The Social Strategies Program
Social Strategies fills a need that traditional therapy doesn't. We are a place where clients can belong, connect with others, and learn how to be social in a fun and comforting environment. We continually tell our clients that we are not trying to fix them because they are not broken. We are giving them strategies and tools to use to navigate the complexities of the social world. We’ll never teach them WHAT to think, but we will teach them HOW to think and strategize.
Our program focuses on teaching clients to better understand social situations and to strategize new approaches for successful interactions with others to gain self-reliance and social confidence. We help kids 10 and up, teens, and adults who misperceive social cues, misinterpret intentions, struggle to relate to others, and experience awkwardness and dissatisfaction with their interactions at school, work, or in the community.
We support parents every bit as much as we support their kids by including weekly mini-sessions for parents at the end of every class so both parent and child have the tools and can problem solve together. We also offer parent coaching and workshops throughout the year.
