The whole family is a separate identity, an identity that contains its own unconscious wisdom.
-Dr. Shannon Dobbs
Family therapy is a method of understanding and treating emotional problems and personal crises by working with the entire family rather than the individual. Therapy sessions focus on understanding individuals’ thoughts, feelings and behavior within the context of their families. The goal is to harness and strengthen family resources, and help family members work collaboratively towards solutions to their problems. As our children start to move towards independence, we must see them as separate and not just extensions of ourselves. Likewise, other family dynamics need to be looked at from all angles and understanding.
We are trained therapists here to help families from all ethnic, economic and religious backgrounds. We serve both heterosexual and same sex headed families and couples.
