Family & Couples
The demands of our modern world have created immense pressure on families and households. With the growth of the dual-income family, each individual in the family is left with fewer and fewer resources like time, energy, and chances to regroup. The result is that families become exhausted and strained.
Bringing into balance the priorities of the individuals in a family allows them to function as a system. With this systemic approach, the family is brought together as a whole and gain requisite skills for growth.
A relationship with a partner can be one of the most rewarding relationships in our lives. But when a relationship is struggling, the impact can ripple throughout every aspect of our lives and create havoc on us.
Couples counseling facilitates a better bond between two individuals who have reached an impasse in either a situation or their relationship as a whole. Establishing communication and enabling coping mechanisms reestablishes a level playing field for both individuals to learn to support each other while caring for their own needs as well.
