What is family therapy

What is family therapy and can you help my teenager?

Family therapy involves at least one person under the age of 18 and other family members (e.g., parents, siblings, step-parents) who are living together and would like to make some changes that benefit everyone. In family therapy, members of the family meet together with the Psychologist to come up with some ideas about what could be better and what each family member can do to contribute to things getting better. Therapy with teenagers and younger children works best when other family members are involved and willing to make changes that will benefit everyone. I can probably help your teenager, but more importantly, I can also probably help you help your teenager.
