a workshop dedicated to building girls' self-confidence

Note: Registration is closing! Get your child signed up by June 3rd!

Hey Girls!

Do you ever get scared thinking about trying something new? Wonder what will people think of you? Or what will happen if you fail? Do you wish you had more confidence to step out of your comfort zone?

Guess what? You're not alone.

Lots of girls have these same worries sometimes! Growing Greatly is all about bringing girls like you together to encourage the growth of the confidence you already have within you. We'll spend a week together learning some new skills to face your fears, use your voice, and let go of trying to be perfect. Most importantly we'll have lots of fun!

Growing Greatly is hosted at Seattle's beautiful Villa Academy through the Villa Ventures summer camp program. Register for Growing Greatly, and learn about other fun camps, at the Villa Ventures webpage.

Hey ladies, I'm Jen Gutzmer. I'm the School Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Counselor at Villa Academy. I also have had the great opportunity to work with lots of kids, teens, and families in private practice. I love encouraging young people to grow, face challenges, and learn to recognize the awesome person that is already there within them. In my personal life I love all things creative, my family, and my furry labradoodle, Ember.


Hi there, I'm Natalie North! I have had the privilege of counseling young girls, teens and adult women in my private practice since I completed my Master's degree at Seattle Pacific University in 2011. When I'm not watching women & girls take courageous steps toward growth in the counseling office, you can find me cycling, hiking, visiting my 7 nieces and nephews, and playing fetch with my German Shorthaired Pointer.
