Individual Therapy

Being in your late teens and 20s can be filled with many changes and transitions. Our individual therapy supports young women through the different stages of growth that young adulthood brings.

Group Therapy

Life Skills For Launch: This group is designed for students headed to college, in college, taking a gap year, or transitioning to the next stage of life after school. In six fun, experiential sessions, you’ll have an opportunity to learn and practice building skills for living independently within an environment of camaraderie and support. Make a meal, make a budget, cope with stress, and more!

Explore Your Path:  Designed for young women headed to college, in college, or taking a gap year, this group offers support and tools for navigating the young adult years. We’ll discuss ways to navigate newfound freedom, relationship dynamics, expressing your authentic self, and how to stay safe and sane in a new and changing environment. This six-session group combines process work, support, and skill building.

Walk Your Path:  For college seniors and recent grads, graduate students, and early career professionals: this group provides a supportive space to collaborate with other women from diverse backgrounds who wish to find more balance in their lives. Participants explore their many roles and learn to cope with the intersections of career, culture, relationships, academics and family. This group also helps women navigate different paths and find confidence in making big life decisions.

ACT Therapy GroupAcceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of therapy which helps you relate differently to your anxious feelings, depressed moods, worrying mind, self-defeating behaviors, and/or anything else that causes you problems.  The aim of ACT is to limit the ways these challenges run your life. This six-session group is for college-aged young women who want to encounter depression and anxiety differently and pursue a full and meaningful life.

Young Women’s Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Program:  This is a Comprehensive DBT program that “adheres” to the highly structured model researched by Dr. Marsha Linehan. This program is mindfulness-based and skills-oriented. It aims to equip young women in learning skills for regulating their emotions. We provide individual DBT therapy, a DBT skills group, and phone coaching as part of this comprehensive program.
