Evidence-Based Methods

The therapists here at Thrive utilize methods of therapy that are well researched to be effective. Within these approaches, we will tailor our work to you and your particular needs and goals.

We strive to be transparent about our work with you and to help you understand why we feel a certain approach might be best. We encourage you to ask about and be engaged in the process of counseling. Our therapists will work with you to come up with a customized plan for how we can support you in meeting your goals.

The development of a collaborative relationship between you and your therapist is one of the keys to having a successful experience in counseling.

Growing up is hard work. We help children and teens who:

  • Feel depressed, lonely, or isolated
  • Have a tough time controlling their emotions and the behaviors that result (emotional outbursts, anger, aggression).
  • Struggle socially, or tend to end up in friendships where they are being taken advantage of.
  • Struggle academically and feel overwhelmed and stuck in knowing how to get back on track.
  • Feel overwhelmed with life changes or transitions (divorce, blended family dynamics, a move, or loss of a family member or close friend).
  • Have ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
We also offer support to parents who feel overwhelmed or stuck in figuring out the best steps to take to help their child or teen. When challenges are showing up in school we can also work with your child or teens school on your behalf.
