Tween Girls Social Anxiety Group

Run By Monica Wells, LMHC

Start Date: To Be Determined

Cold Spring Harbor, NY

Your tween is struggling with anxiety. She has a difficult time making and keeping friends, but it's mostly because of the thoughts she's having get in the way. She wants to ​participate in school activities, but she is worried and it seems too difficult!

Learning the skills can take some work, but I know that if you put in the effort, you can really do this.

In group you'll learn:

  • How to make and build friendships
  • Conversation building and rules
  • confidence building
  • taking the leap even when you're scared

Tween Social Anxiety Group

Run By Monica Wells, LMHC

You’re a teen girl, and you struggle with social interactions a lot of the time. You have your thoughts and ideas, ​and sometimes you feel like you don’t fit in. Maybe you feel like you can’t share information, or that if you share ​others will criticize you. You feel like you have no problems making friends, but keeping those friends is a ​different story. You wonder, “what is wrong with me? Why can’t I do this whole ‘social thing?’”

So, your self-esteem suffers. You think something is wrong with you, but there most definitely is not. You just ​need some rules and a path to get to where you want to be. You need to find your peeps, figure out the rules, and ​discover what you can do once you have those rules.

Imagine feeling more confident. You can participate in things you never thought you could have, and it feels ​fantastic. You’re ready to practice your learned skills and move out of your comfort zone!

Want to discover your superpower and your magic? I have helped many teens like you take steps they NEVER ​thought were possible. What you’ll need?

-An Open mind

- The willingness to learn

- Readiness to be part of a group
