Families are wonderful, but at times there are conflicts that seem to be beyond a simple discussion to repair. A supportive counseling environment gives families a place to talk and express their feelings while everyone can be heard. It can be a difficult process but one that ultimately keeps people connected and teaches that working through differences can be achieved.

It can be a confusing world, with families coming in many shapes and sizes. Learning how to be connected, have good relationships, and setting up an emotional and physical environment where everyone can thrive can be a big challenge. We focus on attachment; that is, nurturing a deep sense of connection and safety between family members. Connection takes being emotionally “there” for family members, and having time and activity together. Connection means feeling like “I belong, and I’m valued”. Safety can mean discussing a fair work-load balance, limit-setting on behavior, and knowing that we can count on each other.

The family is the primary and most important group that most people will ever identify with. It is very important to understand the relationships that each family member has to the others that contribute to the functioning of the whole family system. It is also important to understand how families evolve over the life span. When there are problems, life transitions, or other issues, the healthy balance of the family system can be jeopardized. Family therapy can restore this balance. It can help the family understand which repetitive behavior patterns are resulting in instability, while teaching new behavior patterns that provide stability, health, and happiness to each family member.
