Family therapy differs from individual therapy in a very unique way. This is because in family therapy the focus is on the entire family system and how each person contributes to the relationships. Each member plays a role in the family and therapy can help redefine or define for the first time what those roles are.

Couple and relationship therapy can be an effective approach when couples are struggling with communication and connection issues. The goal is often to recognize, and to better manage or reconcile, troublesome differences and repeating patterns that cause stress on the relationship.

Family and Couple Therapy
Often times personal and relationship roles, goals, and expectations get confused, overlooked, or misperceived, which can lead to misunderstanding and resentment in families and relationships. Therapy can help you to define these roles, goals, and expectations for yourself and your partner or family.
