We believe that every family member has a right to be heard. We give special consideration to your child’s voice. In many families experiencing separation or conflict, all too often the voice of the child goes unheard. Parents are sometimes too consumed with their own personal issues to properly hear and understand their childrens’ needs.
Every family is unique. In the assessment phase of our process, we explore with you what we think is in your family’s best interests. We then support you in designing a carefully structured plan to give your family the resources, tools and skills it needs to navigate the sometimes painful journey through the Court system.
Systemic psychotherapists are mental health professionals who specialize in addressing problems that arise from the complex interplay of social, cultural, and systemic factors in individuals, families, and larger systems. Unlike other forms of psychotherapy that focus on individual psychology, systemic psychotherapy is grounded in the understanding that individuals are inseparable from their broader social contexts and that problems often result from systemic dysfunction.
Systemic psychotherapists work with individuals, couples, and families to identify patterns of behavior and communication that contribute to problems. They use a variety of techniques to help clients understand and change these patterns, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
In addition to working with individuals and families, systemic psychotherapists also collaborate with larger systems, such as schools, hospitals, and community organizations, to identify and address systemic problems that affect the people they serve. They may work with teams to improve communication and collaboration, create programs to address systemic issues, and advocate for systemic change.
Systemic psychotherapy is a highly specialized field that requires extensive training and ongoing education. Systemic psychotherapists often hold advanced degrees in psychology, social work, or a related field and may pursue additional training and certification in systemic psychotherapy.
