What to expect in Family Therapy


Your family therapy will begin with an intake appointment with your therapist.  Your therapist will ask questions to gain an understanding of your family’s experiences, worldviews, strengths, concerns, needs, and relationship dynamics.

It will be important for your therapist to learn more about each person’s perspectives and needs in the family.  After gathering this information about your family, they will work together with you and your family to decide which areas you would like to work on in therapy. 

For many families, therapy sessions are scheduled on a weekly or biweekly basis for 45-60 minutes.  The length of treatment varies significantly, depending on the symptoms and goals for the family.
