You push your daughter out of her comfort zone, you constantly praise her, you walk on eggshells to avoid giving any feedback that could be viewed as criticism.

Teen girls group is a safe space for teen girls to process feelings with like-minded peers. Group therapy gives teen girls an opportunity to give and get support. Most importantly, group therapy can help your daughter to see that she is not alone!
The group is led by an experienced teen therapist. The teen girls therapy group uses a mixture of experiential exercises and group discussion to help girls foster a healthy identity and positive relationships with others. Group therapy is a powerful way to build self-esteem and social skills. Through connection with others, girls learn and practice self-acceptance, and empathy. The process facilitates the development of a healthy identity, self-confidence and coping strategies for difficult thoughts and emotions. Individual therapy is excellent for overcoming fears, improving mood, and changing behaviors and thinking patterns.
Adolescents are social creatures, in the midst of learning their social skills, and are often more trusting of others their own age than of adults. This makes the group therapy for teens an ideal choice when counseling becomes necessary for this age group. They are excellent at being able to learn from one another while observing and teaching appropriate skills as they grow. However, adolescents cannot be treated as merely young adults in the group therapy setting.
