Be You! 4-Week Therapeutic Group for Adolescent Girls

Focused on increasing Self-Esteem for girls ages 12-15.

Letters from past participants to future participants:

Dear Human Being, 
This is a great group. It is very calming and you can really learn a lot. I learned that I’m not going through this alone. I also learned that I don’t have to listen to other people when it comes to my own self image.

Dear Random Person,
Hey there. I may not know you at the moment, and I don’t know what you look like. But I already know that you’re beautiful. Who cares about that pimple on your forehead? Who cares about the shoes that you wear?Who cares if you wear makeup or not?
I don’t, and you shouldn’t either. If people don’t like you for who you are, then they don’t deserve you. Love you!


Self-Worth & Image, Impact of Social Media, Peer Pressure, Bullying, Self-Compassion.

The Group meets Weekly for 4 Weeks:

Groups at The Counseling Place meet on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30. We encourage girls to bring a drink & a snack and dress comfortably.

Attendance is important. The girls form a bond, participate in group activities, and provide support to each other. When one misses, the others feel it and the absence disrupts the flow of the group.

The cost:

$80 total. Scholarships are available. What’s most important to us is that your girl gets to attend! Please do not let a financial strain stop you. Just call and talk to Ashley Akers, who runs the group.

To Enroll:
