Ryan Nicholas Kron's Groups

Teen Support Group (Peers, anxiety +) 6pm & 7:30pm

Being a teen (is HARD). It feels like you don’t fit in, that no one gets you. “Friends” make fun of you on Snap, Insta, and Tik-Tok. You’re alone. You're anxious. You feel sad. Your family/guardian doesn’t get it. The kids at school and online bully you or ignore you entirely. People expect impossible things from you. It feels like no matter what you do you’re a failure. It’s never good enough. Nobody hears you. I get it. Guided group support, 2-8 people per group session - Open Group. I will help!
