What is Family Counseling?

There is no greater influence than family in our development and well-being.

Our families shape how we view the world by passing down learned family patterns. Some patterns are healthy, and support our personal growth and positive relationship building, while others are not.

Family counseling is a form of psychotherapy that seeks to reduce distress and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. What distinguishes family counseling from individual counseling is its perspective or framework that views problems as patterns or systems that need adjusting.

Family counseling promotes effective communication, encourages attachment and individuation, teaches healthy habits, and sets healthy boundaries.

Focus Areas

Areas addressed in counseling include, but are not limited to:

  • Improving communication

  • Trust building

  • Setting boundaries

  • Parenting conflicts

  • Codependency

  • Separation

  • Divorce recovery

  • Unexpected loss of a family member

  • Blended families

  • Cultural stress and oppression

  • Significant change (i.e. life transitions, relocation, traumatic experiences)
