Quieting the Storm: Empowering Young Women

  • Empowered Spaces 7602 Big Bend Boulevard St. Louis, MO, 63119 (map)

Quieting the Storm is a 12-week therapeutic empowerment group for girls in high school. Since 2009, the primary goal for these groups is to help guide young women back into connection – connection with each other and within. These groups offer support and education that empowers each individual to reconnect with her most authentic self, while learning to navigate her inner world with a sense of calmness, compassion and confidence. Girls benefit from finding connection with a group of young women in a space where they will be seen, heard, accepted, and understood for exactly who they are.

Group therapy offers a safe and rewarding way to connect with and learn from others who are dealing with similar issues.

As a group member, each young woman is a valuable resource to the other members as she shares her experiences (as much or as little as she chooses!) – both the successes and struggles. 

It can be easier for teens to work through challenges with the help of peers in similar situations. This environment provides the opportunity to practice new skills while building trusting and healthy relationships. 

  • Build self-compassion, self-esteem, confidence, and self-awareness

  • Develop healthy coping tools to deal with stress, anxiety and depression

  • Discuss ways to survive the pressures and expectations of being a teenage woman

  • Learn about healthy relationships and find your voice in relationships

  • Discover, recognize, and develop strengths as a woman

These groups offer young women:

  • Community - A safe and supportive space to connect with other young women

  • Connection - Building trusting and positive relationships with other girls

  • A path to Self-acceptance - reconnecting with and honoring her most authentic Self

  • Voice - Encouragement to voice her truth and share her story, building self-awareness and acceptance for both her strengths and struggles

  • Support - As she builds skills and the self-awareness to identify, articulate, and befriend her feelings

  • Validation - A judgment-free zone and the knowing (and believing!) that she is not alone!

  • Skills to Cope - Developing new strategies to cope with the pressures and expectations from today's world - releasing perfectionism and embracing healthy striving

  • Strategies - to reconnect with her Inner Wise Woman during the moments of harsh self-criticism and self-judgment

  • Tools - to work towards better self-care – including self-compassion, mindfulness, shame resilience, boundary setting, communication skills, transitioning to a growth mindset, and gratitude practices
