Therapy Groups

One of the unique services at Austin Therapy for Girls is our groups. We feel like group therapy is the key to helping girls at every age whether they are having friendship struggles at elementary school level to transitioning to adulthood in their early 20’s. Anxiety, depression and overall self-worth are the focus of our groups, we find our groups to have significant impact on these issues that girls face at any age.

We also do specialized groups based on current client needs and requests from the community.  Our groups are closed groups which means after the first two weeks we do not allow new members into the group. This often helps to keep confidentiality and create the connection to motivate change.

Most groups are 8-10 weeks for maximum results and often clients will request for group to continue after ending. The fee for group is $50 a session and usually a $50 supply fee depending on the group $250 is charged on the first group, then the remaining fee will be charged on the 4th or 5th session.

This list is updated weekly and if you do not see openings for your current group call 512-981-5279 or e-mail admin@austintherapyforgirls.com to get on a waiting list
