Family Therapy

Family therapy focuses on relationships within the family unit and requires other family members to be present. Depending on the issues involved, family therapy may be the primary focus of treatment, or as a supplement to advance the goals of individual therapy. Family therapy approach views family as a system which is greater than the sum of its individual members. Rather than viewing the patient as causing the problems, a therapist using this approach helps to identify the family dynamics which maintain the patient’s problems.

Family therapy is highly helpful when dealing with:

-        Grief and loss of a family member

-        Relocation and major life changes

-        Divorce and blending of families

-        Childhood abuse and trauma

-        Cross-generational dysfunctions

-        Co-dependency of family members

-        Enabling of a member’s addiction
