Family Therapy

RelationshipHands

Our family influences the way we interact and communicate with others. Family Therapy is focused on each family member, both individually and as a group. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s circumstance. The therapist reinforces the constructive aspects of a relationship, while at the same time, identifies the destructive elements of that relationship. Families can benefit from therapy when they experience stressful events that put a strain on other members such as job loss, divorce, substance abuse, depression, domestic violence, or even death of a loved one. With family therapy, there are many factors that have to be identified, interpreted and discussed in a safe and non-judgmental setting. Understanding each family member’s unique role, culture, beliefs, rituals, motivations and actions, as well as the actions of others is part of the family therapeutic process.

As we learn to build on ways to cope and make useful changes in our relationships and our lives, family therapy is an effective and useful way of addressing and understanding the concerns that impact the family as a whole and help you make theh best choices for you and your family.
