Creative Family Counseling, A Children’s Therapy Practice in Louisville, Kentucky, Expands with Growth in Both Clientele and Business Following COVID-19 Pandemic

When Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist Lacey Ryan opened the doors of Creative Family Counseling in Louisville, Kentucky in 2019, keeping those same doors open through a pandemic was not in her five-year plan. However, that’s exactly where Ryan, the Founding Director of Creative Family Counseling, found herself in the early months of 2020 as COVID-19 started to make its way into the lives of Louisvillians across the city including her staff members’ and patients’. While plenty of businesses were forced to close their doors over the last year and a half, Creative Family Counseling has done the opposite. After a period where Ryan and her team worked together to realign their business approach to meet the new normal that included telehealth and social distancing, the practice continued to offer therapeutic services throughout the pandemic. And now, 18 months later, Creative Family Counseling is preparing to open a second office location in Prospect, Kentucky as the team of therapists and the list of specialties and services offered continues to grow.

Is Your Family Overscheduled?

Parenting is a balancing act, and boy is there an awful lot of balancing to do!  We want EVERYTHING for our kids and if we stretch our schedules (and ourselves!) thinner and thinner, we can fit it all in, right?! After all, if they’re involved with healthy hobbies and activities, that keeps them out of trouble with some not-so-healthy alternatives, right?   Learn More...

Who Is Creative Family Counseling?

Creative Family Counseling includes a group of therapists who share a like-minded approach to working with clients. This approach is collaborative – we are not experts on your life. You are. While our training and experience inform our ways of interacting with clients and any recommendations we might make as your Therapists, you are ultimately the decision maker on any changes you make in your life. We feel a collaborative approach is more respectful of the client’s own innate abilities to provide healing and be agents of change for themselves.

We also share an integrative approach. In a world where we experience so much compartmentalization, we value healing that includes unifying all those parts. This includes mind, body, spirit, and community. We find that when the whole person is cared for, the healing people experience in all areas of their life helps facilitate the change for which clients are seeking when they come to Creative Family Counseling. This may include collaboration with other providers with which you work or just be as simple as talking with you about all the various facets of your life and how they impact your present circumstances. Our Therapists’ training in Marriage and Family Therapy also reflects a belief in systemic change. People don’t live in a vacuum. We find that when people’s systems (relationships) find healthier ways of interacting, people experience lasting change and healing. Learn More...
