Social Skills for
Teens & Pre-Teens 

through Cooperative Role-Playing games (RPGs) 

Helping socially anxious pre-teens and teens learn communication skills and conquer social anxiety through cooperative role-playing games (RPGs).


Supportive Brentwood Pre-Teens & Teens 

Group Therapy

The pre-teen and teen years can be confusing and difficult socially, especially following the isolation from the pandemic. Role playing games create a unique fun and structured space for your pre-teen to practice and re-gain confidence interacting with her peers.

Groups are an amazing way to support your pre-teen because your pre-teen is at a critical developmental stage where connection is a priority.  

In this group, pre-teens will engage in collaborative story telling by creating characters that will adventure together through the setting of Dungeons and Dragons. 

though fun is to be had, the story line, characters, and problems this group will solve, will all relate and be tied back to real life skills.

This group is specifically designed to make a fun and playful environment translate into helping pre-teens and teens who may be struggling socially.

This group will provide members an opportunity to work on their social skills in a supportive structured environment, such as speaking up, turn taking, patience, self-confidence, creativity, frustration tolerance, impulse control, communication and coping skills.

Pre-teen & Teen Social Skills through Board Gaming 

Hi my name is Vanessa and I am a Therapeutic Game Master (yes, it’s a real thing!) and I have spent the last 15 years working inside mental health, and finding creative and expressive ways to meet therapeutic needs.

I am so HAPPY you landed on this page.

Therapy can be intimidating to our younger teens. They don’t necessarily have all the words and confidence to sit through traditional talk therapy, but sometimes feel that play therapy can be too kiddie for them.

Role Playing games, like Dungeons and Dragons, helps connect with teens in an imaginative and playful way, but also helps teens access deep feelings and truths that emerge through their character.  

I love seeing the ways teens grow inside of this group, and would love to have your teen join our next cohort that is starting soon.

Enrollment Opens September 25th
