Family Therapist

Kathleen Shack, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mediator, Coach

Within driving distance of Canton

I counsel couples, children and their families through their life journeys. There are many transitions a family goes through in their journey: Pre-marital couple; newly married; a family with a newborn or children of various ages; a family divorcing or remarrying; single parenthood; mental illness; career changes; empty-nesters; retirees; adult caregivers of their parents; grieving the loss of a loved one. Whichever stage you and your family are in, I am equipped to guide you through these life transitions to make the adjustment to them smooth and healthy.

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.

Family Therapist

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Canton

When I provide therapy to families I ensure every family member's voice is heard in order to reach a equal ground towards mutual goal(s). I provide time for each family member to meet with me separately to share their thoughts and feelings regarding presenting issues that they and the family are struggling with. I then meet with the family as a whole to design goals on how to bridge the gap between healthier ways to communicate in order to solve family problems and create a better functioning environment for the family to thrive in.

Licensed Associate Professional Counselor

One individual alone can be extremely complex and difficult to understand. What happens when you have a number of complex people living together under one roof? Absolute chaos! Through family therapy, I help family members to understand each other better and even more importantly, to appreciate how each individual contributes to the family dynamic. Individuals evolve and change overtime and in turn, the family system experiences dramatic shifts as well. This can often be confusing! With the help of a family therapist, your family does not need to struggle alone. A patient and gentle objective listener can educate, guide, and assist you in overcoming

Licensed Professional Counselor & Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor

Within driving distance of Canton

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....

Dorice Neir, M.Ed., M.A., L.P.C.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Canton

Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.

Family Therapist

Greg Griffin, MA, BCPC

Board Certified Pastoral Counselor, Ordained Minister

Within driving distance of Canton

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.
