Therapy Groups at ATFG

We feel group therapy is the key to helping girls at every age whether they are having friendship struggles at the 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 combine a variety of skills and concepts in our groups depending on age, developmental level and current issues group members are facing.  The average group is 8-10 sessions and has around 6-8 members and the cost is usually $100 per session.

Payment is reserving your spot and you will be charged regardless of attendance.
