When we work with families, we consider the whole family system. Understanding family systems help us see how the pieces of our lives fit together.
Each person in a family system plays a role in its function. Helping the family see what each member's function is and how it helps or hurts the family unit is one aspect of family counseling.
Working from a Bowen's Family Systems framework, we help families reduce cut-off and fusion while increasing engagement. Learning how to tolerate the anxiety within relationships while engaging can be a challenging task and one that is vital in the healthy functioning of a family system.
