Who We Are & How We Evolved
Revive Relationship Therapy & Life Coaching helps adults breathe life into relationships with themselves and others through traditional psychotherapy and life coaching sessions. Sessions are offered face-to-face in a relaxed casual office environment in Carlisle, PA or via an online virtual connection from the comfort of the client’s home or office. At Revive, we believe that people thrive when they are comfortable “flying solo” yet consistently create and nurture healthy, interdependent connections with others. One day we hope to put a huge dent in the loneliness and social anxiety epidemics!
Founder and owner, Rosie Via, noticed in her psychotherapy practice that many people seeking help for depression and anxiety were experiencing significant gaps in their social support systems. So many people confided that they had no confidantes or trustworthy friends that Rosie decided something had to be done to address the problem. Over and over people said, “I have trust issues,” yet the longing of their hearts was to trust.
At Revive R.T. we understand the fear. Many of us have been bullied, left out, dumped, ignored, and abused. All-to-often the pain was inflicted early in life, so we shut off the part of ourselves that openly loved others and chose to stay safely behind closed doors. But isolation has only
increased the pain and emptiness.
Revive Relationship Therapy & Life Coaching was born out of a desire to help people recognize their value, teach them healthy interpersonal relationship skills, develop confidence, and live their best lives. The organization maintains an office, but many clients prefer the online option due to jobs, child care issues, work travel, or lack of transportation. Sometimes, the online option is a mere convenience! For whatever the reason, our simple-to-use HIPAA-compliant secure tele-health platform is available for therapy, life coaching, and groups.
In addition to traditional therapy and coaching opportunities, Revive R.T. is constantly creating groups both face-to-face and online. The groups aren’t for everyone, but many people “grow into them!” as their social anxieties lessen and their confidence grows. The group modality provides an incubator for experimenting with conversation skills, eye contact, assertiveness, authenticity, boundary setting, and developing social confidence. (A common side benefit of groups is a sense of belonging!) Clients of Revive R.T. grow individually through therapy and coaching, while building community in therapy groups and educational workshops. This is truly a multi-faceted approach to help people gain confidence personally and inter-personally as they feel ready, willing, and able to participate. Each person receives individualized, kind, and respectful attention and moves at their own pace. The ultimate goal is that clients will thrive in friendships as well as romance and live happy, fulfilling lives.
