Mindfulness Group for Trans and Gender Expansive Youth

Helping your teen manage anxiety, depression, and the stresses of every day life.

Being a Teenager is Stressful

When you add on physical, hormonal, and genetic features, or gender expectations that do not align with traditional binary notions of masculinity or femininity, it's that much tougher. If your teen holds any of these identities as an intersex person or a trans or gender-expansive person, this group might be a good fit for them.

Being a parent to a teenager can feel impossible. Academic, social, physical, and emotional changes may have turned your child into someone you barely recognize. Mindfulness has been shown to decrease anxiety and depression while increasing feelings of self-esteem in teens. 

Learning mindfulness skills can make the teen years go more smoothly and gives your child a foundational skill that will serve them their entire life.

Calm and Connected

Our mindfulness group will support your teen with managing the intense physical sensations and emotions of adolescence through sound healing and techniques that center the body and the mind. This group focuses on:

  1. Improved Mind-Body Connection: We’ll review the basics of how to regulate physical sensations related to stress, sadness, and anxiety.
  2. Learning the Basics of Mindfulness: We'll go over easy ways to practice mindfulness that your teen can even do in the middle of a school day.
  3. Processing Day to Day Stressors: Your teen will have the chance to bring up any struggles they are going through where they will receive support from our skilled therapists. With space to process, your teen will also learn how to use mindfulness in the moment to manage those stressors.
