We are also happy to welcome Michaela Farley, MHP. Call us to schedule a teletherapy appointment with Michaela (612) 568-6050.

Michaela Farley is a Mental Health Practitioner providing therapeutic services via Telehealth and in-person in Burnsville. She received her master of science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Cloud State University. Her experience includes working with adolescents and young adults seeking identity transformation, as well as adults and couples with sexual dysfunction and/or sexual disorders. She also has experience in working with individuals, couples, and families for life transitions, PTSD, and sexual identity.

Michaela’s theoretical orientation typically revolves around Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy, Systems Theory, and Mindfulness.

She observes how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are impacted by both our histories and our future goals. She enjoys seeing how clients can create new meanings and purpose through this lens and move towards growth. It is often an experiential process as clients discover how they experience their thoughts and emotions in the moment. Through this, her goal is for the client to find healing and hope in transforming and building themselves and their goals. Michaela understands that beginning therapy can feel uncomfortable or difficult for clients, and wants all to feel like they have a safe space wherever they are at and process at whatever pace they feel comfortable with.

Michaela currently lives in Mankato, MN. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, and her new puppy. She enjoys being outdoors, photography, and a good cup of coffee.

We're pleased to introduce the newest members of our therapy staff.

Samuel Secord, MHP, is taking appointment for teletherapy.

Sam Secord is a Mental Health Practitioner providing therapeutic services at our Burnsville, Minnesota location and via Telehealth. He will be receiving his master’s degree in December 2021 from the Adler Graduate School and then continue to pursue his licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Sam has worked extensively with substance use disorder and co-occurring trauma. Sam’s experience also includes running substance use disorder groups, providing individual, family therapy, skills services on grief and loss, sexual concerns, and trauma.

Sam’s theory combines Adlerian, Existential, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Systems Theory, mindfulness, and multiculturalism. In short, Sam’s belief is that every individual is unique and requires a tailored approach. His approach considers the client’s history, past trauma, life stressors, and how they view and understand themselves. Through this understanding, clients can begin to understand how their own experiences, strengths, weaknesses, fears, and support systems have influenced who they are today. Sam encourages his clients to see themselves as an active participant in their life who is capable of change, happiness, and defining their success.

Sam’s perspective is experiential, practical, and even fun as he navigates his sessions to understand that all clients and families have unique needs and goals. He desires to help individuals, families, and couples realize their potential, improve the relationships in their lives, and better their self-understanding. He brings an easy demeanor, trust, optimism, and usually laughter to his sessions.

Sam currently lives in Minneapolis, MN. He loves spending time with his fiancé, friends, and family. In his spare time, he enjoys backpacking, reading, woodworking, and learning new topics.

Sam works with teens, adults, individuals, couples, and families of all racial, economic, sexual, and mental health backgrounds.

His specific areas of concentration include:

Blended/Merging Families
Communication Effectiveness
Depression and Anxiety
Grief and Loss
Men’s mental health
PTSD and trauma-related disorders and stressors
Relationship struggles/transitions
Religious Trauma
Sexual concerns
Substance Use Disorders

On Saturday, April 6th, Thrive Therapy is adding a new and necessary workshop offering--Boundary Setting: Improve Your Family Relationships with Boundaries.

Creating and maintaining healthy boundaries in our families is essential to our relationships and overall well-being. However it can be difficult telling our family “No,” knowing what healthy boundaries actually are, and how to establish and maintain them within your personal family dynamic. We tend to be more familiar with having our boundaries crossed by family members than knowing where and what our specific boundaries are. The cycles of behavior within family systems can be rigid, but can also change if individuals set and maintain appropriate boundaries. Small adjustments and changes can reduce hurt and resentment, foster healthier relationships and improve quality of life. Join Hannah Hill, MHP, to effectively learn how to create, set, and maintain healthy boundaries within your family systems.

In his blog post, "How to Love Effectively When Feeling Disconnected," Thrive Therapy's Matt Sutera explains how disconnection can stem from the normal stressors every relationship faces. Partners find themselves connected by conflict (financial worries, family conflict, coparenting concerns, for example), rather than by the bond of love that originally brought them together. Stopping to show one another that love and respect can do much to help reconnect with one another.
Join Matt this Saturday to learn what you can do to re-establish or strengthen your connection to your partner in his workshop, Loving Effectively.

What is it about an inspirational quote over a stunning landscape? Instagram is full of them. You see us publish them here and there, too, but sometimes the words are too simple and seem to romanticize hardship and struggle.

It is important to recognize that we all struggle in one way or another. We all are looking to summit the peak so that we can look past the valleys through which we have traveled. Therapy can equip us to better handle the "climb," and watch for the signs of a safer path to that summit. #struggle #inspirationalquotes #therapy

A new year means new beginnings. This does not negate our past experiences or mean that we have a clean break. It does, however, afford us a chance for introspection where we can pause to recognize things we may wish to change or priorities of which we may have lost sight. Allow yourself to look ahead with hope and a little bit of delight in the possibilities not yet imagined. If you make one resolution this year, resolve to be kinder to yourself and diminish the negative self-talk that can lessen your enjoyment of the moment. "Getting it right" does not mean getting it perfect or even getting what you had originally anticipated. It may simply mean finding some joy in the chaos, or stillness and contentment where they had previously been missing. It may mean letting go of the idea of perfection and recognizing the gifts before you, previously unseen.

May 2019 bring you those moments.

Starting any new project or undertaking is scary, even if it is supposed to bring us joy or fulfillment. Our inner voices remind us of things that could go wrong or ways in which we may be disappointed. Therapy helps us to recognize the negative self-talk and allows us to work through those fears. Don't let fear of what could go wrong let you lose sight of all the things that could go right. #therapy #startsomething #fear #fearless ...
