At Okerberg and Associates we take a systemic approach to working with couples and families. A systemic approach addresses problems that exist between individuals, in the patterns of communication or habits of relating. In a marriage, though both spouses benefit from personal change, the well-being of the couple may best be served when problematic patterns of relating are recognized and changed.
Family therapy can often be a powerful setting in which to promote change. During a family therapy session, the problem presented will be assessed and we will work strategically to make adjustments in family dynamics. This often includes an educational approach to family life and/or parenting skills.
