At Live Sane, we know that people are complex and respond successfully to solutions tailored to their personalities and needs. We believe that if we can build a connection or relationship with our clients, we can help them with fresh ways of thinking, expressing emotions and behaving. In addition, there are often outside issues which impact individuals and families in profound ways. We offer help with the following:
Individual and Family Therapy
The goal of individual therapy is to help people develop new and effective ways of thinking, feeling and interacting with others. The treatment approach varies from client to client, based on each persons’ needs and goals. Other factors for creating the most effective therapy are temperament, age, needs, and difficulties. Live Sane then employs techniques such as:
• cognitive-behavioral strategies
• goal oriented short term therapy
• coaching approach
All of these approaches focus on the clients’ strengths, with the end goal of moving forward with a successful, happy and productive life.
The goal of family therapy is to help build and strengthen family connections and communication. In addition, Live Sane works with clients to provide opportunities to practice new ways of relating within a safe and supportive environment. Family therapy recognizes that any adversity impacting one family member almost always impacts the family as a whole.

Understanding the complex layers that adoption can add to individuals and families is essential for a successful outcome. Identity issues, ADHD and learning challenges are seen at a higher rate for individuals who are adopted. Both therapy and coaching are helpful in working with clients experiencing normative challenges using a specialized adoption lens.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
ASD’s special challenges in emotional regulations and social issues responds very well to coaching. Structured therapy with a collaborative approach has shown to be very successful with ASD clients.
Living with learning disabilities can make life complicated for individuals and families. Depression, anxiety and low self-esteem are all common in people living with these challenges. Therapy and coaching can help provide understanding and structure for people that may be having challenges in comprehension and perception.
