Our Thrive Mental Health Team

Our Beliefs On Mental Health

We believe that every soul has value and every soul has personal worth.  The scriptures speak of God’s unconditional love for all; therefore, it is our goal to demonstrate God's love to all by meeting them at their point of need.  The most powerful foundational component is in understanding that God invites all to experience His healing love, even during trials, trauma, personal failure, and hardship. It is our goal to walk with you through the difficulties in life, giving you a safe place to process your emotions in a healthy, welcoming environment. Our mental health team offers different healing modalities from Cognitive behavior therapy to Equine applied learning. We will do our best to be sure that you are receiving the appropriate care necessary for you to begin your healing journey.
So if you are believer in Jesus, your relationship may be enhanced greatly. If you are not a believer in Jesus, please know that you will be respected by our team right where you are. We also believe that our faith that God has created you uniquely special with a purpose will inspire you to have hope in your future.
"Working with Kassie Castaneda was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. She gave me cups of refreshing, cool water. I came to her broken and confused, and ended my time with her feeling whole, heard, and strengthened to trust my own relationship with the Lord. Kassie so beautifully listens to the Father's heart as she serves her clients."

"Ashlee with the thrive program has been such a blessing in my life since we started our weekly sessions. She has given me such valuable perspective and clarity about things that I have struggled with for years. I'm really looking forward to continuing our sessions and seeking the healing that I so desperately need."
"My husband, Matt, and I saw John for pre-marital counseling. He had it tailored for our situation and made sure any potential issues were openly addressed in the most loving and godly manner possible. He really helped us understand the best way to approach issues as we are beginning a blended family. My favorite thing is knowing we can come back to him at any point because life is hard."
"Sherrie is absolutely amazing! I came to her at a really low point in my life, and she helped me through it. She helped me through my healing process and really was God's messenger to help me get back on track and following his will. I thank God for her every day because life is amazing!"

Answers to Common Questions?

Are your professional counselors licensed by the state?

Yes! Our professional counselors are either licensed in Kansas or Missouri.  They are also board-certified mental health life coaches. If you live outside of the state of Kansas or Missouri,  check this website to see if your state is a part of the new  Counseling Compact. This legislation enables therapists to counsel anyone from a state within this new Counseling Compact agreement. This new legislation will not be enacted until mid-2024. Here is the link for more information.
If your state is not a part of the counseling compact, you may request mental health coaching services from our counselors. All of our professional counselors are also equipped to provide biblical counseling.

What is a Mental Health Life Coach?

Mental Health Life Coaches assist clients with various issues that have kept them from reaching their goals, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, socially and physically. Like licensed counselors,  mental health life coaches have different specializations and training which equips them to provide services that benefit clients. Your coach will  provide strategies to help you reach your desired outcome.

What is a Biblical Counselor?

A Biblical Counselor has either a bachelors degree, masters degree or doctoral degree from an accredited university, bible college and seminary. They are trained in mental health disorders and therapeutic processes which will help clients with emotional healing but do not diagnose. Biblical counselors use God's word to bring healing to wounded souls and spirits.

Do I have to be a Christian to receive counseling?

Absolutely not! Our mental health professionals welcome all to receive our services. We understand that not everyone shares the same beliefs in Jesus Christ that we do, but we believe that it is important that our clients understand who we are and what we believe. The way this effects clients who are not Christians is that we believe that each soul has infinite value and worth and our therapeutic process will be built upon this truth. Our goal as mental health professionals is to honor each person we see without discriminating against those who believe differently, and that our faith will inspire hope in those we see. If there is an issue that we do not feel qualified to address, our professional ethics recommends that we refer clients to other counselors or organizations who are better qualified.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I request a new coach/counselor?

Yes! It is very important to us that you are comfortable with your coach/counselor. You may choose another coach/counselor at any time. However, if you have paid for your session, you will not be refunded for your scheduled appointment, but you may use those funds to schedule with another coach.

Can my coach/counselor testify in court?

No, your coach/counselor will not go to court for you. We recommend you contact another professional counselor in your state to provide a mental health evaluation and assessment which most courts require.

What if I have a serious mental health disorder?

You will be able to work with a Life Coach, however, we do not recommend you see a life coach instead of a professional counselor. We recommend that you remain in treatment and continue to receive treatment from your professional counselor.

Do you work with couples and families?

Yes, we have coaches and counselors who specialize in working with couples, children and families.

I schedule and can’t make my appointment. Will I lose my money?

We understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances can cause a conflict with your scheduled appointment. If you need to reschedule, you have 30 days to use your funds. After 30 days, you will lose your funds. Our team will send out emails reminding you to reschedule before this occurs.

May I gift my session to someone else? Even after scheduling?

Yes! Whoever takes your session must complete the intake forms and confidentiality forms before they are seen.
