Gifted and High Achievers Group

Gifted students possess advanced cognitive abilities and heightened intensity- creating inner experiences and awareness that are qualitatively different from the norm.

If your teen says:

  • “Nobody likes me or understands me.”
  • “The other kids are immature” or “I don't connect with my classmates.”
  • “Everyone expects me to be perfect.”
  • “I'm stupid.”
Then our Gifted and High Achievers Group might be right your Child.

This Group Is for High Achieving and Gifted Kids Who:

  • Experience anxiety, depression and isolation
  • Are unnecessarily hard on themselves or limit themselves due to fear of failure
  • Report an absence of deep connections with their peers
  • Tend to express negative, rigid or perfectionistic thinking towards themselves or others
  • Need an active support system of peers that understand their struggles

So That They Can:

  • Cope with difficult feelings in a healthy way
  • Feel comfortable taking appropriate risks and recognize that "readjusting" does not mean "failure"
  • Create and maintain healthy relationships
  • Begin to challenge irrational thoughts and shift inflexible thinking
  • Connect with other kids who understand the challenges and frustrations of thinking differently than their peers.

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.

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