Family Therapy

Every family has it’s own culture, tradition, rules, and expectations. Some of this is learned and some is created with the blending of two (or more) family cultures. It is common to experience difficulties in times of change or transition. Often the child or children manifest the behavior or symptom, but it requires the entire family coming together to help them through it. Even if the child is the one with the issue(s), it is important for the family to be involved to facilitate change.
