If your child has been diagnosed with or exhibits symptoms associated with ADHD, Autism, OCD, ODD, or Sensory Processing Disorder, you may benefit from this group. We've created a safe space for you to share feelings and experiences openly and honestly with others just like you. Learn helpful strategies for parenting a child who has difficulty managing their emotions and behaviors. Through use of CBT and mindfulness, it is possible to learn ways to remain calm and focus on responding more intentionally rather than reacting. Come feel more empowered with a sense of community!
You will learn skills to manage your emotions, cope with life’s challenges, and improve symptoms related to stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Groups are held on a weekly basis for 5-6 weeks. The cost is usually between $45-$65 a session and is offered based on interest and availability.
