Read below to learn more about our approach to different types of therapy, or visit the Our People page to meet our therapists.

Beginning Therapy

As part of beginning therapy for clients under the age of 18, families will be asked to register for an initial consultation. This caregiver consultation provides information that will be useful to your family’s unique circumstances, and will give you an overview of what to expect from your child or teen’s treatment.

The initial consultation provides families an introduction to the LiveHealGive Model. This is a treatment model unique to Live. Heal. Grow. Counseling implemented with children, teens, and families. Caregivers will learn about the heartbeat of Live. Heal. Grow. Counseling, and the quality of services to expect as they begin professional therapy support.


Please note the frequency and duration of sessions will be determined with your clinician on your individual treatment plan. Treatment plans will be reviewed and discussed every 12 weeks. If you have insurance information, please submit the information to our office. Live Heal Grow Counseling will run your eligibility and benefits; providing you with an estimation of costs.

Shared Parenting Course

Live. Heal. Grow. Counseling offers a 2-hour introductory course for caregivers raising children in more than one home. This introductory course provides caregivers with the foundational principles involved in cooperative shared parenting, and guidance for caregivers involved in conflictual (with no history of domestic violence) shared parenting relationships. The course incorporates lecture and guided activities for participants to apply the learning topics to their personal experience. Caregivers taking the course are responsible for ensuring they do NOT register the same dates, unless approved by the therapist-instructor or Clinical Director. The course includes the following topics:

  • Developmental and emotional needs of children growing up in more than one home
  • Strategies for cooperative shared parenting
  • Co-parent communication and engagement
  • Cooperative language vs. conflictual language
  • Reducing defensive responses
  • Self-care and supportive relationships
  • Additional co-parenting resources for personal study

Attendance and certificate

The instructor will maintain an attendance record of participants. Attendance may be confirmed by a third party when a release of information is completed by the participant. Each participant will receive a certificate signed by the instructor. 


The total cost, to be paid prior to the course, is $70/participant. The $70 fee is non-refundable. If needing to reschedule, call 24 hours prior to the scheduled course to reschedule and there will be no additional fees.


Live. Heal. Grow. Counseling maintains confidentiality for all persons utilizing services. In circumstances of suspicion, threat, or witness to abuse, neglect, or violence, a Choices & Changes employee is mandated to report, overriding the confidentiality agreement.

Additional services

Upon completing the introductory shared parenting course, participants may request continued shared parenting counseling or consultation. Insurance and fees apply, according to service provided. 


Parents who have experienced domestic violence with a co-parent will be referred to a program specializing in DV co-parenting.
