Forming healthy relationships among family members is crucial to a child’s development. We strive to strengthen your relationship with your child or teen, in order to nurture their growth.
We take a psychological approach to family therapy to help bolster the connections and trust between family members. While guided by a family therapist, family members may benefit by learning to better communicate among themselves. Meanwhile, children may benefit from therapy by gaining a more trusting relationship with each family member. Each therapy session is built around your family and your unique needs. Learn more about our approach and the benefits of family therapy below, and feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have, or if you’d like to schedule a consultation.
Therapy Built Around Your Family
No two families are the same, and no two situations are identical. Each therapy session will be catered to your family’s unique circumstances and relationships. Your therapist will work closely with all present family members to pinpoint difficulties and obstacles in the relationship, and therapy sessions will be customized to address those issues.
Addressing Your Family’s Specific Needs
We address any number of issues that a family may need help navigating through. Your therapist can help to assess and overcome communication issues, emotional issues, and trust issues. Family therapy may be ideal for those who are dealing with divorce, separation, a death in the family, or other traumatic experiences.
Family therapy may also be ideal to help children with certain behavioral issues, including consistent screaming, hitting, crying, whining, pouting, sulking, withdrawing, attention-seeking, or lack of motivation. Your therapist will help you to uncover the source or sources of such issues, so that all family members are better equipped to collaborate and be proactive as they strive to overcome these behavioral outbursts.
Collaborative Problem Solving Approach
We employ the collaborative problem solving approach to address any issues that family members may have between one another or any issues that a family member may have in his or her individual life. Your therapist will help to guide all involved as they assess an obstacle and work together to overcome it or address it constructively. Each family member may lend his or her own input and strengths to the group to help solve problems. This approach is helpful for building trust, strengthening communication, and recognizing and addressing any frustrations that exist. Family members also benefit from the collaborative problem solving approach, since they can employ similar tactics to overcome problems in the future, outside of the family therapy setting.
