Family Counseling

Often times, families get stuck in negative cycles that can be difficult to break. Our trained Family Therapist meet with families to gain an understanding of the issues that need to be addressed. Ongoing issues of conflict and communication will be addressed, as well as the difficulties that come with separation or divorce of parents, death of loved ones, and extended family issues. Often times, therapists will meet separately with parents and caregivers to explore healthier and more effective ways of parenting, co-parenting, and discipline so that greater cohesiveness can exist between parents and children. While we will determine specific goals at the onset of family therapy, the ultimate goal is to develop a deeper trust and connection with one another.


Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.

Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Divorce
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Problems between siblings
  • Domestic violence
  • Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonates with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.

Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

  • Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
  • Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members
  • Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics
  • Builds empathy and understanding.
  • Reduces family conflict

Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
