Family participation allows for a more willing exploration of the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that guide both current and past choices. This engenders the type of impactful change to families that is both true and sustainable.

Lasting family improvement rarely happens quickly, but is a process that often begins through your entire family gaining perspective on past choices and behavior. Such understanding often provides insight and wisdom for future choices, resulting in positive transformations of the entire family and a more fulfilling life.

What is Family Counseling?

Family therapy looks at the whole, not just the individual, to improve better family and individual functioning. Problems are addressed at the source, the family, by bringing parents and children together, of any age, to transform interactions and promote healing.

Family therapy has been used successfully to treat many different types of families in many different situations. Family therapy helps a family understand it’s behaviors, dynamics and roles in their unique family make-up. During sessions, a family therapist highlights how each member contributes to the problem in order to facilitate change and builds on the family's strengths to help them solve the problem.
