Growing Greatly!

a workshop dedicated to building girls' self-confidence

Hey, girls!

Worried 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. It'll be a week of learning lots, making new friends, and most importantly--having fun!

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.
