The Infinite U offers individual & family counseling services, social groups, & summer camps


Groups

Many teens and tweens who think in unique ways can feel isolated, misunderstood, or lonely. Our weekly social groups provide a space where individuals are accepted for who they are and as they are, embraced in their strengths, uniqueness, sensitivity, challenges, and all. Expression of innate creativity and wisdom is a core value of these groups. 


The Infinite Teen Community: Tuesdays

Areas of focus include:

~self-awareness  ~self-regulation  ~confidence  ~social awareness  ~social communication  ~healthy boundaries

~self-love and self-compassion  ~acceptance of sensitivity, unique gifts, and personal challenges


The teens describe this as a "friendship group" that uses play, yoga, nature, movement, and games to support social awareness, navigate conflict, enhance social communication, and create a sense of belonging with other teens who struggle to make or keep friends.

The Infinite Teen Community: Thursdays

where high school students who feel "different" are accepted as they are


∞Do you often feel “different”? That you don’t quite fit in or belong?
∞Do you have a lot of deep thoughts?
∞Have you ever been called “an old soul?”
∞Do you ever feel like an “alien” who got dropped off here on planet Earth?
∞Do you ever wonder why you’re here or feel “too sensitive” for this harsh world?
∞Do you feel misunderstood?

∞Do you find yourself wondering why people can be so mean and cruel to each other, to animals, to the environment?
∞Do you wish you knew other teens who think and feel like you do?

This is a space where high school students come to be themselves, as they are, in all their brilliance, uniqueness, quirks, challenges, curiosities, and confusion...where they speak their mind, navigate obstacles, build friendships, cultivate resiliency, share their feelings and ideas, grow their confidence, philosophize about world issues, and are respected and appreciated for who they are. 


We talk, we laugh, we play, we cry, we get mad, we move, we be...together. 


This group welcomes neurodivergent and neurotypical teens alike. We are comprised of teens who are kind, wise, thoughtful, deep, have a lot to say (although may be shy), funny, passionate, creative, and purpose-driven. We welcome diversity in all forms.

 

Meets from 6-8pm weekly in Boulder with monthly social nights. Monthly membership is $250 + small activity fee

NEW! The Infinite T(w)een Community: Wednesdays

where neurodivergent middle schoolers know that they belong

Middle School can be an especially challenging time for kids who feel "different" from their peers or who have a hard time making or keeping friends. It is also a time of great change as kids navigate puberty and adjust to their changing body.  This weekly social group provides a safe space of belonging to practice social communication and create friendships. We will develop more flexible thinking, perspective taking, self and social awareness, gain confidence in being a part of a group, and grow our overall social confidence.  This group incorporates games, movement, somatic practices, and other activities. 

This group was created to serve middle school students who are/identify with one or more of the following: Asperger's, Autistic with a high degree of independence, ADHD, Twice Exceptional, learning differences, anxiety, highly sensitive, easily overwhelmed, and/or who have a hard time socially/making friends/keeping friends.​
