Counseling for Couples and Families

Sara Phillips, MS, LCMFT

Family Therapy
Family therapy can help strengthen family bonds and relationships, develop effective parenting strategies, and allow children and adolescents to feel heard and understood. 

Whether you are dealing with a transition, such as death, divorce, or remarriage, struggling with a wayward child or adolescent, or looking to strengthen your parenting skills, family therapy can help you to create a peaceful and stable home environment as well as to reconnect with your loved ones. 

As a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist, I work with families to re-establish boundaries, implement structure, and develop effective communication skills that allow family members to connect with one another in session and continue to work on healthy relationships while at home.

When should I seek
family therapy?


Some signs that you may want to seek family therapy include:

  • When there is a change in family structure or you are adjusting to a new situation, such as moving, changing jobs, introducing a new child to the family, or dealing with the death of a loved one.
  • When your children are at a new stage and your former parenting strategies are no longer effective.
  • When you feel family members are working against one another and not as a team.

Please call or email me to set up an appointment or to discuss if family therapy is a good option to help you meet your family's goals.
