Dysfunctional patterns of interaction in our families can be one of the greatest sources of stress and anxiety. Family therapy can help by breaking these dysfunctional patterns, offering new perspectives, and helping family members reconnect in ways that are more beneficial for the current circumstances of the family.
Some examples of transitions that can bring families into therapy include:
- Moving from parenting children to parenting teens
- Adjusting to parenting grown-up children
- Healing after a loss or an illness
- Staying connected through a separation or divorce
- Living as a newly formed blended family
- Adjusting to new economic circumstances
