Does it seem like everyone else is diving into life, but you feel stuck?
Did you think you’d have it all figured out by now?
Do you have high expectations but can’t seem to materialize the life you want?
Are you stuck in a job you don’t want to be in forever?
Have you completed most of your college degree, only to discover the major you picked isn’t really for you?
Do you feel passionately that life holds more for you than what you’re currently experiencing, but unsure of which direction to turn in order to find the joy you seek?
Every week I provide therapy for young adults who feel just like this.

Transformers: Harness the Power of Anger
Anger management group for middle school students.

Groups will meet for six weeks, time and dates to be determined by preference of participants. Group size is limited to 8 members. Register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Worry Warriors: Making Peace with Anxiety
Does your child seem to worry about everything? Is she quick to jump to the worst case scenarios? Does she have trouble fitting in or getting along with others her age? Does worrying about all your child’s worries keep you up at night? There is hope! This therapy group is designed for younger adolescents to help them learn skills for managing anxiety. We will combine cognitive behavioral therapy activities (to learn new patterns of thinking) with art projects (to help express those overwhelming emotions that are difficult to communicate), along with mindfulness based exercises (to ease busy minds and enjoy the present moment more fully). Participants will gain confidence and a greater sense of peace and well-being. Groups will meet for six weeks, time and dates to be determined by preference of participants. Group size is limited to 8 members.
Join me for the next session of the Worry Warriors, beginning January 9. The group will meet for 6 consecutive Monday evenings from 6p-7p, ending February 13, 2017. The cost is $35/session, with total due by the first group session. Participants will need to complete an assessment prior to commencement. This can be scheduled any time between now and January. If you have any further questions or to reserve your spot, please email Meg at email@example.com or at 706-372-1772. Groups must have at least 3-4 participants, with a total allowance of 8. http://www.heartcenterforfamilies.com
