Family therapy is an approach that acknowledges that when one family member is suffering, it impacts everybody. Everybody has a voice and family therapy helps members to use it to communicate to each other more effectively.
Family therapy may be shorter term in nature or meet only as needed.
Family therapy is done with different members of the family unit, but often includes everybody coming in to the therapy room together.
Alternatively, family therapy may work mostly with the parents to support them understanding how to more effectively parent their unique teen.
Because of my extensive work with adolescents, I often provide the family therapy service while the teen is in individual or group therapy with a different therapist.
Families come in all shapes and sizes. I work with many special families who don't look like other families in their area, and I would want to understand how your family works.
