Family counseling is useful for many difficulties that are normal for families to experience. Counseling can help improve communication, resolve conflicts, rejuvenate relationships, and create effective systems. Sessions may also involve topics such as finances, addiction, mental illness, grief, anger or other difficulties the family is specifically experiencing. Your counselor will help guide your family to more effective skills and knowledge to create positive connections and resilience in stressful times. Sessions may involve all family members or just those who are most appropriate to attend. Family counseling is a short-term service that ideally will last six or less months.

An outside perspective is especially important when you are facing challenges you don't know how to address. We'll work together to develop a better understanding of how your family functions and learn new ways to handle conflict, communicate and relate to each other in a healthy way.
