UNCOVER THE POTENTIAL FOR A FUNCTIONING FAMILY
The “perfect family” rarely exists. Regardless of how “perfect” your family looks on the outside, navigating the waters within the home is inevitable. Every family is the sum of all the differing personalities of each member. Whether you and your family member(s) are mending fractures in your relationship, or if you are doing well and wish to deepen your relationship, you might wonder what you can do to build and connect on a deeper level as a team.
We work with families to address the behaviors of each member of the family and how they affect the group as a whole. Our family therapy approach draws from research-based interventions such as: Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy. EFT works to enhance each member’s emotional awareness and improve interactions so that they can understand why certain behaviors predictably lead to more miscommunication and frustration. IFS helps each member identify and understand the specific sub-personalities or families that make up their internal mental system so that each member can acknowledge their feelings about these suppressed emotions, learn how to release these feelings so their are freer to address the actual problem, and ultimately find more positive ways to manage conflicts on their own. We strive to help you and your family restore love and respect to the unit.
