Boys Upstander’s Group

The teenage years can be extra challenging and overwhelming.

Depression, mood swings, anxiety, social pressures and self-dissatisfaction are common challenges. And while managing these pressures, you are expected to figure out who you are and how you relate to the world.  You don’t have to go it alone. In group, we help teens explore their identities, challenge social constructs, and learn to express themselves in a healthy way so that you can get what you need.

In Group, Your Son Will Learn the Critical Skills Necessary To:

  • Express Emotions in a Healthy Way
  • Build Confidence and Improve Self-Esteem
  • Critically evaluate the impact of Social Media on his life
  • Challenge negative, inflexible thinking

So That He Can:

  • Cope with difficult feelings in a healthy way
  • Be proactive not reactive
  • Stop Comparing himself and his situation to peers and value himself
  • Be an "Upstander," not a "Bystander"

The Details: 

To answer questions and make sure that "group" is a good fit for your teen, we begin with a complimentary 15-minute parental phone consult.  If it sounds like a good fit, we'll move forward and meet with you and your child in person.  Schedule your complimentary screening here.

Dates and Times: Groups meet in the evenings once a week and run for 1 hour.

Cost of Group:  Group fees are paid upfront and charged monthly at the rate of $50 per session.  The 30-minute initial intake session is $60.  This fee will be waived for current and previous clients of Elevate Counseling. Fees are nonrefundable without prior authorization.

Facilitated By: Meg Dufour, MC, LAC

Seats are limited to 8 so everyone has a space and can be heard.
