About Thriving Families

About Thriving Families

Thriving Families was started as a private practice in Bend, OR by Kristen Poppert, LPC in 2017.  After seeing the enormous demands for services for kids and teens and the lack of providers, she decided to create a group practice that can better serve our community’s needs.  She hired her first therapist in the beginning of 2021 and is excited to continue to build a team of high quality professionals.

At Thriving Families, we work in a collaborative environment where there is frequent consultation.  This allows therapists to hear different perspectives on how to navigate challenging therapeutic problems and learn alternative approaches so that our youth and family are getting the best treatment possible.  

Thriving Families aims to create office spaces that are comfortable, warm, and inviting.  We know that the best predictor of therapeutic success is the quality of the relationship between the client and therapist.  Thus, we prioritize creating relationships with our clients that are safe, trusting, and supportive.

Thriving Families is about fostering the growth and development of children and teens to trust in themselves, so they can create positive change for themselves and the world. Thriving Families is here to support your family from surviving to thriving!

Children, Teen, and Family Focused Therapy

Children and teens need a different approach! Thriving Families is centered on offering specialized treatment for the younger part of our population. Our therapists have specific training and experience working with children, teens, and families. This means our kids and teens get the most effective support so they can make incredible changes.  We want our clients to enjoy the process and look forward to coming to therapy. 

Not all therapists can effectively work with kids and teens.  This is why we find the best talent around so that our families get the best support and see great outcomes. We have therapists that can start working with clients as young as 3 years old. We offer snacks, sensory/fidget toys, sand tray, play therapy, and EMDR that is specific to children.
