Family Therapy in Brooklyn NY


Family can be an integral part of our lives. It can provide a sense of security and belonging we need to cultivate our social and emotional selves. While familial relationships are often the longest and closest relationships a person has, they can also be the most fraught. It can be a challenge to address negative patterns, hurt feelings, and deep-seated resentment that can develop over the years. Family therapy in Brooklyn NY with Williamsburg Therapy Group can help you develop the ability to communicate effectively, work through conflicts, and strengthen relationships.


What is family therapy?


Family therapy includes a variety of psychotherapy that family members attend together to improve their relationships. Family systems are complex relationships that can be thrown out of balance by a number of issues. Often these conflicts cannot be resolved within the family itself, and an outside mediator is needed to restore balance. A therapist can provide the structure to help family members recognize their own contribution to an issue and suggest changes that can improve the relationship. Our elite team of therapists offer the security and insights for these bonds to flourish.
