A child is said to have failure to thrive when they don't meet recognized standards of growth. Failure to thrive isn't a disease or disorder. Rather, it describes a situation in which a child is undernourished. They either don't receive or are unable to process enough calories
Now you may be wondering okay, what does that have to do with me and how does it connect with the name of your business? Well I'm glad you ask. Thriving Well means just that. If you look closely at my logo key foundational pieces are missing. Kind-of like many people in various stages in their lives when they begin therapy with me. Mentally they are undernourished and at any moment they can fall.
The key components that I teach each client is to help them gain those pieces they need to stand on their own and go from surviving to thriving well. The holistic solutions comes from my various experiences in different treatment modalities that we can use together to help you take off some of the weight you have been carrying with hopes to release and become the person you want to be.
Therapy does not "fix" anyone. Therapy is the solution/beginning step in the right direction for you to identify and learn coping skills to heal and help you live a well life.

Vital functions occur during different stages of sleep that leave you feeling rested and energized or help you learn and forge memories. Practicing good "sleep hygiene" helps, too.
