Does your family have trouble communicating with each other?
- Is the family full of strife and conflict?
- Do family members avoid sharing feelings with each other?
- Do members of the family play roles rather than being themselves, in order to keep the family going?
Family therapy is an opportunity to see the repetitive patterns that are keeping the family stuck in pain and to learn new ways of communicating so that problems are solved and relationships restored.
One-half of all diagnosable mental illnesses begin by age 14, and three-fourths by age 24. Early detection and intervention can yield enormous benefits to the individual, the family, and society. Everyone in the family is affected when something is happening to one of the members. Family therapy gives the family the chance to rally together to address problems and move toward effective solutions.
