Child & Adolescent
Adult Mental Health
Many people don’t think about how much flexibility and adaptability is required for a family to survive. Families Therapy can be supportive in helping you process the constant life cycle changes including young adults leaving home, new relationships, getting married, moving in together, having children, children growing up, taking care of elderly parents, sickness, deaths in the family, foster children, blended families, and many more situations. Family Therapy involves a new way of thinking about individual problems. Problems often arise in the family as a way of alerting the family that they need to flex and adapt to changes around them.
Relationships are not easy. If they were, we wouldn’t have so many broken families and hurt individuals. It can be difficult to keep the flame of love burning bright when there are so many distractions and stressors that life throws our way. Couples work often focuses on improving and strengthening each person’s ability to connect, communicate, and validate their partner’s feelings in a way that makes them feel loved and understood. When there are problems with the kids, couples therapy is often beneficial to strengthen the parent’s ability to work together on parenting the children, and managing the home. Let’s not forget, therapy can also help to reignite the love and passion for one another as well!
Kids & Teens
Childhood can be such a confusing time for everyone, parents and children alike. Parenting can often become overwhelming, especially when there are problems that are difficult to understand. Children’s behaviors are often misunderstood, leaving kids feeling confused and angry. Therapy with Kids & Teens often involves working from a trauma informed and attachment based approach, working to establish a safe environment for emotional expression and development. It is client-centered and strengths based and can include parent psycho-education and support, art and play, social skill development and other activity based interventions.
