Made to Thrive helps children, teenagers and their families relieve suffering and restore connection.
Your child does not come with an instruction manual. Being a parent is a hard job, especially when you find you are struggling with your child. You can feel stuck and frustrated, unsure of exactly what to say or do. You may feel desperate to help and protect your child. As a result, you may also be desperate for relief.
Therapy provides children with tools to better express themselves and control their emotions. Children are quick to learn new skills to improve behavior and communication. The therapy process for children often involves working closely with parents/guardians as new skills should be implemented at home between sessions. As a result, family members may be requested to attend sessions or
Made to Thrive can help around a number of issues, including (but not limited to):
- Behavior Issues
- Divorce/Family Separation
- Grief and Loss
- Weight Issues
- School Concerns
Being a teenager is tough. There are pressures from your family, friends, school, etc. There are raging hormones, physical changes, and it can be hard to manage emotions. It’s a time of transition and identity forming that leaves you feeling lost and alone.
Made to Thrive helps teenagers find themselves in a healthy way. We provide a comforting and confidential environment where teens feel safe to be themselves and share what is going on with them. We work with teenagers around the following issues:
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Eating Issues
- Behavior Concerns
- School Issues
Teenagers often connect well with our therapist, who uses humor and sarcasm in therapy when appropriate (Learn more about our child and family therapist here).
The family unit can be difficult to manage. Stressful circumstances such as loss or divorce can impact everyone in the family. Even when an individual has their own issues (anger, work stress, etc.), it can impact all relationships within the family.
Made to Thrive works with struggling families to provide support and relief. Working with a therapist can provide a third-party perspective that can start to heal the hurt and anger within the family. You are the expert on your family, but we can provide tools to improve day to day life for everyone. We work to improve the relationships between children and parents or between siblings. We also work with blended families and single-parent households to make healthy adjustments.
