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). Occasional exceptions made for mature 13-year-old individuals.

What: Sentier offers two support groups for LGBTQ-identified and questioning teens. Group members will have a safe space to explore their identities, create community, and just be themselves. Group topics may include healthy relationships, coming out, gender exploration, talking with parents, and other topics that the groups decide upon. 

When: Megan's group: This group will meet in-person on Thursdays from 4-5:30pm in person beginning September 16th for Fall, 2021. Group ends on November 18th. Winter group begins after the holidays (see dates below).
Ashley's group: This group meets in-person on Tuesdays from 5-6:30pm beginning September 14th for Fall, 2021. Group ends on November 30th.

Where: 

Sentier Psychotherapy
670 Cleveland Ave. S.
St. Paul, MN 55116

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: To inquire about either group section, email msigmon@sentiertherapy.com or agroshek@sentiertherapy.com

Therapist: Ashley Groshek, M.A., LMFT and Megan Sigmon-Olsen, MSW, LICSW

Fees: Group cost is $40 for screening and per group session. Sliding fee available, inquire with therapist. Superbills are provided for all group members and are particularly helpful for those who would like to submit to HSA, flex accounts, or insurance providers for out-of-network reimbursement.
