“When I was really depressed, my friends didn't understand what I was going through. I got sick of trying to explain myself over and over again, and slowly we stopped hanging out as much. It was hard not having anyone around to talk to. I'm so glad I found my Shimmer group - because they understand what I'm going through, and I no longer feel as alone!”
"I have a lot of anxiety from academics, I really don't want to let my parents down. They've given a lot for the opportunities I have. My friends from school didn't really get why I stress out so much about grades and extracurricular. It's hard to share my fears with them. I couldn't believe how many people out there were just like me! It feels great to vent my frustrations and dream about my goals with my group."
We know professional coaching ($250/session) and individual therapy ($150/session) can be expensive and confusing. We take care of the matching process for you and give you time to try things out for free!
