Costs vary by time allotment and package, and we work to keep group experiences as affordable as possible. Let us know if you are interested in August Integrative Therapy hosting a group experience that meets your needs by emailing us at:

Supporting Your Teen

How to stop parenting from fear & learn to guide from love and trust

The Supporting Your Teen series is a four week in-person program beginning in March (start date and weekly meeting times will be determined by the participants). Each week, you’ll meet for an hour with therapist Jamie Sanders and a small group of other parents. Each weekly topic is accompanied by practical ways to cope with the challenges you’re facing, plus the opportunity to share, connect and learn from one another as we explore ways to take that topic and infuse what we learn into our daily lives.

If you’re ready to learn some positive parenting strategies to help your teen beat anxiety, stress and worry—while cultivating more balance and resilience in yourself—you’ve come to the right place.

Grief Support Groups

These groups are similar to the Healing Retreats, but are in once a week in a 4 week or 6 week format. Support Groups also include discussion on handling some of the practical or challening aspects of living after a loss. Some topics often discussed include: talking to others about your loss or answer difficult questions, handling Holidays and anniversaries of importance (the date of the loss), coping with financial changes and legal challenges, parenting while grieving, coping with depression or fear, and/or topics specific for those bereaved by suicide. We bring people together, or provide for your already connected group. We design groups for children as well.
