A New Day Counseling Center

Working with Families:
I subscribe to the belief that every family is a unique social system with its own structure and patterns of communication. These patterns are determined by many factors, including the make-up of the family, the caregivers' beliefs and values, the personalities of all family members, and the influence of the extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.). As a result of these variables, each family develops its own unique personality, which is powerful and affects all of its members.
During therapy sessions, the family's strengths are used to help them handle their problems. All members take responsibility for problems and while some family members may need to change their behavior more than others, no one member of the family is viewed as "the problem". Usually, if one family member is exhibiting symptoms, stress levels will lessen with improved family functioning. The better the family functions, the lower the stress level for all family members, even the person exhibiting the symptoms.
Your family can learn to enhance communication skills, positively resolve conflicts, cope with anger issues, and learn self-esteem enhancement skills, as needed. My role is to help families like yours develop strategies that work - strategies that are based on your unique family structure. It may seem like a difficult task to find a therapist but...
There is no better time to call   407-260-6181  than now to schedule an appointment to resolve the conflicts and end the strain that may seemingly be tearing your family apart...
