Family therapy explores how each member plays a vital role in the family and seeks to improve interactions in a safe space. Family is the first place where we begin to learn what relationships are and how complicated they can be. It can be the source of support and trigger more challenging emotions. Families also evolve and go through their own development with time and major life events. In therapy, we not only identify problems and difficulties in those relationships, but the strengths and identity of the family and each individual member.
Common topics for family therapy can include:
Death of a family member
Divorce / separation
Developing healthy relationships
