Family Counseling

Maintaining marital and family balance is challenging.  As children age, discipline must change to promote healthy growth and decision making skills. Parenting, while experiencing  lifestyle change or crisis is especially trying for the family.  Family counseling is offered as an adjunct additional service to individual counseling, it is not offered as a separate service.  If you have recognized the need for help in this area, call (972) 522-8448 today.

If you are in a mental health crisis, call 911 for immediate assistance.  

To be covered by your insurance, couples and family therapy has to be medically necessary.  Therefore, I offer this service as an adjunct to individual therapy that requires a diagnosis.  The cash  rate starts at $100.00 per 60 minute session.  Additional fees are based upon services needed, length of session and the complexity of your case.  Please keep in mind, that if you need a report for court, expert testimony or reporting to a third party;  I do not offer these services. I'll be happy to help you find the experts in this field. 

Like a tradition, positive and negative behavior can be passed down generation to generation.  Couples and Family therapy can help break destructive life patterns by providing a safe place to identify and discuss problems. 

Healthy families recognize differences in opinions are inevitable, listen to one another, and work together.  

Family boundaries and rules are clear and consistent so members know what to expect.  

Unhealthy families may experience the following:

- Increased conflicts over parental discipline

- Parental or teen alcohol & drug abuse

- Isolation, withdrawal, or avoidance of each other

- Inability to solve problems

Family counseling provides a safe place to communicate, work together, and implement a plan for growth.
