Group members will also learn and be able to implement coping skills that result in reducing anxiety, worry and improve daily functioning. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on the way people think and act. The concept behind CBT is that our thoughts about a situation affect how we feel and how we behave in that situation. If we consistently apply negative meanings to events, then we are likely to experience problems with anxiety and depression. CBT creates an awareness of negative thought patterns, teaches how to change these negative patterns, and aims to teach you effective coping strategies for dealing with problems. CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of problems such as depression, anxiety, anger, and low self esteem.


Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a unique and effective therapy that incorporates cognitive behavioral techniques and provides coping skills to manage intense emotions, and stress. It is a therapy approach that incorporates elements of mindfulness practice and acceptance. Its main goals are to teach four life skills that teach people how to live in the moment, cope healthy with stress, regulate emotions and improve relationships with others.

Separate counseling groups for adolescents and adults will take place throughout the year. Groups are run by Nyree and Christine.
