Family Counseling

We all start this life with a family, whether that family is composed of blood relatives, adopted parents, or a foster family. Our family influences different aspects of our lives. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.
Family therapy brings parents, siblings and extended family members such as aunts, uncles and grandparents into the treatment process. Depending on the needs and goals of the family, different combinations of family members may participate in each therapy session. Family therapy is a way for you and your family to learn how to maintain healthy family relationships, communicate effectively with family members, and work cooperatively to solve family problems.

Family therapy can improve the family relationships through:

  • Bringing the family together after a crisis

  • Creating honesty between family members

  • Instilling trust in family members

  • Developing a supportive family environment

  • Reducing sources of tension and stress within the family

  • Helping family members forgive each other

  • Conflict resolution for family members

  • Bringing back family members who have been isolated
