Families are complex systems, made up of multiple interwoven relationships that form an intricate network of connection.
When one family member experiences challenge the entire system is impacted, as are each of the indivduals and individual relationships that comprise the family system. This is also the case when the family struggles with a life stressor, a loss, or a change in structure such as a divorce or the creation of a blended family. At these times, family therapy can provide an essential tool for families to examine the way the system is functioning, regain a sense of equilibrium, and enhance connection.
