What is family therapy?

Family therapy is a type of counseling that helps families deal with conflict mediation, communication, anger management, and other relational skills. It focuses on the family system, not just on individual family members.

When we address the root causes of mental health challenges by caring for the family as a whole, we can identify a more sustainable path to healing.

A critical connection

Family therapy can help family members better relate to each other, resolve difficult issues, and cope with big life challenges. It can also help you better understand your loved ones' emotions, behaviors, and problems. In focusing on the entire family system, obstacles can be overcome together.

The challenges family therapy can address:

Family therapy is a core component of our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and by supporting families as a unit, we provide the essential tools and skills needed to better understand, connect, and forge a path towards wellbeing.

Coping skills
Substance use disorders
Death of a loved one
Major life transitions (new move, new job or school, divorce, etc.) 
Conflicts over screen time, friend groups, or curfews
Problems between siblings or other family members

The strategies we create:

When families are stuck in conflict, there is rarely a simple answer or explanation. But the job of your family therapist is to help you develop a plan to address these issues.
