Family Therapy

Family therapy is often beneficial in addressing specific issues that affect the entire family system.  Family therapy can be used as the primary mode of treatment or as a complementary approach (e.g. often a member of the family may work with a therapist in individual therapy and have a second therapist that provides family therapy).  Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that creates strain in the family system. Family therapy can be very beneficial in helping to address mental health concerns that impact the family. Family therapy often aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals. As the family uncovers the source of the problem, they can learn to support each other and work proactively and collaboratively in addressing issues that affect the family system.
