Family Counseling

Families come in many different forms and from many different backgrounds.  Whether you have a blended, step, single parent, or same sex parent family, we can work with you.  We have worked with families of various cultural and religious backgrounds, and can value and appreciate the uniqueness of each family.  Typically in family therapy, we meet with the family all together at first, but then as therapy progresses, we may decide to break into sub-groups and see for example: mom and son together; father and grandmother together, etc.   We work with each unique family in whatever way seems to best help that family. Please let us know if you have any questions about what family therapy is like with us. Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy. Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Divorce
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Problems between siblings
  • Domestic violence
  • Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonates with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels. Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

  • Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
  • Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members
  • Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics
  • Builds empathy and understanding.
  • Reduces family conflict

Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off. If you’re interested in learning about how we can help pull your family back together, contact us today.
