A family is a dynamic system, often seen as an entity in and of itself with various parts. Each individual in the family is also a part of the family system. Some therapists provide counseling for families by having the entire family present in each session in order to work with the dynamic as a whole. Sometimes therapists will work with members of the family separately or in pairs depending on the issues that are presented. At Thrive Counseling, we take a prescriptive approach and structure the format of the sessions around what that unique family needs. At the base for working with families is a goal of using activities that facilitate a shift in the dynamics within the family, introducing new....

I offer families with emotional and hormonal teenagers a place to come to find rest and peace. Raising teenagers can be very hard work but with your hard work and determination, no family is without hope. I've worked with teenagers for many years now and have a heart for the difficult and confusing time of life that they are in. They will find my office to be a place where they feel safe sharing what they are experiencing which can lead to more openness and change.

Do you feel like your family has gotten out of control and you do not know what to do about it? Is there a lack of communication, anger, or disrespect between family members? Allow me to provide a space of freedom where you and your family can come to explore struggles and find obtainable solutions. There will be no finger pointing or blame, just me shedding light on perspectives maybe not seen.

Many times we find ourselves in conflict with the ones we love. This may be due to poor communication, old hurts, growing pains or misunderstanding each other needs. In my experience just having a neutral person to facilitate a meeting makes a huge impact. Many of my clients report improvements in their relationships after the first session. Take the first step to improve your relationship today. Call now.

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.

No safer place. No better time. Because family is not an organization but an organism, when one part is hurting or out of sorts, the entire organism is affected. It's easy to play the blame game, and attempt to segment off a family member's issue from the lives of the others. Like it or not, we are all connected, and all have a part in the health and solution of the problem or trouble. I can help you come together to use the collective resources of each family member to benefit the whole, and help with the healing. Family is perhaps the greatest shaper of our identity and values, and therefore is worth the investment and priority to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible.

The family is made up of individuals. Yet the family itself is a unit, an organism, a system of moving parts. Every member is a moving part in the whole of the family. When one moving part stops moving or moves in an entirely different direction, the family unit is affected. For this reason, it is important when working with families that I ideally work with all members of the family. I bring in family members to counseling sessions individually, sometimes in pairs, sometimes all together. I help families learn to communicate and interact in a way that is harmonious, respectful and effective.

In general a child's behavior serves as a thermometer for the health and balance for the family. Using a family systems approach together we get the family back in balance by helping the entire family see and learn the issues that are putting the family unit out of business. This is done by sharing, educating both parents and children, learning coping skills, communication skills, and working on individual issues.
