FAMILIES:

Family Counseling is an approach that works with the whole family as a system.  The goal of Family Counseling is to assist the family in identifying dysfunctional or maladaptive processes and behaviors and work to modify or correct them.  It is important to note that family is identified by those within the family.  This could include people who are related biologically or those who are associated through friendship or kinship.  It also may include people living in the home or those who have impact with the family who live outside the home. Families come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. Our office welcomes families of all kinds Family counseling allows members to discuss their feelings in a safe environment, while allowing the therapist to uncover or address specific concerns.

COUPLES:

Couples Counseling is focused on the relationship between two people and helping them to find more functional ways of working together.  Couples are not defined merely as those who are married but any two people seeking to find ways to function better together.  This could include spouses, partners, dating couples, friends, siblings or even work colleagues.

Our therapists can also assist with pre-marital counseling as well. Just as one would get an oil change and check the tires before a long road trip, couples too, should think about a relationship tune up before you make the life long commitment.  The therapist will help the clients touch upon the major issues that couples face, including money, how the family of origin effects the relationship, expectations of gender roles,  intimacy, children/parenting, and how each partner fits into each other’s spiritual life.
