Family Therapy

What is family therapy?

In family therapy, the family unit is the client. Family therapy focuses on identifying and examining interaction and communication patterns that are negatively impacting the family unit and the fulfillment of needs of one or more family members. Each family member will be expected to honestly examine their own interaction and communication styles, identify and express their own feelings, and make an attempt at experimenting with alternative methods of communicating and interacting.

Your family's customized treatment plan

Our recommendations for family treatment takes into account the family’s circumstances, structures, and dynamics. Parental involvement in treatment is paramount but can look a lot of different ways, including family therapy with just the parents, with the parents and the teen, with all family members, or a combination of these.

Goals of family therapy

Family therapy aims to unify family members by working together rather than against each other. The objectives include developing effective emergency plans, recognizing and building upon the family’s strengths, and fostering a sense of unity and collective well-being.

Strategies we create in family therapy

Just as with individual therapy, the work done in the session continues outside of the session. In family therapy, family members establish strategies for how conflicts and disagreements will be handled, practice ways of communicating needs to each other, and set up family rules and contracts that will guide teen’s and parents’ behaviors.
