Any psychotherapy for kids or teens will involve the family in some way. It can be parent guidance for implementing behavior change or the whole family comes in to address the presenting issues. I provide families with that opportunity to find ways to change and grow. Initial meetings with a family allows me to get a sense of the family concerns from each member's perspective.The time in my office becomes a unique opportunity to explore the problems they experience at home. This creates a safe space to try new ways of communicating and resolving conflicts.
