Family therapy focuses on strengthening the relationships within the family unit. Family connections are viewed as the “medicine” for the problems of individuals within the system. Family therapy works on improving the relational environment of the family. For parents, attachment ruptures with families of origin may be getting in the way of effectively meeting the needs of our children. For adolescents, family therapy can help to access the primary emotions behind behaviors leading to a more open and authentic family dialogue. Families who are more relationally connected to each other offer more protection to children for many of the risks they may face. Family conflict is the starting point for this type of service and improved family relationships are the solution. Together, we can work to improve your family communication and elevate your natural caregiving instincts.
