Our Approach to Therapy with Children
We approach therapy with children in a unique way. We believe that the most important part of treatment is the relationship between the therapist and child. We at Thrive are also passionate about working with parents and improving the entire family dynamic and relationships. We believe that we can be a valuable resource to the whole family and treatment team (including school professionals and other professionals involved in the child's care). As such, collaborative care is always our focus and goal as we believe that treatment is most successful when all involved people are on the same page.

Strategies and Techniques Typically Used
When we work with children we utilize many different interventions and strategies towards building self-esteem, improving symptoms, empowering change, and providing a safe place to explore feelings. We are collaborative and non-judgmental in our approach, believing many childhood issues are developmental in nature or responses to difficult transitions. It is important to note that each strategy that we use is chosen for a specific reason in that child's treatment. All of our sessions with children are highly individualized and as such the following list is simply a sample of possible interventions that may be used.
Expressive Art Approaches
Mindfulness and Meditation
Behavioral Planning (with family and child typically)
