Group counseling is offered at Small Talk throughout the year. We will be offering three different groups on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30, beginning February 20th, and ending March 20th:


Free to Be Me: Strength and Resilience Group for Teen Girls. This 5-week group is open to teen girls ages 13-18 who have been involved in Small Talk services (forensic interviews, individual/group counseling). Group activities, art projects, and discussion will focus on identifying and celebrating individual strengths and using them to promote growth, resilience, and healing.
