What makes up a family?

Families can come in all different sizes, cultural backgrounds, and values systems. Ones family impacts an individuals psychological, emotional, spiritual, and physical development.

Families are seen in treatment as a whole unit, with each individual contributing to the family dynamic of functioning.  Family therapy can be used as a primary means of treatment or in addition to individual therapy. This type of therapy promotes a safe environment for the family members to express and explore difficult emotions and thoughts.

The individuals within the family system each bring strengths to the family unit that are drawn upon in treatment in order to bring about effective changes that provide positive outcomes. A families ability to communicate their needs effectively allows for a cohesive family unit. At Thrive Therapy we ensure not to take sides, blame, or provide “cookie cutter” solutions to family conflict.
