  • Is your family reorganizing because of separation or divorce?
  • Is communication between family members “high conflict” more often than not?
  • Are you looking to strengthen bonds and communicate more easily with your child?

Wellspring clinicians are trained to address a wide range of emotional, cognitive and behavioral issues for children, adults, couples and families. Whether your child is struggling with a behavioral issue, or your whole family is going through a major transition, everyone in the family can be impacted, and it’s not always clear how to move forward. During difficult transitions, we sometimes tend to blame one person or issue for the inevitable communication challenges that can arise within a family.

Wellspring therapists are trained to approach the family as a system, so no one person feels blamed for causing the problems in the family. Family therapy can be a valuable opportunity for family members to express their feelings and find new ways of communicating and getting their emotional needs met. Family therapy can also help to strengthen the bonds between family members. After an intake meeting, we might decide that the most beneficial treatment would be to see the whole family together, meet with individual members, provide parent coaching, or some combination thereof.

If  you or your family decide to move forward with therapy after an initial consultation, your clinician will work with you to develop an appropriate course of treatment.  Therapy may be a brief process of several sessions to deal with an immediate issue, or it may be a more extended process to deal with more complicated or entrenched patterns that interfere with day to day family functioning.
