Family Counseling

Family Counseling or Family Therapy is a special style of therapy that is aimed at improving family communication, functioning, and closeness.  In Family Counseling the therapist works to improve understanding among the family members, increase the trust they have in each other, and help each family member become a better version of themselves, while still being accepted and loved in spite of not being perfect. (Because none of us is perfect!)



Help for Blended Families and Stepparents

Blended families face challenges that, if worked through productively, can result in a well-adjusted family unit, while still being respectful of biological parent-child relationships.


Divorce Support and Adjustment

Many families experience separation and/or divorce.  Divorce support counseling for families helps both children and adults mange this significant life transition in a productive way.


Parenting Coaching

Kids don’t come with an instruction manual and sometimes it’s just tough to figure our what they need, and how to best help them become happy and secure.  Parenting Coaching teaches specific skills and parenting techniques that help improve your relationship with your child, improve the child’s self esteem, and help improve their behavior.
