San Francisco Family Therapy and Counseling
Traditional, Blended, and Alternative Families
Are you experiencing problems at home or with extended family
members? Has there been conflict and discomfort in the
family? Are there differences that cannot be resolved?
Family therapy is an important opportunity to address crisis,
stress, conflict or loss that may be affecting the family. Family
dynamics involve communication style and interaction that may not be
working. If there is something happening that is causing stress
or discomfort, or if there is difficulty talking about important
things, it can be helpful to get an outside perspective to understand
and work through the problems and resolve differences.
Family therapy can be with a parent and child, a sibling
relationship, and even with in-laws or extended family. It would
include whoever you consider family. The basic idea about family
therapy is that the family
a system, which means that what is happening to one person in
the family system will have an effect on others in the family
Family therapy provides an opportunity and a place for each
to come together and work through issues that are affecting each other.
I work with traditional, blended, and alternative families, and can help with conflict mediation, learning how to talk with each other so that you can be heard, and developing more effective ways to cope with stress.
