The purpose of family therapy is to help families work through challenges, issues, and life’s stressors together by identifying strengths and changing patterns of behavior that are no longer effective in order to improve relationships and functioning for all the members of the family unit. Studies have shown that family therapy is an important part of the treatment process for adults and adolescents who are struggling with eating disorders, substance abuse, and other emotional or behavioral issues. Our therapists strive to create a safe environment where all members of the family can feel heard and understood.
