Kids act as barometers and frequently exhibit emotional or behavioral difficulties when family problems occur. Each family member’s problems can impact others in the household so that even very young children may be reactive. Families may benefit from therapy to address relationships among family members, parenting challenges, entrenched power struggles, separation, divorce, and blended family issues. Family therapy can clarify and reduce conflicts, dramatically improving family functioning. Family therapy helps to change patterns and access strengths within the family.
