Hello! I am Georgia A. Bryce and I am the proud owner of the private practice, Building Families According To Pattern, LLC.
I transitioned to the world of therapy after having worked in the field of environmental science and engineering for 16 years. I have been working for approximately 6 years as a clinical therapist in the state of Florida; specializing in identifying poor (dysfunctional) patterns of interaction and communication in families (and couples) that often give rise to interpersonal relationship (family) conflict and other internalized issues.
I provide both individual therapy (non-religious ) and Christian counseling (to those individuals for whom involvement of their faith and the scriptures in the therapeutic process are of paramount importance) to help clients work through a myriad of concerns, as mentioned below.
One of my flagship services involves offering therapeutic support to individuals recovering from substance and alcohol abuse (must have completed detox and/or a treatment program). This includes, but is not limited to recovery planning and emotional sobriety; boundary setting; building a support network; crisis and relapse prevention planning; addressing underlying issues fueling substance use such as mental health diagnoses, guilt and shame; life skills development; and, employment and family reintegration (working through the impact of the addiction on their family and addressing those stressors within the family that could precipitate relapse).
Being certified as a professional life coach is an added bonus, as this allows me to assist individuals needing help with clarifying their life's purpose and vision, as well as defining their career pathway.
I believe clients are the experts of their own lives, despite their current state of affair, and my responsibility is to create a safe, non-judgmental environment that fosters clients' capabilities and their sense of self.
I am collaborative and solution-focused in my approach and my strategy involves asking pivotal questions early in the process to gain a good grasp of client' concerns and to get clients thinking. I utilize homework throughout therapy duration to reinforce clients' gains. I encourage clients to be as open as possible as this allows me the opportunity to provide them with the best level of service.
