LGBTQ Support Group for Teens

Teen LGBTQ Support Group


Who: Teens ages 14-17 who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, genderqueer, non-binary, pansexual, and other identities along the spectrums of gender identity and sexual orientation). 

What: A group for LGBTQ teens in need of connection, information, support, and healing. Group members will gain support around current life stressors, discuss topics relevant to LGBTQ teens, and connect in a safe space where everyone can be themselves. Group will decide what topics they are interested in learning more about, and Laura will present on these topics during later group sessions.

When: Tuesdays from 5:00 to 6:30 pm; January 9th - March 13th, 2018. Group is 10 weeks in length. At the end of the 10 week group, teens have the option to be done with the group or register for another 10 weeks. Ongoing enrollment can continue on an open-ended basis, so long as therapist and client agree to continued enrollment.

Where: Sentier Psychotherapy

Why: LGBTQ individuals are at increased risk of mental health issues, substance abuse and addiction, and certain types of trauma. Additionally, LGBTQ youth have limited access to adequate mental health care and supportive services. This group aims to provide the support that is often lacking for LGBTQ teens.

How: Please email Laura to arrange a Teen LGBTQ Support Group Intake session. You can also call (763)913-8261 for more information.

Therapist: Laura Pawlik, MA

Fees: Group is $50 per session; sliding fee is also available. Please ask Laura in email or during Intake session about availability. Receipts are provided for all clients and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement.
