"My daughter has learned to recognize her feelings and accept them.  

Donna's group supports my daughter's self-confidence

by knowing that other girls feel like she does and that she's not alone.  

The mindfulness, relaxation and deep breathing techniques and the use of guided imagery

has helped a great deal.  The group has been a very positive experience for us."  SN

Tap Into Your Inner Wisdom and
​Create the Life You Want!

A Group for Girls ages 7-11
It is vital for young girls to realize their own power at as young an age possible.  In this twelve-week group girls will have the opportunity to begin building a foundation of emotional intelligence that will serve them for many years to come!   I'm thrilled to offer this group for young girls to support them in laying a foundation of emotional self-care that can last a lifetime!  

If your child is struggling with.......

  • Worry and fear
  • Negative thinking & pessimism
  • Relationship conflict
  • Lack of assertiveness
  • High sensitivity or
  • Low self-esteem     

Then Courage To Be Me can help!

Using a highly effective combination of conventional and mind-body approaches, I have helped children learn and apply stress reduction and mind-body techniques in their lives with success! This is a highly interactive group where girls will have the opportunity to learn the basics of emotional literacy, self-inquiry and emotional management through a variety of activities and supportive role-play.

It's so exciting to see the girls build their courage and confidence while striving to become the best they can be!

                                              "Letting our children have the opportunity

                                                            to trust their inner voice

                                                        is the most precious gift of all."
