Announcement icon I am handling the groups via Zoom.com Individual sessions can be via FaceTime or Zoom.com.
As a most caring and empathetic person and therapist, I am dedicated in helping children, teens, adolescents, young adults and parents to feel better; connected to themselves and to others in a healthy way. I see parents individually. -- All therapy, is a collaborative approach; together with you, I can help you (young or parent), to feel better. When we feel really bad emotionally, depressed, anxious-- it is often parts of our self that we do not know very well. I will help to guide you to illuminate the unconscious parts of yourself and see what is there. I am here for you! The individual sessions have worked well virtually!
I am well known in the area of Social Skills Groups for young people of all ages who need the group support. Yes, Social Skills Groups are about Social Thinking and connection with peers. They are about friendship. The groups as of late have worked well virtually on Zoom. !!
I offer groups for young people to gain support, as well a place for young people to "give back" and support other kids. The young people who wish to help and support other kids are transparent while in the groups. I create paradigms, social skill activities and interventions, to help the kids resolve their conflicts.

Susan Stern's Groups

Social Skills Groups

Social Skills Groups. They are wonderfully and supportive "therapy" groups. The groups offered are for many different ages. Grades K-12. Parent Groups. ~ An initial consultation is set up to determine which kids are best suited to be in a group together. I use Peer Group Leaders in the groups. (They consist of teens and adolescents who are socially well adjusted and successful, as well academically, as well in Extracurricular activities. These teens and adolescents want to be of help to other kids. (If you know such a child, you can also contact me.)
