Family & Marriage TherapyInvest In Your Family & Marriage
Family and Marriage
Someone once said – “Perfect families are like the Blue Mountains (in NSW Australia). They look Blue, but only at a distance.
When we get to know families, there are inevitable differences and issues. When we get closer to the Blue Mountains, we see that they aren’t blue at all!
All families work with some level of dysfunctionality. What sets “Blue Mountain” families apart from the rest is their meaningful communication, compromise, and support from resources available to them.
Our families influence who we are and who we become, for better and for worse. Whether we realise it or not, the way we are is often because of our family and the experiences we had with them while growing up. Whether you are in a healthy family or a dysfunctional one, family therapy offers a path towards developing or maintaining a healthy, functional family.
Our team of experienced therapists can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.
