Abel Juarez, Resident In Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Abel Juarez is a Resident in Counseling who specializes in depression, anger, anxiety, relationships, and addiction. In life, there will be obstacles and complications that can interrupt and affect how individuals cope with negative as well as positive outcomes. These outcomes can influence a person's thought process and have the ability to make them feel overwhelmed, powerless, and anxious. In counseling, these challenges can be handled in a manner in which individuals, couples, and families can address and begin to understand how such difficulties can result in the present situations.

"I am passionate about aiding those in difficult situations to focus on their strengths and build on them," says Abel. "In this, the counseling process becomes an understanding of several issues instead of focusing on the negative aspects that people find themselves in. Therefore, progress can move forward and the client and I can begin to address the issues at heart.

Furthermore, counseling sessions are a nonjudgmental arena in which the client is not thought of in a negative light. Being that, everyone experiences life and reacts to circumstances both negatively and positively. The extent of this reaction is where counseling starts to help those in need of a better understanding of how they conduct themselves."

Armirah Stephens
Self Pay Rate: $99

Armirah Stephens, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Armirah Stephens is a Resident in Counseling who specializes in treating couples, military communities, and families. Armirah completed her Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology at Spelman College and her Master of Arts (MA) in Marriage & Family Therapy at Syracuse University. During her free time, she enjoys making candles and spending time with her family and friends.

Inez Beverly Prosser, Dr. Mamie Phipps Clark, and Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum. These are all names that sparked Armirah's interest in becoming a clinician. During her time at Spelman College, Armirah studied the work of these women and how they made their mark in mental health for people of color. She knew that she wanted to leave her own mark on mental health through her work as a clinician.

Armirah's targeted theories when she provides care are narrative therapy and strategic therapy. She utilizes these two forms of therapy the most because she believes that everyone has their own story to tell and mapping out that story through counseling can be helpful to individuals who need assistance on navigating to the next chapter in their life. Armirah most enjoys helping her clients tap into the resilience that lies within them, while also observing their progress and the strength that it takes for them to continue their personal narrative.

Don is an incredible human being who is right where he needs to be helping people regain balance in their lives. I lost mine. My husband lost his. We lost our marital balance. Don helped us face hard truths and taught us how to acknowledge our negative communications and replace it with the knowledge of how to break the cycle. We learned how to healthfully detach, accept & grow. We are forever thankful to Don for his guidance.

I cancelled my daughter's appointment due to illness (she was throwing up) and was charged a $99 fee! The fact that you would rather me bring my child throwing up to your office instead of allowing me to cancel is disgusting. It is bad enough having a sick child at home, now I have to incur a $99 fee for having a sick child and doing the right thing by keeping her home. Gross. Shame on you.

Monthly Administrators Fee

★☆☆☆☆
It is unfortunate that my therapist of many years Dr. Amanda Trent started working for Thrive. Thrive charges a MONTHLY Administration plus your copay which is ridiculous. To my knowledge noone charges a monthly fee other than Thrive. In my opinion their goal is to gain money not assist patients in need.. If you need help , i recommend locating a facility that does not charge a monthly fee.
