Family Counseling

What distinguishes a family from any other group is the loyalty, emotional connection and durability of the relationships that exist within a family. No other group of individuals typically generates this level of emotion or commitment. When individuals marry to form a new family they have expectations for creating a place where they can feel loved, supported and fulfilled. However, life can intrude on “family” and our place of safety can become the source of our greatest pain. Work problems, substance use, health issues, anger, financial concerns, or parenting issues, especially during the teenage years, can threaten your family's unity. Family therapy can help.

Family therapy emphasizes the relationships between individuals and is designed to provide a safe space where all family members can be heard and understood. When taken to heart, family therapy leads to increased insight, empathy,  respect and better problem solving. Family therapy can help increase family harmony by:
