What is Family Therapy?

Family Therapy is a form of counseling that involves some or all members of a family. A clinician conducts multiple sessions to help families deal with important issues that may interfere with the functioning of the family and the home environment. Our family therapy sessions are approximately 45 minutes in length.


The goals of family therapy are unique to each family and circumstance, and are often designed to help family members:

  • Improve connection and communication
  • Solve family problems
  • Understand and handle special family circumstances (for example, death, serious physical or mental illness, or child and adolescent issues)
  • And create a better functioning home environment

Family therapy sessions may encompass many different treatment styles including but not limited to:
