Calm Group for Teens with Anxiety

Teen Calm Group with Sarah Souder Johnson

This group takes place virtually through secure video conferencing at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic and suggestions from the MN Department of Health. Please contact to inquire about the status of this group.

Who: Adolescents in middle and high school who are in need of skills to better manage anxiety and bring calm into their minds and lives.

What: Teen Calm is a psycho-educational group that explores various types of anxiety, the way we feel it in our bodies, and the brain science behind it. Group members will build skills to decrease the overall impact of the stress and anxiety they experience and learn how to prevent it from taking over. Sarah will use a combination of mindfulness, stress reduction, movement, writing, biofeedback, and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to bring about calm and build confidence in each group member.

When: This 6-week group will meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30pm. Next group starts January 13th , 2021 and ends February 17th, 2021.

Where: Sentier Psychotherapy

Why: So that teens can better understand and gain control of worry and anxiety in their lives and promote a sense of calm in all areas of their lives.
