CONSULTATION WITH ADULT FAMILIES

Family members affect each other in profound ways, and should be one of our greatest sources of strength and comfort.  Life cycle transitions or unfinished family business may keep adult family members from supporting each other.  To enhance family life, I offer consultation/evaluation and family therapy.
