Families come in many forms and each family is a unique blend of its members. Family therapy can help parents and children work together to find solutions to their most pressing problems—problems that keep them in conflict with one another resulting in a lot of stress and unhappiness. From young children to adolescents and beyond, family therapy can offer tools to families who are seeking to resolve familial problems and deepen relationships.
I approach family relationships through an attachment lens--where children are seeking to know that there is a secure base from which they know they are loved, are lovable, and they can learn to trust. This foundation allows them to then explore the world and know that parents are a refuge from the storm. In addition to knowing that parents are a safe and secure place, family therapy can also help establish appropriate boundaries and expectations for children.
