How it works

Teens are required to attend all weekly group sessions in person. Parents participate in online sessions the first week, two sessions in the middle, and the final week of group to gain a better understanding of the way anxiety functions in families and how to interrupt the worry cycle with their teen.

$1320 per family

for 24 hrs of group therapy (a savings of over 70%!).

Participants will receive an PDF invoice and attendance receipt at week 4 and 8 which can be submitted to their insurance provider for reimbursement if plan coverage allows. Ask your provider if group therapy is covered and let them know it will be facilitated by a Registered Clinical Social Worker & Registered Social Worker.
**Please note consistent attendance by teenagers and parents is necessary as the skills learned are cumulative in nature. A minimum of one parent is required to participate. There is no additional cost for a second parent from the same household to attend.
