Family Counseling the Whole Family Can Love
Family counseling brings one or more family members into the counseling session in order to help the patient through the relationship that you have as a family.
We also specialize in additional family therapies including Parent-Child Interaction Therapy and Play Therapy.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for young children (ages 2-8) with behavioral problems.
PCIT is conducted through "coaching" sessions during which you and your child are in a playroom while the therapist is in an observation room watching you interact with your child through a one-way mirror and/or live video feed. You wear an ear bud through which the therapist provides in-the-moment coaching on skills you are learning to manage your child's behavior.
PCIT is completed across two treatment phases. The first phase of treatment focuses on establishing warmth in your relationship with your child through learning and applying skills proven to help children feel calm, secure in their relationships with their parents, and good about themselves.
