The Confident and in Control Group is for kids who might have challenges with poor frustration tolerance, anger, outbursts and inflexible thinking.  Using our unique approach combining imagery, movement, role playing and games, your child will not only have fun in this group but they will  learn  valuable skills to improve emotional regulation.  Our goal in this group is to help channel and “flip” feelings of frustration and anger in productive ways so that children can use this energy to become positive leaders.  In addition to giving children new tools to handle their emotions in a healthy ways this group strives to support parents so that you  have ready to use techniques to help your child at home.

This group is led by Anya Beebe, MA, LPC, Art Therapist and Parenting Coach  and/or Kimberlee Bow, MA, LPC, R-DMT, CT and/or Melanie Pfeifer, MA and Licensed Elementary Teacher along with one of our qualified interns and/or staff members.
