Family Therapy

What is involved in Family Therapy?

Families are similar to countries in that each has its own culture, use of language, structure, subgroupings, rules, patterns of interaction, and impact sustained from previous generations. The goal of family therapy is to improve family life. To facilitate this, the above family qualities are explored and what was previously unconscious is made conscious in order to allow for greater freedom and control. Initially I meet with the entire family and assess for what is needed and proceed from there. To engage the whole family that is made up of varied age ranges, I utilize both verbal communication and family art therapy, which is very effective to assist with self-expression, highlighting the family culture and making changes.
