Gently or directly, and with humor and guidance, your family therapist helps you to identify roles and dynamics that reinforce maladaptive as well as adaptive patterns of behavior.

With everyone on board, we can work to “rewrite the script,’ so to speak. In this fashion, family members shift their attitudes, perceptions and behaviors in a manner that results in positive outcome for the presenting patient.

Family sessions are an opportunity to safely express emotions and needs while learning to do so in a more effective manner. Family members learn how to be active listeners, how to validate and affirm each other and how to make room for differences.

It is important for the family therapist to establish comfort and safety so each family member can be seen and heard and in order for each member to take responsibility as they learn to acknowledge ways to improve for the sake of each other.
