Are you going through a season of life that you do not feel prepared for?
Are you finding it difficult to connect with your spouse or teenager?
Does it seem like you are fighting the same battles at home, or work with no change in the outcome?
Are you preparing to send your son or daughter off to college and feel uneasy about what comes next, or worry that they are not prepared?
If you answered yes to any of these questions let’s work together to get to the root of the problem so that you can begin to move forward in a way that is restorative for you and for the people that matter most to you.
My training in marriage and family therapy has equipped me with the skills and expertise needed to look at your situation from what is called a “family systems” perspective. What that means essentially is that in a family there is not “I/me”, there is “us/we” and as such we influence one another in ways that may not always be evident, much less understandable.
Here are just a few of the areas that marriage and family therapy from a systems perspective can be helpful:
- Familial/premarital/marital relationships
- Parenting through ages and stages
- Transitioning to college vs “failure to launch”
- Transitioning to the “empty nest “
- Concerns related to retirement/aging
Marriage and family therapy can help to improve communication skills, define roles, increase mutual respect, and help kids develop into healthy individuals.
