Adolescent and Parent Services

One of our specialties is helping the struggling teen and their family members through the multi-issued period of adolescence. We offer a teen group and a parent support group. We offer consultation, individual therapy, parenting sessions, and family therapy.

We value family connection and relationship/communication skills. We find it much more effective to work with the family system than to work with only the parents or only the teen.

Weekly Teen Girls Skills Training /Support Group

For the motivated teenager - the focus is on peer support, emotion regulation skills, interpersonal
effectiveness skills, and DBT and CBT skills. This is also a safe place for teen girls* 15-18 to explore
depression or anxiety, conflicts and dilemmas, learn relationship skills to enhance relationships with
siblings, peers and parents, come out of isolation into social well-being, etc.
Mondays 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (in-person)

  • We do offer individual therapy for adolescent boys 14-18

Biweekly Parents-of-Teens Skills/Support Group

This group has been designed for the parents of the girls attending the weekly teen group, and for parents
of teen boys who are in individual therapy at VWC. A primary goal is relationship enhancement with their
teen(s), effective communication, and effective parenting strategies and parent well-being for the very
challenging parenting of adolescents in our modern world.
Tuesdays 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (in person)
