Family is the institution through which we receive our first care, the foundations of our education –moral as well as formal – and is made up of the people with whom we interact for most of our lives. Our existence within a family lays the basis upon which we construct our identity, our self-perception and worldview, a foundation that leaves its imprint on our lives.
There are some conflicts that families face together, as a group. These conflicts are generally external to the family group and affect the family as a whole, as well as each individual that makes up that family.
On the other hand, there also exist conflicts that occur within the family and between its members.
I work with families to help them improve their communication and to develop the skills and resources they need to face both external and internal issues in a way that enhances each member’s well being, as well as that of the family system as a whole.
