Our unique family therapy approach

Counseling that’s just only for your child can certainly be a positive and healing experience for them.  However, when they leave the counselor’s office, they’re entering back into the environment in which the problem arose and exists in the first place.  For true change to happen, it’s helpful to have your child’s primary relationships involved in the therapeutic process.  This is a Family Therapy approach to helping children & parents.

Our skilled therapists have been trained in family-systems as well as in mindfulness-based approaches.  A family-systems approach seeks to avoid blaming or diagnosing any one person because problems are seen as the result of the relationship dynamics within the system or family. Mindfulness is the ability to notice one’s experience without judgment and with curiosity.

We also have chosen our experienced therapists with great care.  The therapists at Family Ties Counseling Center know a lot about how to be in relationship.  Just as important as their education and training is their capacity to be authentic, compassionate and insightful.

If our approach appeals to you,

we’d love to hear from you
