  • Addiction or mental health condition
  • Children with behavior or school problems
  • Death in the family
  • Family relocation
  • Life-threatening or chronic illness
  • Military deployment or extended absences
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Parental conflict
  • Sibling rivalry

Families in Transition

Families in transition will benefit from family therapy as a way to manage change positively and develop techniques to ease tension and stress often associated with adjustment to a new family structure. Examples of families in transition are:

  • Adoptive Families
    Traditional, LGBT and Single parents
  • Blended Families
  • Long Distance Parenting
  • Separation and Divorce
  • Step-parenting

Family therapy is active and solution-focused. Your family therapist in San Diego will help you explore your family’s ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions. You may discuss family roles, rules, and behavior patterns that contribute to the conflict and outline ways to work through these issues. Your family will learn how to best support one another and develop patterns of relating that foster a sense of understanding and togetherness.
