Just as with individuals, families are also under the many pressures of daily life in a rapidly changing world. None of us live in a vacuum. We are all affected by all of the individuals in our lives and this is magnified when we live together. At Engage Psychological Services, we have found that it is often important to work with the family to gain a better understanding of the way a family interacts.
In Family Therapy open communication between family members is modeled. A safe and supportive environment is established, and each member of the family is given an opportunity to voice his or her view of the family’s strengths and weaknesses. We work to help the family re- establish appropriate roles, boundaries and healthy communication.
