Family relationships can be our greatest source of strength as well as our greatest stress. Family therapy allows every member of the family to be heard and to take and active role in making change possible. Improving communication styles can reduce conflicts that may have been longstanding, and can lead to forgiveness related to old hurts and resentments. "Family" means whoever is important to you: children, adoloscents, and parents living together; adults with their parents or in-laws; adult siblings; and anyone who plays a significant role in your life. Often, family members have a sense of hopelessness or helplessness regarding their family dynamics. However, family therapy can help each member find better understand the motiviations of the other members, and learn to redefine their roles within the family system. Dr. Hunter can help you and your family learn how to engage with each other in a more productive pattern, leading to truly happy interactions between you and the people that most matter to you.
