Erma Bombeck, the comedian, once described families “as the ties that bind…..and gag.” Families, of course can be much more than this –they can also be the place for security, love, growth, and healing. Sometimes families get off track. That is where family therapy comes in.
Family therapy can help parents develop and strengthen the ability to manage anger and frustration, develop more effective parenting skills and help their children succeed. It can also help families work a 12 Step Recovery program when a family member is recovering from a substance dependency.
