Family Therapy in Valencia
Building Stronger Familial Bonds
The relationship you have with your children, whether they are school-age or independent adults, can be a source of both joy and stress. If you are feeling misunderstood and disconnected from the members of your family, know that you are not alone. Family therapy will help strengthen bonds and bring comfort and harmony to your home.
I have experience counseling people of all ages in both individual and group settings. I am trained and experienced in identifying problems and helping people find better ways to communicate. Family conflicts are stressful and it can feel like there’s no way to find a resolution. I am here to tell you that there is always a way to find a way forward. Sometimes you just need help getting there.

Our Differences Help Define Us
You never know what you’re going to get with family. Whether you share the same genes or built a family without blood ties, family is a collection of very different people with varying perspectives, beliefs, aspirations, and anxieties. These differences can sometimes make it difficult to communicate with each other, but they don’t have to.
Learning more about your family and what matters to them will help you build better relationships with each other. Likewise, when a personal tragedy occurs, like the loss of a loved one or a divorce, strengthening these bonds will help you share in your grief together and find a way forward.
Some events that prompt families to seek counseling include:
- A hostile or violent argument between family members
- Substance abuse issues
- Moving to a new city
- Living through a natural disaster
