Family therapy is based on the premise that all psychological problems reflect a dysfunction in the “family system.” The term “dysfunction” means that members of a group or system are working together in a way that is harmful to some or all of its members. At Concierge & VIP Counseling, we request the active participation of as many family members as possible and focuses on gaining an understanding of the roles and relationships within the family. Family therapy seeks to achieve a balance between the needs of the individual and those of the larger family system. We specialize in working with adoptive families and may take a different approach than the traditional model, using the sessions to incorporate cognitive-behavioral therapy, such as anger control and stress management. These techniques have been proven effective in improving individual and family functioning. Family therapy may not be productive for children who have experienced trauma and are having trouble with emotional regulation. Your therapist will provide recommendations after a thorough evaluation.
