Many problems that seem to be related to the individual are, in fact, a family matter. That means the patient to be treated is the whole family. Attachments, bonding & communication often needs to be improved. Feelings of safety and trust may be present but sometimes need a voice to be heard. Other times, safety and trust needs to be developed. Family therapy sets the scene for each member of the family to express his or her needs in an environment of safety & respect. The family dynamic is usually very complex because it is a mix of intergenerational values and experiences. This type of therapy addresses this uniqueness and beauty of the family. For some, adult & child alike, this is the first opportunity to be a healthy, thriving, wonderful family.
