Family Counseling

Family at a Beach

Family counseling is a form of therapy that is focused on mending and strengthening the family system. Family counseling often focuses on resolving conflicts within the family, improving communication between family members, and helping families adjust to new circumstances. Family therapy can also be a supplemental treatment option for clients taking part in mental health treatment.

An important differentiating factor between family therapy and traditional therapy is the focus on identifying damaging patterns and issues that affect the family as whole rather than focusing on an individual person. This approach has shown to have a significant impact on resolving recurring issues that take place in a family.

Family counseling can help with:

  • Adjustments/Transitions (e.g. new baby)

  • Parenting Challenges

  • Divorce

  • Problems with communication

  • Daily stress and anxiety

  • Grief and loss

  • Trauma

  • Parental conflict

  • Support with mental health and substance abuse
