Young Men

Sometimes it’s difficult for adults to understand or recall the many issues teenagers face.

Freedom and respect are as important as ever in this stage of life and in the continual development of a strong male identity.

Having a safe, confidential place and person with whom you can engage in conversations about lifeschoolwork, and relationships is essential.

Having experienced various challenges during his teenage years, Alex can identify with specific issues that young men can experience at this age.

Together, you and Alex can examine what is important in your life, what might be getting in the way of getting what you want, and how you can enjoy life today and in the future!

Young Men’s Skills & Process Group

Appropriate for males age 15-18, this weekly strengths-based group addresses how to handle anger effectively and fully enjoy who they were created to be.

Participants will learn how to identify and regulate their triggers that cause them to escalate anger and engage in negative behaviors. They will learn cognitive and relaxation strategies that will help them create a plan to develop self control over their thoughts and actions. Teachings and exercises will equip them to communicate well and resolve conflict in a healthy, appropriate manner.

Participants will discover a positive sense of self through strengths-identification and will work to create and enjoy healthy relationships and build lasting integrity.

Group meets 10 weeks. Limited to 6 participants. Participants commit to attend a minimum of 8 weeks. Individual appointment required with Group Counselor prior to attending group.
