Girls Rising

Girls explore the "tween" years using the expressive arts and mindfulness practices in a supportive peer group.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” -E.E. Cummings The “tween” years, the short but intense span from childhood into adolescence, present a unique and challenging period in the lives of girls. In this confidential and supportive group Jacqueline Overstreet, MA Mental Health Counseling, will guide girls in exploring difficult areas of the tween years through the expressive arts, mindfulness practices, and peer support. This group is focused on empowering girls to move through the tween period with greater ease and confidence.

Note: no class January 21, February 18, March 4, or April 15.
