Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
Girls Rock is a social/emotional support group. We use mindfulness, arts, and games to build resources and confidence, and to manage stress, depression and anxiety. Teen girls are in a transition of becoming more of who they are; more independent, discovering their values, making choices, developing relationships and differentiating from their families. Girls Rock! is a safe place to do all this. Girls will: -practice skills that will ground and guide them -build relationships that are respectful and authentic -learn the art of Council, -spend time in nature to develop a connection with the natural world and have fun!
Along with the physical distress of disease can come emotional and mental challenges such as depression, anger, loneliness and grief. This group will provide space to share the unique process of living with disease. We will have the opportunity to be heard and supported in community. And we will use the arts to hold the larger mystery of what it means to carry disease at this time in our society as well as exploring how we relate to it personally. Also, there will be space to share concrete strategies for dealing with challenges of financial demands, time and stress management.
