What is family therapy?
There are many types of family therapy, but they all recognize that the members of a family are interconnected and that each member plays a part in the solution.
What is your basic approach?
I provide therapy geared toward helping your family generate long-term health and harmony. We'll work to solve the immediate problem while strengthening the emotional bonds and boundaries that help your family to resolve problems in the future. Many of the problems that children and adolescents face are more successfully and quickly dealt with in family therapy.
Do you work with divorced families? What about other nontraditional families?
Yes, I do. Divorced families, families coming together in second marriages (often called "blended" families), single-parent families and other family groups often find that counseling can help to create a more healthy or workable situation. All types of families are welcome and respected.
I'm not sure which type of therapy would be best.
During consultation and assessment we'll discuss different options based on your concerns and problems.
I have more questions before I come for an assessment.
