Team Coaching

Team Coaching

The coaching program at Silicon Valley Therapy is led by Dr. Thomas Lucking, PhD. Dr. Lucking supervises all our coaches so that all coaching is delivered at the highest level of care. All coaches have access to our wide library of tools that support the relational growth within coaching.

Coaching at Silicon Valley Therapy is done within a team-based model. This means you will have the opportunity, within licensing limits, to work with a coach as well as a therapist. Not everyone needs a therapist in addition to a coach but it does provide a higher level of care when that is needed. Each growth or treatment plan is customized for each individual, couple, or family. Your first session with your coach will be to determine if you need coaching only or a therapist as well to accelerate your progress. All Silicon Valley Therapy coaches have access to psychotherapists and a psychiatrist for consultation. This ensures that your coaching experience at Silicon Valley Therapy is backed by a wide variety of healthcare disciplines and a deep knowledge base.

Coaching and Neurodiversity

The team at Silicon Valley Therapy are specialists in Autism/Asperger’s, ADHD/ADD, and Neurodiverse relationships. All our providers work with these challenges and are highly skilled to identify and address the difficulties and opportunities these conditions bring. Your coach will assess the severity of these conditions and determine if coaching or therapy or both are appropriate for your situation.

Coaching Services

Coaching can help with all kinds of challenges including: claiming your voice in a relationship, dealing with a big life transition, working on your self-confidence, managing life overwhelm, improving boundaries, and establishing good habits. Coaching is centered around the following tasks:

  • Goal setting
  • Identifying and managing stress and pressure points
  • Developing and maintaining your life mission and vision
  • Analyzing performance and building on your strengths
  • Staying focused and motivated
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Developing a plan to stop putting energy into toxic situations or behavior
  • Establishing boundaries

Coaching and/or Therapy

Coaching focuses on the future while therapy focuses on the past. Coaching establishes action while therapy establishes insight. Coaching is solution-oriented and helps you establish concrete goals and action plans. Therapy tends to be trauma-based and helps unveil past experiences to define your current situations.

The two are different, yet they can work hand-in-hand when addressing certain issues. Sometimes we need therapy to identify experiences in our past to cope with our present. Other times, we need coaching to assess our present situation to plan our future. Whether you start with a coach or a therapist, your Silicon Valley Therapy provider will help you choose the right path that has the highest potential for reaching your goals.

Therapeutic Supervised Visitation

Written By SVT Team

What is Therapeutic Supervised Visitation?

Therapeutic supervised visitation (TSV) is a type of visitation that takes place in either the home or at a neutral location. This form of intervention is used to address barriers, promote safety, permanency, and improve the well-being for children. This approach has been used for many years to help children and families who have experienced traumatic events, such as domestic violence and/or child abuse.

Who Therapeutic Supervised Visitation is for?

TSV is designed to help parents understand how their behavior affects their children and other family members. This method offers parents the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their children, ways to improve their communication skills and parenting practices. Therapeutic Supervised Visitation allows parents to spend time with their children in a safe and controlled environment.  

Therapeutic supervision can be done in one-on-one sessions or family sessions with both the parents and their children present. In these sessions, the therapist works with all parties involved to help them learn how to communicate better with each other and resolve their differences peacefully. This process takes time and patience, but it can be very beneficial in helping everyone involved to better understand what caused the issues in the first place and how to avoid them in the future.

Why Therapeutic Supervised Visitation is Important?

 Therapeutic supervision is especially helpful when there are concerns about:

  • A child's safety
  • An ongoing conflict between parents
  • A parent's inability to manage their own stress and emotions
  • A parent's mental health issues that could impact the child 

Direct observation of parenting practices is essential to improve family relationships. Specific issues that prevent bonding and attachment with children are typically addressed during supervised visitation as well. TSV enables a parent to visit their children in a safe and appropriate environment with supervision made by a qualified mental health professional.

The therapist may invite the parent to meet separately from their children to provide ideas for a successful visit or education on building their parent-child relationship. The utmost priority of Therapeutic Supervision Visitation is the safety and care of the children. This type of supervision is to ensure that the children feel comfortable and do not experience any distress during their visit.

A number of studies have shown that Therapeutic Supervised Visitation can be an effective tool for reducing conflict between parents and provide the child with a stable environment. TSV also brings an opportunity for parents to practice positive behaviors with their children.

By meeting with a professional regularly you will have the opportunity to talk about your progress and any issues that arise within your family unit. You will also benefit from guidance regarding how to best manage specific situations that may arise within your family.

How to Get Therapeutic Supervised Visitation

Therapeutic supervised visitation is commonly ordered through a legal process and there may be abuse or parental conflict involved in the process. Whenever there is an indication of trauma, abuse, or excessive conflict this type of visitation can be warranted and effective. Upon completion of Therapeutic Supervised Visitation, a report can be written with an assessment and next steps.

Here is a Self-Help Guide to Supervised Visitation from the Judicial Brand of California. 

If you are outside of the state of California we advice you look into state's government website for details on what is required for Supervised Visitation.
