Building Stronger Families
Do you feel like your family is disconnected?
Is a family member struggling which is creating family discord?
Are you unsure how to handle things?
Do you need help?
There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of your family, and that includes addressing the dynamics and interaction of each of its members. In selecting my family counseling services, you and your loved ones can learn to develop the skills needed to foster better communication and resolve problems and conflicts effectively and positively.
Common Family Counseling Goals are:
- To communicate more effectively and meaningfully
- To guide the family through a traumatic experience
- To resolve problems and conflict
- To create a more positive family environment
Family counseling is offered to families to provide emotional support, education and guidance for a variety of concerns today’s families may face. I often work with the entire nuclear family, viewing them as a unit or a system. Relationships emerge from this system that influence development and behavior of all the family members. An individual member of the family may receive attention during the therapy session to address problem behavior or provide support for hardships or struggles that affect them.
Modern day life stressors may be burdening your family. You may be struggling to cope and it is affecting family relationships. I will teach you how to communicate with each other, set boundaries and work on solving your problems together. I can help you rediscover and find comfort within your family.
“Mary Anne was referred to us by another family who saw her for family counseling. My husband and I were feeling frustrated and scared about our son’s behaviors and were looking for guidance on how to handle things. We met with Mary Anne weekly for a long while. She listened to us, showed concern and provided the guidance and we needed. Mary Anne also provided us with the community resources we needed to help us, and our son.”
