*Being the Kid ,Tween, Teen
At times, our family can represent our most difficult relationships. Since they can bring up so many emotions, discussing these issues can be taxing. The significant impact we feel from family challenges can lead us to tread so lightly, and weigh our words so carefully, that communicating at home can feel as if we are "walking on eggshells."
Our family affects who we are and who we become.
We learn our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world from them.
Clients choosing to seek healthier, family relationships or skills to manage challenging family situations can benefit from family therapy.
