Are you experiencing communication problems with your partner? Is your teenager isolating or keeping secrets from you? Is your child performing academically at a lower level than he is capable of? Compared to individual therapy, family therapy is often a more time efficient way to address problems that are occurring in the family (or couple). When more members are able to come into the office, change can occur at a faster rate.
My goal when working with families and couples is to improve communication so everyone feels heard, both in and outside the therapy room. Parents often feel out of the loop when teens are in individual therapy. I encourage parents to participate in treatment so they feel involved in the therapy process. If you think that some family members may be reluctant to participate, this is something we can discuss in person or over the phone.
I am member of American Academy of Family Therapy and supervise the family therapy training program at Airport Marina Counseling Service. In order to accommodate families, I offer weekend hours to make it easier for family appointments.
