Going On and Coming Up

Peers Group for Kids

Our peers group has been developed to help create an environment where children are able to work on their individual therapy goals in a group setting.  We aim to provide a healthy, positive environment with children of similar ages to give support and guidance in order to help them face challenges in their lives.  Our goal is not only to empower children, but to have children empower one another.

Goals addressed during our group include, but are not limited to: self-esteem, anger management, social skills, problem-solving, relaxation skills, communication skills, feelings expression, and decreasing anxiety.  This group will consist of 6 to 10 children, ranging from ages 7 to 11 years old.  The group is very interactive and aims to help decrease behavioral and/or emotional problems.

Our Licensed Professional Counselor, Natasha Patino, will be conducting this group.  She has extensive experience with working with this age group, and enjoys leading groups to help enhance her clients' overall emotional well-being and life satisfaction.  She is very interactive with her groups, and will include various activities to help the children practice their skills in a calm, nurturing environment.  If you think your child would benefit from attending this group, please contact our office for more details.
