Counseling for Families and Couples

Family Therapy

In Family therapy, the focus is on the relationship between the family members.
 
There are stories that your family members and you have been telling to yourselves and each other that has been getting in the way of your family’s preferred relationship.
 
There may be a shared family problem story such as anger or anxiety that affects the relationship and robs you and your family of happiness.

Through our work together new opportunities for dialogue will present themselves, and you and your family members will be able to voice yourselves and be heard. 

Thus, your family will work collaboratively in repairing conflicts and problems and create meaningful solutions for problems from a stance of compassion and love. 

 

Couple’s Therapy

In Couple’s Therapy, the focus is on creating connections and to work on the problems that the relationship is experiencing.
 
Some of these problems can be difficulty with communication, power struggles, criticism, defensiveness, disrespect, blaming, intimacy and sexual issues, and emotional or physical withdrawal from interaction.
 
Thus, these problems mask over empathy, intimacy, happiness, and love that your partner and you initially felt for each other.
 
There are conflicts in any relationship; thus, by creating a supportive and safe environment, we can explore ways that your partner and you can handle conflicts in positive ways while giving each other empathy and support.
