Family therapy is often recommended when the challenges faced are impacting the entire family system or relationships within the family unit. Family therapy looks at the system as a whole rather than pointing the finger at any one individual. It is interactive, supportive, and a safe environment to work through family conflicts while processing and problem-solving effectively.
When beginning therapy, it is important to understand the client's goals and create a plan that feels comfortable to both the client and therapist. Therefore, a new client/family will have a 1.5 hour initial session to establish this plan and ensure services are a good fit. Ongoing therapy sessions run between 50-60 minutes and typically are weekly or biweekly.
