Whether you are dealing with identity, relationships, grief, or other mental health challenges that have/are altering your life, STAR Girlz have a variety of groups that will help you BECOME the person you were designed to be.

Becoming Groups are small therapeutic empowerment groups for those struggling to manage and cope with current and past trauma. Participation is voluntary or can be mandated by courts. The purpose of joining a becoming group is for personal growth. Our goal is to educate individuals and families about their concerns and struggles with recovery through experiencing healing in a safe welcoming environment. These groups focus on specific challenges and allow people to be themselves, grow and S.H.I.N.E.
