Even the strongest, healthiest families run into conflict: they disagree about finances, they become displaced by a member’s choices or habits, they fail to see eye to eye on a major decision. These are just a few examples of the issues a family might experience. These and other challenges can leave a family reeling—parents and kids might lose touch, siblings might refuse to see one another. When there is a problem that threatens family relations or dynamics, this is the time to reach out to a professional.
“You are born into your family and your family is born into you. No returns. No exchanges.” –Elizabeth Berg

How Does Family Therapy Work?
The family therapists at our office can help your family resolve the issues in your home, using a variety of effective strategies. First and foremost, our approach will focus on helping you to build the following:
- Effective communication
- Safety and comfort
- Empathy and trust
In addition, family therapy is meant to help you and your family members work through your unique issues. This means that your family therapist will first work to understand what’s going on, what your family’s needs and goals are before designing your treatment plan. This enables them to develop the most effective therapy plan. For example, if you and your spouse are going through a divorce, your family therapist will help you and other family members to tackle difficult conversations pertaining to separation arrangements, difficult emotions, time with your children, and more.
