Family can be a great source of support, knowledge, and love. However, there are times when families are plagued by distrust, conflict, and/or trauma. No matter the situation, families have many reasons to seek counseling. Life is full of difficulties and we are often overwhelmed by financial stress, life transitions, societal pressures, and intense emotions. It can be difficult to start a healthy and open discussion among family members. A family therapist can bring a compassionate outside perspective, as well as resources and tools to develop and move forward as a healthier, happier family unit.
