Vanessa Fierstadt's Groups

The Courage to Grieve - Pasadena & SCV

When an emotional injury happens our bodies process this much like a physical wound, yet others cannot see it. If you have experienced the loss of a loved one and are searching for a place of support and understanding this group can be a life vest. In this group you can share about your loved one through self expression and art therapy. Death and loss can cause us to move very slowly. Listen to your body. We will be here when you are ready. Taking new group sign ups call now to reserve space

Teens and Young Adult Support - Pasadena & SCV

Being a teen may be one of the biggest hurdles and time of transformation in our lives. No longer a child but not yet and adult. Its not easy, and in today's generation I have seen as a therapist that a lot of you need a safe place to connect and hear that you are not alone. Lets explore who you are, what makes you happy, and allow you the space be heard. Positive self talk, awareness and weekly balance exercises. Be supported individuals who can relate to you. We will also use your music and art in group!
