What to expect from Family Counseling

Family therapy is designed to examine the important relationships in our lives. During your initial session, you will describe the problem that brings you to seek assistance from a family therapist. Your therapist will ask questions about how the problem began, how it affects you and your relationships, and how you would like it to be different. Your therapist may also ask questions about other aspects of your life to gain a better understanding of you as an individual and your family or other significant relationships in your life as well as your inherent strengths and weaknesses. In future sessions, your therapist will offer suggestions and ask questions designed to help you access your natural skills and abilities to create desired changes in your life
