Why a social flexibility group?

Socially anxious or shy/introverted teens by nature are not the kids/teens that are going to get in trouble, unless they get bullied, then their struggles are more visible. In fact, socially anxious kids have a solid academic performance for the most part and therefore teachers don’t notice their struggles unless the academic task involves doing a presentation or when their grades are based on active social participation. However, they really struggle building friendships, maintaining a conversation, ordering food, or simply dealing with others. They really want a friend but anxiety takes over when the opportunity presents.

In adult life, socially anxious people struggle so much more because there is an extreme cultural pressure for everyone to be socially outgoing and extroverted, especially in work environments, as it if by nature everyone has or should have a sociable temperament. The process of applying for a job, interviewing, speaking about their work skills and/or “socially” presenting themselves it’s not a simple but a colossal task for them (more than you can imagine). As therapists, we’re also aware that there is so much we can do in individual therapy; the impact of group learning when dealing with social anxiety is actually a very important component of treatment & help for these clients (as research has consistently showed us).

What’s unique about our group?


Our social flexibility group is a 10-week program that will allow participants to understand how anxiety has become a problem in their life and will prepare them to face places, situations, or people they have been avoiding in a very safe manner and at their pace (exposure exercises).

Personalized life exposures will also be conducted in order to fully make a difference in the treatment. The first five weeks of treatment take place in our office and the other five outside at different locations: grocery stores, coffeeshops, etc.

This is a group that gets YOU out, and gets YOU outAT YOUR PACE!
