Ally Burr-Harris, Ph.D. and Kayla Hoskins, M.S., C.S.W.A

Sessions will include skills-based practice, sharing and support, as well as lighter activities to ensure that we are staying within group members’ tolerance zone. All teens will be screened by the leader individually beforehand to ensure that they are a good fit for this type of group therapy. Cost of the screening is $50 if new to the Children’s Program. We work hard to match group members with similar types and levels of trauma exposure. The group leader may require that the teen also participate in individual therapy to ensure adequate support. Once accepted, all parents/guardians will be asked to first attend a parent meeting, date/time to-be-determined. Parents are invited to join part of the final session. Cost of the group is $75 per session ($600 total), and may be covered by insurance if the teen has a diagnosis related to trauma symptoms.
