Family Therapy


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:

  • Parent-child conflict
  • Longstanding negative conflict patterns
  • Problems between siblings
  • Divorce
  • Marriage and Re-marriage
  • Domestic violence
  • Life stressors and recent big changes in the family (new baby, moves, parents’ careers and schooling, childrens schools and peer group changes, finances, health, accidents, surgeries, death, in-laws, extended family, LGBTQ+ coming out of one or more family members, religious/faith crises, etc.)
  • Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Family therapy is often very helful in addressing family issues and helping families heal. 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 effective communication and boundary health
  • Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members
  • Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics
  • Builds empathy and understanding
  • Promotes acceptance and affirmation of all family members
  • Encourages development of shared family values and collective family identity
  • Builds connection, support, bond, love
  • Reduces family conflict

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