Family therapy focuses on relationships within the family unit. The family is seen as a system, rather than the sum of its individual members. Family therapy is used to approach a variety of therapeutic goals. Rather than viewing problems and issues as caused by a particular family member, family therapy helps to identify the ways that relationship and individual problems are caused and maintained by the family dynamics. Family therapy can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills, parenting conflicts, changing roles, and school-based and peer issues.

At Pittsburgh Psychotherapy Associates, our goal is to bring families closer together by providing a safe and open forum for every member of the family to be heard and understood. Our experienced therapists will assist families with designing and maintaining a plan of action that emphasizes respect, dignity and cooperation. Families will discover new paths to communication and build on their strengths as a means to create their own unique formula for wellness.

In addition to family therapy, we offer co-parenting counseling to offer support to nontraditional families. So, whether your family is in the process or a divorce, separation, breakup, or well afterward, you may need some assistance. When children are involved, it is no easy matter. Our experienced therapists can work with you and your family on effective ways to parent, communicate, and get along "for the sake of the kids." Whether you are together or not, your children benefit from seeing parents who are able to function positively and have a cordial and collaborative relationship.
