    Group Therapy Programs

    We have one group currently open for registration, and you can find the registration form below. In addition to our active groups, we are working hard to start several new programs in the coming months! All the groups with an asterisk (*) are still in development, and we will update this page and our social medias when registration for them is open. 

    FJ Psychological Services is introducing a summer group for all ages to develop fun social connections. We will have crafts, snacks, and engaging lessons to strengthen social skills. This group will run for two hours on Thursdays (3-5pm) and Fridays (2-4pm), and you can choose to participate either or both days. Starting June 27th and 28th, we will meet every week (except for July 4th & 5th) until August 9th. Fill out this form to get connected today! We will reach out with more information when the group is ready to begin. 

    Summer Social Group

    This group will focus on kids aged 11-15 and will create a positive community to work on building friendship skills. Topics like communication, handling disagreements, meeting new people, and more will all be addressed. Register here today!

    Social Skills for Teenagers

    For kids aged 6-10 focusing on developing social skills. This group is led by Michael Gerber, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who specializes in play-therapy. This group will learn how to successfully navigate peer relationships and cultivate vital social skills through fun and engaging activities and games. With the second session having begun January 20th, we expect to re-open registration this summer.

    Play-Based Group Therapy 

    Scheduled conveniently at the same time as our play-based group for kids, this group will teach parents the key parenting skills that reinforce prosocial behaviors in children.  

    Parent Training

    Designed to foster the learning and application of novel social skills. The weekly lessons cover three main themes: self-awareness, interpersonal skills, and thinking skills. The lessons last about 90 minutes and can be tailored for any age between 8-24 year olds. While this is a new program, all of the lessons are founded on evidence-based psychosocial methodology, including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and resistance-building activities. Register here.

    *Basic Life Skills

    This school year, FJ Psychological Services is starting a homework club for young students who struggle with getting their homework done. We will have therapists and volunteers help with homework questions while practicing emotion and behavior regulation skills. This club will be open to drop-ins and regular attendees, so whether your child is having an uncharacteristically hard time with homework one night or frequently struggles with getting through their work, this group will be there to help! If you are interested, let us know by filling out this form.

    *Homework Club

    Does your child struggle in school? Are there ways you feel their academic environment could better support them? Then maybe your child is eligible for accommodations through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan. The process of creating and implementing accommodations can be complicated; some common road blocks are obtaining a diagnosis, not fully understanding your options, and communicating ineffectively with the school. If you could use some guidance or education on how this process works, then let us know what you’d like us to cover by filling out this form!

    *IEP/504 Workshop

    An evidence-based program designed to empower and promote resiliency among LGBTQ+ youth. Confidentiality will be a top priority in the creation of this group, from billing to parent drop-off protocols. 

    *LGBTQ+ Youth Resilience
