Family Therapy

Regardless of the number of participants in the session, Family Therapy has as its primary focus the functioning of the family unit. Although one family member may be the "identified patient," the focus of treatment is assisting each family member in achieving his or her full potential.

For children's issues, often the best method of treatment is family counseling, because it allows the clinician and the parent(s) to work together in creating a home environment that is most likely to produce a change in the child, or in his or her behavior.

A standard Family Therapy session consists of one hour (50 therapeutic minutes), but some people prefer a more extended session (100 minutes), so we offer you that option as well.
