Nervous Nellies (Ages 6-9)

Led by Bethany Ferreira, LPC

Saturday Mornings, 10-11 a.m. 

8 sessions

Do you ever wonder if your child’s behavior is the result of excess worry?

Is your child often moody, irritable, clingy or restless?

Is your child struggling at school… with peers… or at home?

All too often poor behavior in children is simply labeled as defiant or “bad.” What if we looked to help understand the behavior and your child’s motivation behind the behavior? This group provides children and parents with an understanding of anxiety, how the mind and body are connected and constructive ways to help cope with worry. Parent participation is required for the first, mid and last sessions to ensure strategies are carried over from group to home.

Fee is $40 per session. Husky and Aetna insurance accepted.

** Intake required prior to group acceptance.

Worry Warriors  (Ages 14-18)

Led by Dr. Kathleen Wawrzyniak Webb, PsyD

Wednesday Nights 6-7 p.m.  

8 sessions

Do you ever feel like your adolescent daughter worries more than typical teenagers?

Has the stress impaired functioning at school… her relationships… recreational activities?

Do you wish she could gain coping skills to help decrease the stress?

Today’s adolescent girls have so many challenges and finding ways to cope can feel impossible. This group provides a safe space for female teens to share common stressors and find ways to manage struggles more effectively. Special focus will be placed on mindfulness practices, thought changing techniques and the mind-body connection.

Fee is $40 per session. Husky and Aetna insurance accepted.

** Intake required prior to group acceptance.

Walk with a Doc

Inspired by a internationally recognized non-profit organization, GHW created a chapter of WWAD in 2017 to create a resource in the community for learning, joining with neighbors, and encouraging physical movement.  WWAD events are free and open to all. Each walk starts with a brief presentation by a local provider about a health topic.  Following the presentation, the group goes for a walk for informal conversation and connection.  All ages and abilities welcome.
