Family Therapy

Family dynamics are constantly shifting and can be complex. Families may seek out therapy to learn how to communicate better and resolve general conflicts, or to address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family. Family therapy can help improve troubled relationships between partners, children or other family members. It will also help families to recognize unhealthy patterns and teach skills to replace those with positive, healthy communication. A family therapist will help members of your family gain the skills to get through stressful times, communicate more openly, and grow closer. Family therapy is often short-term and it can include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Think your family might benefit from family therapy?

Develop empathic understanding of all family members perspectives

— Martin Keller, Psychologist in Phoenix, AZ

Even when working with individuals, it's important to understand family dynamics. We are not completely separate from our families of origin (who we grow up with), despite our best efforts. Family therapists are curious about what you learned from your family about relationships, apologizing, gender roles, sexuality, apologizing, boundaries, and so much more. That doesn't mean every session is about your family, but when it's important we talk about it.

I work with the entire family to improve communication, increase connection and restore harmony.

— Kellita Thompson, Marriage & Family Therapist in Brentwood, TN

As a family therapist, I see families as interconnected systems where changes for one member can ripple through the entire family. My role is to guide your family through these changes. In my office, everyone is encouraged to participate—because the more voices, the richer the insights and outcomes! I specialize in improving communication and mutual understanding among family members as you adapt and overcome challenges together.

We provide therapy services to children, adolescents, and families . We also work with parents in supporting their children.

— Sala Psychology, Clinical Psychologist in Greenwich, CT

Families can be the most joyous experience in anyone’s life but also the most challenging and sometimes heart breaking. These are the people you are the closest with in your life and share a deep bond with. I look at everyone’s perspective in the challenges that they face and work together to find the best possible outcome. Everyone’s voice should and will be heard when we work together.

— Jacob Rincon, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Antonio, TX
 

I have done family therapy in a traditional office setting, as well as Intensive Family Intervention, for families in crisis, conducted at home, school, or in the community in order to strengthen and stabilize the family, their home environment, and prevent out-of-home placements like hospitalization or incarceration.

— David Miller, Licensed Professional Counselor in Columbus, GA

My passion is to help families who are hanging on by a string. The love that parents have for their children is universal. Every parent wants to provide their children with more than what they had growing up. But the blueprint of parenting that we were raised by is entirely different from the blueprint needed to raise a teen in our ever-changing, technology-driven, modern day culture. Parenting is the most humbling journey with the most steep learning curve but you are not alone.

— Sayuri (Julie) Heinl, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Arlington, VA
