FPFS offers therapy to assist people in dealing with the challenging dynamics of relationships, including therapy to address couples and family relationship issues.
For couples, therapy can be helpful, whether you are considering separation or seeking improved intimacy and understanding. During therapy, the relationship is the focus, although each partner should also expect to focus on his or her own self-improvement and self-awareness. You and your partner will, among other things, address underlying communication patterns, resulting in more effective and efficient problem resolution and a deeper and more satisfying relationship.
Families (one- or two-parent households with children) often have their own unique relational and communication challenges. FPFS’s trained therapists will help your family thrive by sensitively and effectively helping you explore and address your unique familial situation, issues, and challenges.
Fees for family or couples therapy are generally higher than those for individual therapy.
