Psychological Wellness Center understands families thrive when individuals feel comfortable, respected, and connected. The quality of family relationships often set the stage for the quality of the rest of the relationships in a person’s life. We provide a safe environment for family members to openly discuss issues and be guided to a place of mutual understanding and respect. Our psychologists will give your family the help to work through issues no matter how big or small.
Family therapy provides an opportunity in the week for the family to come together to discuss personal matters in a safe environment. Insight and constructive feedback is provided to help the family understand the patterns that have developed. Sessions serve as a forum to allow each family member to feel and be heard and have their needs respected in order to work toward conflict resolution and change. Work done in therapy is then translated to daily life and practiced between sessions. Ultimately, the goal is to build empathy between family members, set and maintain realistic boundaries, build respect, understand dynamics, and improve relationships.
