Anxiety/Perfectionism Management: Telehealth Group for Teen Girls

COST: $45 per session (*BCBS is also accepted for this group.)

START DATE: On-going

Required phone screening with the facilitator will occur to make sure a group is an appropriate therapeutic setting.

Length of the group will be based on individual on-going progress.

Anxiety and perfectionism both have their place in helping us to get things done, and get them done well. Left unattended, though, they can wreak havoc on self-esteem and lead to destructive patterns of thinking and behavior. This group is designed to reconnect with the positive qualities of ambition, attention to detail, and hard work, while letting go of things like crippling anxiety, low self-esteem, and procrastination. We will use CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and mindfulness techniques.

GROUP GOALS:
Ditch “all or nothing” thinking
Practice Growth Mindset
Manage realistic expectations of self and others
Increase self-compassion
Learn helpful ways to respond to the “inner critic”
