Colorado Springs Deployment Counseling

Deployment Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Colorado Springs, CO

For every military movie and book telling a true story, we know there are countless other unsung heroes and their family members fighting to keep this nation safe, and that is just the surface level fight. The service members and their families who have been impacted by deployment know that not every story can be portrayed by Chris Hemsworth and sent to the big screen- there are many struggles that lurk beneath the soil of the brave and free. Colorado Springs Thriveworks Counseling is in the hub for military action, and many of us have been directly impacted by deployment as well. You and your family have and still are serving this nation in the biggest way possible, so let us serve you and not let you walk the path of deployment alone.

Colorado Springs Thriveworks deployment counseling offers numerous options for families and individuals in the pre-deployment, post deployment, active deployment and reunion stages. We also have counseling for children of deployed parents and guardians.

How We Can Help

There is much to adjust to when you, a spouse, friend or family member is deployed. Some examples of ways Colorado Springs Thriveworks can aid you are:

  • Improving relationships at home and work
  • Stress management
  • Adjusting to difficulties
  • Parenting
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Feelings of anger

Many, many, more! Whatever you are experiencing is always worth a call. Each stage of deployment can offer new difficulties for service members and their families. Colorado Springs Thriveworks always looks at situations as the unique and difficult time they are and leads you to the exclusive solution required. This is a hard process for you and your family, and we want to respect that while respecting your right to the best deployment term you and your loved ones can have.

Deployment Counseling for Children

Being a Soldier’s Child is something to be proud of; it is a difficult thing to cope with the long-time absence of a parent or guardian, and sometimes even the strongest soul needs some help.

If your child or teenager is exhibiting these signs, they could be struggling with the preparation for deployment, the absence of a parent or even the reunion of a loved one:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Anger outbursts
  • Confusion (thinking parent left them, believing their safety and security are gone)
  • Problems in school (absences, grades)
  • Regression in behaviors (going back to thumb sucking)
  • Overly concern over about losing someone else
  • Eating problems
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Complaints of stomach aches, headaches or other illnesses

Many of our counselors and therapists specialize in both military/deployment counseling and adolescent counseling, so they would be delighted to meet with your teenager one on one or with you if you think it would be beneficial.

For younger children, the process of deployment is even more confusing. Sometimes the sudden absence of a parent can set them spiraling into the 5 stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance) which can make the already hard job of raising a young child even harder! We like to employ the parents and let them be the guiding hand that leads their children to understanding and healing. One common method is play therapy; there is something powerful in a parent and child simply playing together!

We also are diligent in communicating with the children’s teacher at school. School is always one constant in their lives and should be an understanding place.

Service members and their families have sacrificed so much, so there is no reason you need to suffer the challenges of deployment alone. Colorado Springs Thriveworks is always there to give you the extra support needed! Call 719-266-3919 to schedule.

Jerry was Amazing!

★★★★★
Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.

★★★★★
Thrive has helped my husband so much. He has vestibular issues and it creates bad balance problems. It also has created left side weakness and he has had to use a cane to assist him with walking and stairs. Since being treated at Thrive, he only uses his,cane with stairs now and on occasion when he isn't feeling that well. His balance has improved abiut 65% also. His moods are much better now also since he can get around better by himself! Thank you Thrive for all you have done for my husband and our family!

Lindsay Schustedt has been seeing my 6 year old for a few months now. My daughter has been excited to go to counseling since she gets to see Lindsay. Lindsay has also been able to learn more about the issues that my daughter is experiencing. I believe that Lindsay is a very good counselor and I look forward to taking my daughter to see her in the future. I also have appreciated the communication that Lindsay has had with me regarding my daughter. Thank you Lindsay and ThriveWorks.

The best therapists across the Front Range!

★★★★★
I was recommended to Thriveworks by District 11 for my son who is diagnosed with Autism, PTSD, ADHD and RAD. He had a quite abusive life, prior to my adopting him. Directly from the onset of my scheduling his intake to his intake appointment, my spirit felt that this was going to be the correct place for him to be. Rachel, his therapist, is amazing! The entire staff is amazing. Their communication skills are dynamic and Talon is responding so positively; actually more so than he has with any other therapy group. The focus is on his success! Success in overcoming his obstacles and in life. As a therapist, myself, I highly recommend Thriveworks! Empathy, Compassion, Dynamic abilities in using therapeutic tools and in teaching clients how to use and apply them in life.

So thankful

★★★★★
So very thankful I chose Thriveworks and Kara Kays. Our time together was very helpful, and I made great progress. BDT was not like anything I’ve done before. Old way was to talk about the past and what made me who I am, new way is what is happening today, how can I be effective in my relationships today. Loved the learning tools, and I really clicked with Kara. Great experience

I have known Jerry Noel for 16 years and worked with him for 13 of those years. He is an excellent counselor who is empathetic and easily bonds with people especially adolescents. After establishing an easy, supportive rapport, Jerry can effectively guide adolescents in choices that benefits their confidence and self-esteem. I highly recommend Jerry to help others improve their mental health and lead productive lives.

Making an appointment

★☆☆☆☆
I’ve never had a more difficult time just setting up an appointment. The lady who took my call seemed to be very inconvenienced with what I needed. There was hostility in her voice when I asked questions that she obviously deemed as common knowledge. When she finally found a counselor for my needs, and we moved to make an appointment, even though I said I would take time off work, she still seemed very rude with wanting to make an appointment. I read the profiles of many of the counselors, and they seem like wonderful people. But because of my initial contact with attempting to make an appointment, I will not be seeing anyone here.
