Therapy Groups Based on Brené Brown’s Research and Curriculum

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. Our experience has found that participating in groups at ATFG has a significant impact on the issues girls face at any age. Due to the popularity of our groups, we will only accept current client’s into the group. Groups are in person with masks required.

The BOLD curriculum is a courage building curriculum specifically designed for mature adolescents and young adults, based on the research and books of Brené Brown. Shayna Barksdale, LCSW, CDWF-Consultant facilitated the creation of this new curriculum and is the primary provider in Austin, Texas.

Group Info and Pricing

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.

Group rate is $100 a session for a total of $800 for an 8 session group ( credit card/check can be paid full amount or divided into 2 payments of $400) Due to Covid-19 supplies participants will be limited to 6-8 in a group.
