Connections with our family are one of the most important connections that humans have with one another. For many, our beliefs, values, and identity are formed through our family experiences. However, not all families are without conflict or stress and may struggle under the weight of these challenges.
Family therapy can help children and families who need to resolve family issues and learn to communicate and reconnect to keep moving forward. Family therapy is often used to help treat the challenges of an individual that is impacting the entire family. Our Action team can help your family to improve communication, engage in problem solving, and navigate conflict to help you create a healthy, functioning home environment.
“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.” – Virginia Satir, a primary pioneer of family therapy. Satir believed all people possess the capacity for growth and transformation as well as
the ability to continue their education throughout life.
