9th grade bridge program (1).jpg

Who is this group for?

This would be an ideal group for students who need just a bit more support to make the smoothest transition possible. Maybe students who need some extra practice socially interacting with their peers, students who feel anxious about all of these changes on the horizon and want to feel most prepared, or for students who would benefit from learning the best way for them to get and stay organized during this transition to 9th grade. 

When will it meet?




Exact Dates are 8/7, 8/9, 8/14, 8/16, 8/21, 8/23

6:30 PM- 8:00 PM

Where will it meet?

Our group will meet together at the office, located at 4256 N. Ravenswood Ave. Suite 307. There is a free parking lot right out front, or it is easily accessible by the Montrose Brown Line stop, or the Metra train. 

What can I expect as a parent?

You and I will speak via phone prior to signing up to answer any questions you might have and to make sure this group would be a good fit for your child. If your child already sees another therapist that is okay! I am happy to work in collaboration with them or offer any insights from this group. If your child has never met a therapist before, that's okay, too! During the bridge program a weekly parent newsletter will be emailed explaining what our focus is, how you can best support your child as they navigate this transition, and some things to expect or look out for as they transition to High School. Once the school year has started I will also be available for an individual check-in counseling session with your child (or you!).

How much will it cost?

A flat fee of $300 per student... which gets you 6 small group sessions, a weekly parent newsletter with supportive tips, PLUS one individual follow-up session with your student in September or October after they start High School. HSA/FSA cards, Debit/Credit cards, cash, and personal checks are accepted.
