Colorado Women’s Center – 1225 Ken Pratt Blvd., Longmont, Colorado
The Girls Empowerment Group is led by Colorado Women’s Center therapist and counselor Nicole Nakamura, M.A., LPC.
While teens in today’s society are more connected via social media, they feel lonelier than ever before. Adolescent girls are experiencing high levels of stress and expressing feelings of depression and anxiety. We know that the adolescent brain develops through connection with others, and this group is intended to help girls build this connection. We will provide a safe space for young women to explore their emotions, share their ideas, and create deep and lasting relationships with peers and with themselves.
The girls will help co-create an atmosphere of safety and security before delving into the personal process using drawing, collage, writing, movement, drama, and more! We will intertwine quiet self-discovery with an energetic connection in each group, encouraging members to look within and then challenging them to share what they find with their peers. We will explore different themes every week, including self-compassion, emotional expression, personal boundaries, and together, we will help foster self-confidence and build community.
