LGBTQ Support Group for Teens

Teen LGBTQ Support Group

One section of the Teen LGBTQ group will remain online while the other will be offered in person outdoors for summer 2021. In case of inclement weather, the group will meet online.

Who: Teens ages 14-17 who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, genderqueer, non-binary, pansexual, and other identities along the spectrums of gender identity and sexual orientation). Occasional exceptions made for mature 13-year-old individuals.

What: Sentier offers two support groups for LGBTQ-identified and questioning teens. Group members will have a safe space to explore their identities, create community, and just be themselves. Group topics may include healthy relationships, coming out, gender exploration, talking with parents, and other topics that the groups decide upon. 

When: Megan's group: This group meets on Thursdays from 2:30-4:00pm in the summer. Next group begins on June 24, 2021 and ends on August 26, 2021.
Ashley's group (currently FULL): This group meets on Tuesdays from 5:00 - 6:30 pm. Next group begins June 8th and ends August 31st, 2021. This group is not taking new members at this time 

Where: Ashley's group will be held online until Fall, 2021. Megan's group is being held in-person for summer. Office address below:

Sentier Psychotherapy
670 Cleveland Ave. S.
St. Paul, MN 55116

Why: LGBTQ individuals are at increased risk of mental health issues, substance abuse and addiction, and certain types of trauma. Additionally, LGBTQ youth have limited access to adequate mental health care and supportive services. This group aims to provide the support that is often lacking for LGBTQ teens.

How: To inquire about either group section, email msigmon@sentiertherapy.com or agroshek@sentiertherapy.com

Therapist: Ashley Groshek, M.A., LMFT Megan Sigmon-Olsen, MSW, LICSW

Fees: Group cost is $40 for screening and per group session. Sliding fee available, inquire with therapist. Superbills are provided for all group members and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement.
