Child and Adolescent Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Peachtree City

Are you wondering what is going on with your teen or adolescent? Many parents have asked themselves this a few hundred times before finally scheduling an appointment to get help. Maybe Your teenager has recently been struggling in school, has been exhibiting defiant behavior at home or has been withdrawn lately.

What does counseling look like?

The first appointment involves gathering historical information about the teenager’s behavior and sometimes wanting to immediately schedule a number of regular sessions for your teen, anxious to receive as much help as possible as often as your schedule can permit.

Family is important

Interactions among family members affect the mental health of each individual in the family. The complementary construction of family members requires long periods of negotiation, compromising, rearranging, and competing. The transactions are usually invisible, not only because context and subject constantly change but also because they are generally the essence of minutiae. Who passes the sugar? Who checks the maps for directions, chooses the movie, changes the channel? Who responds to whom when and in what matter? This is the cement by which families solidify their relationships.

Family therapy aims to help family members solve problems together in the therapeutic setting while learning strategies that can be applied with the adolescent in the home. Learning to decrease family conflicts and improve communication are chief among the goals set for the family. These goals will set the tone for how to effectively navigate the unique family interactions.

We are ready to get the ball rolling with your teen. We are also ready to get the ball rolling with YOU. The family is as much an agent of change in this process as the new coping skills and adaptive behaviors that your teen will learn in treatment.

A game changer for me!!

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
