“Why family therapy… because it deals with family pain.” – Virginia Satir

As the quote from Virginia Satir suggests, family therapy is necessary to address family pain and heal a family’s wounds. Family therapy offers families a way to do this – a way to develop or maintain a healthy, functional family. We all start this life with a family, whether that family is composed of blood relatives, adopted parents, or a foster family. This family that we acquire when we are born influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last.

The clients who come to the therapist for guidance with a wide range of problems, including:

  • Personal conflicts within couples or families
  • Unexpected illness, death, or unemployment
  • Developing or maintaining a healthy romantic relationship at any stage
  • Behavioral problems in children
  • Divorce or separation
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Mental health problems like depression and anxiety
