"Are you looking to better understand yourself within your world, relationships and family? Maybe you are feeling constantly out-of-sorts due to family, work, life demands or past events, and ready to "figure things out," by taking a closer look at your life and background. Walking through life feeling uprooted, exhausted, lost and not your best self is difficult. Having a warm & affirming environment where you can freely express and explore your world can help you to build resiliency and empower yourself to make more fulfilling choices. "

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in 94609 using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit.
