I provide one-on-one as well as family counseling with children and teens. Parents may also choose to attend without their child in order to address parenting and family dynamics.
Although they are not our only influence—our lives are so complexly woven into biological, psychological, and social systems—family relationships are ground zero for developmental processes. Thus, regardless who attends, the family is never emotionally far from the scene.
I prefer to involve multiple family members, yet families always have choices in how we plan for session attendance. Sometimes these preferences are based on careful relationship sensitivities, guiding values, or simply scheduling logistics.
