Like couples, families come to therapy at every stage. You might be considering whether to become parents, or grappling with infertility, or adoption. If your child is small, you may want to talk through basic parenting styles and expectations. School aged children or teenagers may prompt your family to come in to address issues of discipline, sibling conflict, or school performance. Divorce, re-marriage and family blending can all require support in evolving a new form of family. Teens and young adults can use therapy to forge an individual identity, while maintaining a sense of connection with family. And in mid-life you may want family therapy to talk with siblings about the past, or about current concerns with aging parents.
