Our family therapists will create an environment in which it is safe to express thoughts and emotions. They will help you improve communication, increase understanding, and facilitate problem solving. Our therapists will offer guidance and give you the tools you need to help you manage stressful situations and become closer as a family.
Family counseling can be utilized by itself or in combination with other types of therapy and can help family members cope with many stressful situations that affect everyone, such as:
Family therapy can include all family members, or only those who are interested and willing to participate. For example, family counseling may include one parent and one child, a nuclear family (both parents with their biological children), divorced parents and their children, a blended family (remarried parents with biological and/or step children), adopted or foster children and their parent(s), single parents, or same sex partners with their children.
As you can see, family therapy is not a “one size fits all” enterprise and is tailored to your family’s unique needs. Our therapists are trained to observe and reflect family interactions and communication styles and will help you define the “four Rs” in your family: Rules, Roles, Responsibilities, and Reinforcement.
In other words, we can help you:
While individual therapy can be helpful in improving relationship and communication skills, family counseling really gets the job done when it comes to addressing family dynamics, conflict, and sibling relationships. Family therapy can also help deepening connections and support when going through stressful times.
