Workshops for Girls

Empowering Girls to Stand Strong

Are you ready to unlock the door to understanding your emotions and learn how to deal with them effectively?  Join Girls Stand Strong for a workshop for girls of all ages that provides valuable insight into your emotions and delivers the tools you need to manage your emotions instead of letting your emotions manage you.  Be empowered so you can create a happier, healthier world and thrive!

  • Learn how to communicate with assertiveness & confidence
  • Acquire conflict resolution skills
  • Discover the positive effects of healthy relationships
  • Recognize toxic friendships & set boundaries
  • Become strong & authentic in all situations

Building Self-Confidence in Girls

Girls will receive valuable information and tools to help them stand strong in today’s complicated girl world. Girls receive confusing messages about themselves from our culture, social media, regular media, and their peers. During this class, we empower girls to begin to question confusing or negative messages about themselves.  We examine the many different ways in which girls receive messages about who they should be and what they should look like. We provide specific strategies and tools to help them stand up for themselves and others. Together—in a supportive and confidential environment—girls have permission to open up, to question, to explore, and to practice newly learned skills. This is a valuable class for girls of all ages.

Choosing Healthy Friendships!

Girls who feel as though they are being picked-on, mistreated, or bullied will benefit greatly from this class. It is designed to help girls feel empowered, to stand up for themselves, and put a stop to bullying and mean comments. It will jump-start a girl into feeling confident in her ability and right to stand up for herself. It provides the tools needed to put an end to unacceptable treatment from mean girls, mean comments, and bullying situations. There are specific things a girl can learn to break this negative and hurtful pattern. Research has shown that if a girl does not learn how to deal with these difficult situations and difficult individuals at a young age—the pattern will likely continue. This can have life-long negative, emotional consequences for a girl.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I left your office so inspired today.
To say Michelle changed our lives would not be an exaggeration. She was very empathetic and non-judgmental... She didn't make our daughter feel badly... She didn't make my husband and myself feel like incompetent parents.
I definitely owe my newfound confidence to Michelle. Without her, I don’t know how I would’ve been able to come out of my horrible situation as such a better version of myself.
People don't understand Michelle doesn’t just offer advice… which they seem to be afraid of hearing. I convey the message that the decisions you make are ultimately your own but Michelle will help you find clarity and sort through emotions.
We felt comfortable knowing that Michelle would be the kind of counselor that would help our daughter see the good in herself, but also question some of her choices and actions.
You have brought back the communication ability that I thought that I lost. You helped her understand what we were feeling and she is such a better person for seeing you.
Michelle, you are so right about [my daughter] and how she thrives off of feelings of accomplishment. All seems to be good now. She amazes me every day with the way she is learning to handle tough situations.
With Michelle’s guidance, I was able to accomplish in approximately 8 months what I hadn’t been able to over the past 15 years.
I am forever grateful for Michelle's help.
Thank you, Michelle, for giving me my voice and a new lease on life.
