Teen Thrive Group

You are not alone. You will be supported, encouraged, and understood.

Teen Thrive Group is a process and skill building group for teens who are working hard at decreasing their anxiety and/or depression so they can thrive.

If you are a teen who struggles with:

  • Depression that causes you to feel overwhelmed, frozen, stuck, and misunderstood
  • Emotions that sometimes cause you to feel out of control because they go 0-100 in a flash
  • Getting upset easily with strong emotional reactions
  • Feeling fear and worry so much it is difficult to find things in life you enjoy
  • Calming and soothing yourself when you are upset
  • Feeling consumed with negative thoughts about yourself that swirl around and are stuck on repeat inside your mind
  • Long to belong and feel a connection to others so you can feel more understood

Thrive group can help!
