Family Therapy – Family Counseling
Too much family conflict?
Tired of all the tension?
Loosing the battle of trying to get everyone to get along?
Worried how your children are doing adjusting to a new family reality?
Our goal for you and your family: re-establish family communication, reduce conflict, nurture positive change and development of your child.
Family Therapy Promotes Healthy Family Relationships
Is your family life mired in tension and conflict? Perhaps your child’s behavior is disruptive or uncontrollable or some members in the family just can’t seem to get along. At times you may feel as though you are failing as a parent.
A Diverse Approach that Helps with Multiple Concerns
Family therapy is a versatile, effective tool that can be used to address multiple concerns such as:
- Divorcing/separating parents,
- Your child’s emotional, behavioral or developmental challenges
- Distant or conflict plagued parent-child relationships
- Parent-child attachment
- Adjustment challenges regarding adopted children or combined families

Questions you might be asking yourself about Family Therapy:
1) As a parent, I am/we are doing the best I/we can. I’m worried the family therapist is going to blame us for our child’s problem.
This is a very common concern voiced by parents. It is almost a default mode of a parent to question whether they have done something to contribute to their child’s behavior. We do not share this view of the problems confronting your family. As a parent, you are the expert on your family and the problems confronting you. Our role is as a coach or moderator to help guide you and your family towards more healthy interactions and to reduce conflict and tension.
2) What if we cannot all meet as a family?
While we appreciate the demands of a busy family (both parents working, after school activities/commitments, picking children up from daycare, etc.) it is important to see the whole family for an initial assessment. Sometimes after the assessment it may not be necessary to include all family members. The versatility of family therapy is the ability to see parts of the family (mother and child, father and child, or solely the child or children) from session to session.
