Current Group Offerings:

8 Week Improv Group for Teens (Ages 14-17)

Come heal with us through laughter and playfulness! Improv therapy is designed to help enhance communication skills and promotes radical acceptance of “what is” through the spirit of “yes and..”, which is a collaborative experience amongst group members to act out prompts through games and use of imagination. Learn about what it is like to live life unscripted and develop the skills to be comfortable while improvising in a group setting, problem solving, as well as boost your self-confidence.

Fun fact: Improv was born out of social work practices!

The therapeutic benefits of improv therapy include laughter, social connection, building self-esteem, and increased communication skills.

Reviews of the Virtual Self-Compassion Group for the page:

“Being part of this group was one of the best experiences I have had in personal growth and learning. Each week I looked forward to our sessions and the community we formed as a group. Through the intentional structure of the course and the skilled facilitation by Erica, the meetings are a safe place to share experiences and be vulnerable. Beyond my internal growth, I gained a better perspective into the journey of others, developing greater compassion and empathy for myself and others. I highly recommend this course.”

“Erica’s group sessions provide more than positive experiences, she provides a safe space to be vulnerable and open. The group therapy sessions offer the framework for the deep, inner self-work that needs to be done to promote healthier living within one’s self. I recommend this group to all who are needing an extra boost of community, self-awareness, and healing.”

What are chakras?

Chakras recently have become more culturally well known through the increased popularity of yoga and meditation. They are an ancient form of energy systems resembling a wheel of color in the body, with the belief originating in Ayurvedic practices in India beginning as early as 1000 BC. One’s chakras may become blocked due to stress, poor diet, or painful life events. When a chakra is blocked, it may manifest in physical or emotional pain. They can become realigned through meditation, visualization, breathwork, personal exploration of past experiences, journaling thoughts. There are 7 main chakras in the body that are aligned along your spine, with each one having a specific name, color, and health focus.

Learning Objectives:

  • Self-Care Practices & Mindfulness-Based Coping Skills
