Problems in your family can affect all areas of family members’ lives. You and your loved ones might notice trouble cropping up at work, at school, or in everyday interactions with other people.  When it feels like the issues in your family are too big for you to handle — and aren’t getting better — it may be time to for family therapy. We can help you find new ways to manage struggles, conflicts, and challenges.Some of the things that family therapy can help with are:

  • Conflicts between family members
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • A family member’s mental illness
  • Financial problems or disagreements about money
  • Problems in school
  • Difficulties between siblings
  • Children’s behavior problems
  • Caring for a family member with special needs
  • Issues with extended family members
  • A family member’s illness or a death in the family
  • Infidelity
  • Separation or divorce
  • How to plan for shared custody of children
Once you have decided on family therapy, what should you expect? First, we will talk to everyone in the family to help us understand what’s going on. We’ll ask questions about how each person views the problems, when the trouble started, and how the family has been trying to manage things so far. How often you meet with our family therapist and how many sessions you’ll need will depend on the specific issues you focus on in therapy.
