Our family affects who we are and who we become, for better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. We also learn how to love and how to interact with others from these first important relationships. Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members. Some topics within treatment include

  • Child and adolescent behavioral problems;

  • Grieving;

  • Depression and anxiety;

  • LGBTQ issues;

  • Domestic violence;

  • Infertility;

  • Marital conflicts;

  • Substance abuse (All Psychology Schools, 2017).

Great marriages aren’t about clear communication – they’re about small moments of attachment and intimacy.

-Dr. John Gottman
