Family Psychotherapy

What makes Family Therapy different from other types of psychotherapy?

This form of therapy is different from individual therapy, not only in terms of who participates, but also in the way that issues are resolved. In family therapy we will look at the family as an entire system rather than attributing problems to one specific person. 

Who should participate in Family Therapy?

Typically anyone relevant to the issues that you wish to resolve should be a part of the session. Sometimes this includes parents and child(ren), but it can also include extended family members such as grandparents, aunts and uncles, godparents, or anyone that the family deems to be a key player in resolving the issue. 

What issues are typically discussed in Family Therapy? 

  • Behavioral issues in children
  • Substance Abuse 
  • Grief and loss
  • Adjustment to life transitions
  • Mental health concerns (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, personality disorders)
  • Military issues (coping with deployment, changes in parenting roles, recognizing and coping with PTSD, relocation)
