Small Groups        

    I run a variety of groups throughout the year. Groups are short term in nature and usually run for 6 - 8 weeks. Groups are based on need. Some of the possible topics include: friendship, social skills, school success, self-esteem, anxiety, new students' lunch bunch, and a group for children whose parents are in separate homes.  If your child is invited to participate in a group a letter will be sent home. Children are recommneded for group by their teacher, parent, or counselor observation.
