About Dr. Tim Thayne

Dr. Tim Thayne has been an avid supporter of strong families for 20 years. Receiving his master's and doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy, he has written Taking the Reins, trained and personally coached organizational leaders around interpersonal relations as well as the fall-out of restructuring in companies. He continues to own a private practice even as he has served as a primary therapist, and owner of wilderness and residential treatment programs. In 2005 he founded Homeward Bound to help families transition and maintain the growth and gains made in treatment. He speaks, presents, and writes regularly on the crucial roles parents and communities play during a struggling teen's treatment and transition home again.

Knowing that parents are the ultimate leaders and shapers of their home environment, Tim works to equip them with the understanding, skills, and stamina they need to seek out the best help for their children, while also building on strengths and shoring up weaknesses in parenting. Family Bridge, an online social media/clinical tool, was created by Tim and his team to ensure better long-term outcomes for families, and is used by dozens of treatment programs today.

As a well-respected professional in the field of adolescent treatment, Tim's contributions of research, experience and energy equip families with the courage, optimism, and customized game plan they need to lead out for their families.

Tim lives in Utah with his wife Roxanne and their five children. He owns an all-natural hog farm, trains horses, and shares his love of nature and wildlife with his family.
