Do you ever feel like you’re the only one going through what you’re going through?

This ongoing group provides a safe, nonjudgmental space for high schoolers to come together for support and peer connection.

Members are encouraged to bring their concerns and be open to receiving input from others. The counselor will provide psychoeducation and facilitate the conversation. Creative arts may be incorporated if the group desires.

This group is ideal for:

  • Adolescents who have never done a group before and want to connect with others over similar challenges, receive peer support, and experience personal growth by participating in a social microcosm of their everyday lives.
  • Adolescents who have recently completed a DBT group or another type of intensive treatment and want to continue experiencing the benefits of group therapy.


High schoolers (9th-12th grade)


Choose from:

  • Wednesdays from 4-5:00pm (begins February 8, 2023)
  • Wednesdays from 5:15-6:15pm


In-person in Sunstone’s McLean office (map it)


The cost of the group is $90/session (minimum 6-week commitment required).

Additionally, a 30-minute intake session ($90) is required for new clients.
