The group taught me to be more self-aware and less self-conscious. I had a lot of fun while learning about myself and the other girls.

Thank you for absolutely EVERYTHING. When I started recovery, I was lost, but you helped me find my way. I hope anyone who’s dealt with my issues has the chance to work with you.

When I am in WISE MIND, I tend to use a calm, logical frame of mind to achieve a healthy, emotionally-driven goal.
— 17 year old attendee of DBT Skills Group
This group helped me not only to find myself and raise my self-confidence, but also to become more mindful of my thoughts, emotions and behaviors. It was also a ton of fun and definitely my favorite part of the week!

Just got back this afternoon – what an incredible vacation! We had the best time with the kids! A year ago I never would have believed you if you told me I was going to do half the things I did in the last 6 days. It was wonderful to be present and participating with my family. Thank you for helping me find a part of myself that I thought I had lost a long time ago. So grateful for the guidance you have given me.

I will always remember the cool techniques and tricks you taught us to cope with.
— 16 year old female recovering from Purging and Self-Harm Behaviors

Two years ago, with your direction, support and encouragement – I made a commitment. Your influence and guidance has been the foundation of my recovery. There are no words to express the depth of my gratitude. And, 2 full years later, I am healthy, I am happy, I am whole. Thank you for walking this journey with me.

Tessa has been extremely helpful with our daughter and our family. It’s been a wonderful process.
— Mother of 14 year old girl

“As a health care professional for over 40 years and a Mom, I take care of others more than myself.  It was awesome to have that time blocked off just for me.  I found the mindfulness techniques that you offered were extremely relaxing and refreshing.  I would definitely do another retreat if one were offered.”

I remember when I first came into this room and felt completely comfortable.
— 15 year old female recovering from Self-Harming
I was cleaning my apartment and I came across my prayerstone that I made in one of your groups. How fitting that I should find it, considering we go over DBT in my theories class THIS Thursday. I’m not sure if I mentioned it but I’m almost done with my second semester at **%%*. I’m in their professional counseling program. Just wanted to say hello and I hope all is well. Thank you for the lessons you have taught me. I hope to see you again down the road.

I definitely learned a lot! A year ago, I was so miserable and lonely. I really wanted a group that I could go to. A year later, I am so happy I found your group and I truly believe it helped me from being in a very bad place.
