Rise! Incoming High School Freshman Girls’ Group
What is the Rise! Incoming Freshman High School Girls’ Group?
Girls in high school are faced with enormous peer pressure, a desire to belong and fit in, and anxiety about everything from relationships to grades to college choices. They are often very uncertain of themselves and they struggle to figure out who they are and what makes them happy. The Rise! Incoming High School Girls’ Group is a group for girls just starting out in high school to develop more confidence and the skills to truly connect with others and with themselves. The group is based on the research of Brene´Brown, Ph.D. It uses creative exercises, stories and art projects based on Dr. Brown’s The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ programs. All of the activities are designed to be fun and meaningful for high school girls.
Groups are offered periodically and are limited to 8. New members may join during week 1 or 2, but not after that because by the end of week 2, the group will already be connected with one another and on their way to being motivated to change. The group is designed to be 6 – 8 weeks for maximum results.
When is the next group?
The next group dates and time are TBD and will start in August right before school starts and continue into the first 6-8 weeks of school.
Why would my daughter want to do this?
Because this provides an opportunity for her to connect and grow with other peers in a safe, supportive, and fun environment where she will build confidence in her ability to be successful in high school. She will learn that she is not the only one struggling with being a teen in our pressure-filled, fast paced world.
What will she learn?
She will learn that she truly matters and is worthy for who she is, not what she wears, who she dates, who she hangs out with or what she does. The goal is for these learnings to help boost her self-confidence, to teach her to love herself and to encourage her to live bravely in her own life.
Will this give her “grit”?
Grit is currently a popular metaphor for resiliency – that ability to dig deep, rise again and forge on despite difficulties and failures. The Rising Strong™ program is all about rising from failures and writing a new ending for oneself.
How much does is cost?
The fee for group is not set yet but will likely be $400 – $450. A $100 deposit is charged upon enrollment.

Can I enroll my middle school daughter?
This group is for incoming high school freshman girls only because it is focused specifically on transitioning to high school. If you have a middle school daughter that you want enrolled in a group, please contact me as I will be offering a middle school group in the future.
