therapy can be an authentic, nonjudgmental place to go deeper than general advice from friends and the internet. Let’s break down barriers of judgment, shame and guilt together to improve communication, acknowledge needs and appreciate strengths. Expressive art and games allow teens to playfully problem solve. I also aim to give the teens some choices about how we use the group time.

Recently, the need for mental health services has increased beyond what I believe the supply of individual therapy can meet. I’m passionate about effectively helping more people through groups. I have facilitated therapy groups for children, teens and adults as a student intern and also since 2017 as a licensed counselor. I’ve done this in so many settings: outdoors, with whole families, at grief camp, around a circle in a traditional office and yes, of course, online.

This group plans to meet in-person and participants will be asked to wear masks if they’re feeling under the weather. A graduate student intern will co-facilitate under supervision.

Give me a call or email if your teen is curious about joining us. We will set an intake appointment (virtual or face-to-face) to complete paperwork and answer your questions.
