Family Therapy

Family therapy is based on the belief that we are shaped by the world in which we grow up. The single most important influence for most of us is the family. In the family, members are taught what kind of behavior is acceptable and how people should interact with each other. In family therapy, no single person is viewed as "the problem;" there are no good guys or bad guys. The goal is to understand how family members interact with each other and how each member contributes to the overall family dynamic. Family therapy can be useful when children or adolescents are having problems, when an adult family member has significant psychological problems, or when families are transitioning to another life cycle. Family therapy can help identify how family patterns are impacting on the overall health of the individual members and create strategies for facilitating better communication and healthy change.
