    At EMERGE, we believe in the power of groups to to facilitate social and emotional learning growth and learning. Groups reduce stigma and are a safe place to land when life gets hard. Over time, group members become a trusted resource to turn to for guidance and support. 

    Parent Groups
    These groups offer a welcoming and inclusive space to discuss the challenges and rewards of parenting adolescents. Learn about key issues, concepts and current research related to parenting and adolescent development. Identify and work on the wide range of feelings that come up in parenting teens. Grow together and become a trusted resource to each other for guidance and support.

    Parent groups have 6-8 members and meet twice a month. 
    The cost is $50 per session and reduced fees are available. 
    *Two different groups are available. Please inquire.*

    Teen Relational Groups
    EMERGE offers open-ended, relational therapy groups to help members of different ages connect with each other and communicate more honestly. As trust grows, members develop a space where they can be themselves and relate more authentically. This leads to a stronger sense of identity, greater social confidence and an increased feeling of belonging in the world, which can have positive effects on many areas of life. Specific groups available for neurotypical and neurodivergent teens. 

    Teen groups have 5-7 members and cost $50 per session. Reduced fees are available. 

    Group for Graduating Seniors
    The final semester of senior year is undoubtedly filled with excitement and celebration, but can also be filled with anxiety and emotionally challenging experiences in saying goodbye to friends, separating from family and entering the larger world of college and career. This short-term group offers 12th graders an opportunity to connect with each other and discuss these experiences in a supportive environment where they can be genuine and real with their peers. 

    This group has started and meets on Tuesday evenings. There is one space available.
    The cost is $50 per session and reduced fees are available. 

    Young Adult Group
    A weekly support group for young adults ages 18-23 is now forming. The group offers a supportive environment for young adults to talk about their feelings, share their experiences and develop stronger relationships with others. 

    This group is limited to 8 members and costs $60 per session. Reduced fees are available.
