Family therapy is necessary to address family pain and heal a family’s wounds. I look at the family as an emotional unit, which holds that one family member is inseparable from the family network of relationships.
We all start this life with a family, whether that family is composed of blood relatives, adopted parents, or a foster family. This family that we acquire when we are born influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last. Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us from our family of origin. We also learn how to love, and how to interact with others from these first important relationships.
Nearly all families I have worked with suffer from some sort of dysfunction at one time or another. My goal in working with your family is to help your family work together to heal any mental, emotional, behavioral or psychological problems tearing your family apart and to help your family to regain and retain a sense of wholeness and happiness.
Family therapy offers families a way to do this, by helping your family to develop and maintain a healthy, functional family. In order to help a family work together towards a healthy family life, I aim to help family members in improving their communication by solving family problems, understanding and handling special family situations, and creating a better functioning home environment.

What are the benefits of family therapy? Benefits include.

In addition, family therapy can enhance skills required for healthy family functioning, including communication, conflict resolution, and problem-solving. Improving these skills for each member of the family increases the potential for success in overcoming or addressing family problems. In family therapy, the focus is on providing all family members with the tools they need to facilitate healing.
