FAMILY THERAPY

Pacific MFT Network is dedicated to providing outstanding service to all of our clients.  Family therapy is a proven way to reduce distress and conflict in a family by improving the way family members interact with each other.  Ideally, having all family members (affected by the problem) in the room is desired, but that is not always possible or necessary. What makes family therapy powerful is its perspective or framework, which views problems as patterns or systems that need adjusting.  Because the focus is taken off of a particular person in the family as the cause of difficulty, family therapy is often referred to as a “strengths based treatment.”

“Family” can be defined as anyone who plays a long-term supportive role in one’s life, which may not mean blood relations or family members in the same household. Family relationships are viewed as important for good mental health, regardless of whether all family members are participating in the therapy.   It is an ideal counseling method for helping family members adjust to an immediate family member struggling with an addiction, medical issue, or mental health diagnosis and it is also extremely helpful for improving overall communication and reducing conflict.
