2019 SUMMER OUTREACH SERIES

Alternative Therapuetic Programs & Resources

promoting self-expression, connection and self-care

These groups have been created to provide unique opportunities within the community geared towards increasing positive relationships & peer connections through various activities coupled with either psychotherapy or art therapy.

Each group is a closed group meaning once the limit is met, others cannot join. Also the expectation is that each member will be present weekly as each session will build on from the previous week. The group process can be powerful so consistency is important as members are becoming more comfortable with one another. * I understand these groups are during the summer often when families take trips so if a client needs to miss one week that can be accommodated but no more than one session should be missed *


All fees are due at registration which can be found under the “Book a Service” Tab; refunds can be made within 3 days of purchase otherwise fee will be forfeited. Parents for anyone under 18 will need to be present for the first 20 minutes of the first group to sign paperwork.
