Tarah Galloway, LCPC, ATR

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

I primarily work with children and teens on an individual basis, but sometimes find that family work is necessary. I find it most helpful when the relationship between child and caregiver is strained and needs to be repaired and strengthened. Family therapy can also be helpful when the family has difficulty communicating at home and attempts to do so result in intense fighting. Family therapy compliments individual therapy very well and allows the parent to have an active role in their child's healing journey.

Our family is here to help your family. Effective family therapy techniques involve the entire family in the diagnosis of problems as well as the short-term and long-term treatment options. Our goal is to help return the family to a healthy unit. Each individual family member is an extension of the family unit and cannot be treated for family issues with the exclusion of other members.

If you are struggling in a close relationship with conflict, distance and/or withdrawal, or feel that there is no longer an emotional connection with your partner or other family members, it can be helpful to work with a therapist. It is not just as easy as “how you communicate.” Therapy can help you take an objective look at emotional, thinking and behavioral patterns that perhaps no longer are effective and test new methods of interaction to improve your relationships. This can be applied in your relationships with your spouse, your children, parents and friends, neighbors and work colleagues.

The family is the nexus of how each individual learns to see themselves and interact with the world. The experiences we have in relation with each person in our family unit is of great importance to how we engage in the world-at-large. If your family needs help communicating, is going through a difficult time, has experienced trauma or is at a loss for how to cope with ongoing concerns, please contact me to engage in thoughtful and communicative discussion.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Family life can be very difficult because of the number of personalities at work in one home. Acceptance is one of the many important keys to living in an open and safe home. Learning what roles are in play in the home and adopting new styles of interaction is also important. Power struggles tend to be one of the pitfalls to families who want to live in harmony. Learning to better communicate with openness and calmness allows for problem solving to take place.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Often times families have conflicts that repeat over and over and parents try the same strategies but don't seem to see any improvement in their lives. Through counseling we can identify negative or disruptive patterns that exist in those familial relationships and work on making changes to stop those patterns from repeating. My goal is to build positive relationships up again to where they were and focus on positive changes that will stick and become permanent.

Life is complicated. It is hard to create and maintain healthy relationships with those we love the most. There are many different thoughts and feelings, from the past and present, that exist in all of our interactions with one another.

The world and our family lives are increasingly more complex. Though we all have the tools within ourselves and within our relationships to create thelives we want.
