Families are systems composed of generations and subsystems. We learn from our family members, and thus pass down the learned family patterns. Some of those are healthy and relationship building, others are not.
In family therapy, we assess the patterns that are being passed down from generation to generation, and attempt to replace the less beneficial patterns with healthier ones, thus positively affecting the generations to come.
Family therapy promotes effective communication, encourages attachment and individuation, teaches healthy habits, and sets healthy boundaries between members and subsystems.
If you are going through a family crisis, please call for a consultation. Research shows that family therapy shows quicker and more lasting results than individual therapy, and helps with family reconnection and conflict resolution.
