Strategic Family Therapy

Strategic family therapy combines two major therapeutic theories – strategic therapy and family therapy. This kind of therapy differs from other family therapy strategies in that it is a highly structured method of treatment rather than free forming. The goal is to plan, execute strategically, and measure outcomes to help solve inner-familial problems. Each member of the family might have different things they need to work on, such as:

  • Communication Styles
  • Anger Management
  • Cultural Barriers
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Empathy Training

Co-Parenting Counseling

Co-parenting can be messy, awkward, and just plain complicated. Unfortunately, no one gives you instructions on how to co-parent after you and your partner separate. Based on your family’s needs, your therapist will help you work through various aspects of your relationship with each other and your children. Some examples of these are:

  • How to talk to your kids about the divorce
  • How to Handel Pick-ups & Drop-offs
  • How to interact without a fight breaking out
  • How to reduce stressors you be intentionally or unintentionally putting on one another
  • Talking through the legal side of divorce
  • How to treat being a co-parent like a business

Play Therapy

Play therapy builds on the natural way that children learn about themselves and their relationship to the world. Play therapy has proven to help children with various social, emotional, behavioral, and learning problems. They learn about being more responsible for their behaviors and develop more successful coping strategies. Through play therapy, children learn:

  •  How to Communicate with others
  • Express Feelings
  • Modify Behaviors
  • Develop Problem-Solving Skills
  • A variety of ways of relating to others
