Family Therapy is a kind of counseling which can help two or more people of a house hold gain tools and understanding so that they are better able to support and relate to each other. Some common reasons that people seek out family counseling is that they have been disagreeing or fighting, someone in the family is struggling with a mental health or medical diagnosis, they are estranged, there has been abuse, someone is struggling with addiction, there has been a death in the family, managing divorce, remediation and co-parenting. In times of greater stress, we need each other most, yet stressful situations can also exhaust the emotional and psychological resources of the family system. Therapy can help to ease the transition through life circumstances.
