Family Counseling

A person with a mental illness may not think family therapy can help. On the contrary, this form of therapy can be effective in addressing specific issues affecting family members. It is an ideal counseling method for supporting family members as they adjust to their loved one’s condition. Additionally, it can also improve a person’s chance of getting better.
