We offer group counseling in person twice a year for students going through overwhelming life transitions. The groups typically last for 10 weeks and are a group of 6 to 8 participants.
These groups are fun! You will learn about transitions (graduating from college, breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend), get a chance to focus on your particular transition, and build the emotional skills and tools to navigate these big changes.
These groups build community, encourage authenticity, and many people leave having developed friendships. If you are interested call us and we will let you know when our next transition group is being offered in Santa Cruz.Get Started
