"I made an appointment for my at-risk teen for which we waited almost 3 weeks for. We showed up for our appointment and after banging on the door for 5 minutes finally were met by a lady who told us Helen was sick. No phone call, no e-mail, nothing! What a terrible representation of professionalism! She could have called us and let us know if she was really sick. I cannot believe a therapist would act in this manner. "

What is Family Therapy?
Family therapy is sometimes also called family counseling or marriage and family therapy. It is a form of mental health care and therapy that treats a couple or entire family as a unit, paying special attention to how the members of the family interact with each other. Each family has a unique personality, communication style, and unique problems they face together. In family therapy, all members of the family attend counseling sessions as a group, and together they learn how to identify conflicts within and without the family, as well as how to communicate better and problem-solve together.
Some topics commonly addressed in family therapy include:
Adoption or Infertility
Family therapists may work in group practices, private practices, schools, or hospitals. They work with families of all different kinds to help them live together as a stronger unit.
