“The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

—Brené Brown

Family Therapy

Are you looking to communicate better and feel more connected with your family members? Do you want to feel more connected and feel better understood by others in your family? Is your family in crisis or experiencing a life transition?

Family therapy can be helpful for families with children of all ages; our practice focuses on family therapy with adolescents, college-aged or adult children; family therapy can include parents, stepparents, children and siblings, stepchildren, extended family, and others that have a significant impact on family life. Our goal is to help the family understand their patterns of relating to one another and working towards improving dialogue and connection with one another. Our family work can be provided in combination with other therapies or in collaboration with other therapists. We use activities and communication exercises to help families become more connected, become better able to communicate with each other and solve problems. We follow family systems approaches, structural family therapy, internal family systems, and Imago. We want our clients to feel less “stuck” in unhealthy patterns or communication that doesn’t lead toward connection. We help families manage life events, such as: deaths transitions, divorce, illness, or entry of new members into a family. Family healing can take time; we do understand that family work at times must be done intermittently and we will do our best to arrange a schedule that meets our client’s needs.
