I am one of the few practitioners trained in Organizational Development as well as Marriage and Family Therapy, and specializing in business and co-founder partnership coaching.
Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.

What is it that causes you so much pain? Frequently our mental health is directly related to unresolved past hurts and traumas. These struggles can be from childhood and our family of origin, or perhaps they show up in the form of shame from choices we have made or choices other's have made against us. I encourage you to begin the work to overcome your negative experiences. Seek counseling if you want support and direction in gaining a positive perspective, want insight into managing difficult circumstances, or want to improve your communication or conflict resolution skills.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Walnut Creek or for a Walnut Creek family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Walnut Creek using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
