Where why connects Your story to our story.

Group Therapy & Workshops.

We all need a safe place where we can talk things out, a place that makes us feel not so alone in the world. At Your Story Counseling, we continue to remain wise to the struggles of those around us to develop community groups and workshops that address these issues.

If you’re currently grappling with the decision to begin therapy or not, group therapy may be a beneficial place for you to begin your journey towards healing. Regardless of your current situation, sharing your struggles amongst a group of individuals going through a similar condition with the guidance of a therapist provides its unique benefits to interact with peers and discuss the current chapter of your life as it is.

It provides different perspectives on the conflicts of life while also offering individuals the opportunity to improve their relationships with others. At the end of the day, we’re all looking for ways to better cope and manage the world’s stress around us, and sometimes the best thing is knowing that we aren’t alone in that.

Your Mind Matters

Parent + Student Guide; One-Day Workshop.

This one-day workshop is designed to support teens and their parents to learn how to cope with the stress and anxieties they face throughout the year by applying critical life skills and mindful techniques.

During the workshop, the teens and their parents will be broken out into two groups to benefit from working with our therapists, Bianca Rivera, and Ashley Ullyot. They will provide instruction and understanding of stress-related emotions. Our goal is to teach teens and parents the social and emotional skills that they can apply together or separately moving forward.
