The goal of family counseling is to help family members become experts in their own family…to know their own family system
so well that they canreadjust it without the help of an expert.

Family Counseling, Therapy & Coaching

family counseling

“That which is created in a relationship can be fixed in a relationship.” -Murray Bowen

Family counseling can teach you and the members of your family to deepen emotional connections. Whether it is learning to strengthen family bonds through specific activities, or how to communicate with each member in a more productive way, counseling and coaching can help.

Family therapy is meant to help you and your family members understand one another better and bring you closer together. It may include all family members or just those who have specific issues to work out together. Even one family member can engage in family counseling – when one person changes, everyone changes. Family counseling typically brings several family members together in one session; however, a family member may also see a family therapist individually.

During family counseling, you will:

  • Explore your family’s ability to solve problems and communicate thoughts and emotions
  • Consider family roles and behavior patterns which may contribute to conflict while finding ways to work through those issues
  • Identify your each member’s strengths, such as caring for one another, and weaknesses, such as difficulty confiding in one another
  • Understand the family dynamics, helping create new, productive interactions
  • Better understanding of healthy boundaries and family patterns and dynamics
  • Improve communication with all members
  • Have deeper empathy for specific mental health issues or disorders within the family structure
  • Reduce conflict and have better anger management skills

Our licensed, expert team of therapists is able to pull your family back into a loving, cohesive pattern of living.
