Positive Mind. Positive Vibes. Positive Life.

Thrive Counseling Services provides therapy services to support all individuals who are feeling stuck and/or those who are seeking "something different" but aren't sure what exactly that is. Life can get us stretched so thin that we may feel like we have lost our way. Thrive is a team of clinicians that utilize a holistic approach to counseling while incorporating creativity, mindfulness, and therapeutic tools to strengthen ones self-awareness to improve overall quality of life.

We have experience treating an array of presenting problems in our office face to face as well as offering online telemedicine therapy as an option that way we are able to impact more lives. We specialize working with children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with codependency issues, trauma/PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, impulsivity, conflict within the family system, poor coping skills, and unhelpful thinking patterns.

Simply said, adulting is rough and being a human is not easy. That's okay! We are all on the rollercoaster of life. So we either choose to enjoy the ride or white knuckle through it all. are on the ride.

We provide a safe space for our clients to just "get it out" so to speak. Every living thing on this planet has energy that resides within. What impacts our energy is different for everyone but one thing we understand here at Thrive Counseling is that if you don't deal with your stressors or take care of your whole self. Mind. Body. Spirit. Then life is gonna catch up and knock us on our butts.

Change is a necessary force of nature. It is the only constant in this world.

What coping modality that was working for you in the past may not be working anymore in the present. Which requires you to make adjustments and changes. Yes...the struggle is real.

But WE as humans have the power to choose where we want our energy to go. We aim to help you self explore, teach you new tools to challenge yourself and find inner balance in your lives so everything that may create discomfort or stress doesn't seem like a battle. Once you change your thoughts, your worldview will change. It's a beautiful thing.

Yes, expect to be challenged. Yes, there will be homework. Yes, you will learn A LOT.

You are a human being, not a human doing. It is okay to not be okay as we are all flawed, fragile, and perfectly imperfect humans. It's okay to be angry, sad, anxious, calm, happy, and all the fun complex feelings in between.

Here at Thrive Counseling Services you get the opportunity to just be Human. Like what we are about? Contact us to schedule a session!
