The idea of family is one that translates to union and solidarity but what happens when communication breaks and the idea of family changes into one of division and separation?
Being part of a family is also being part of a group, a group of individuals who differ in personalities and perception. Most of the time, families do not intend to cause harm, but when lines of communication are closed and interpretations are created conflict occurs.
Family therapy helps participants identify and understand the patterns of communication and triggers of conflict. In my work with families, I offer the family a safe space where they can address difficult topics and are encouraged to reach healthy agreements. I aim to find the strengths of each individual so that they can reach a common ground.
