How It Works

Family therapy treats symptoms of relational distress and anxiety between and among family members producing greatly improved outcomes for relational health and mental health. It utilizes a framework of family and systemic therapy including talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness (MBCT, aka, mindfulness behavioral cognitive therapy), and narrative therapy. Relational problems and problems regarding sexuality may overlap and be treated separately or together if needed or wanted.

“The overall goal (of counseling) is to help family members become ‘systems experts’ who could know (their) family system so well that the family could readjust itself without the help of an expert.” – Murray Bowen
