We are here to help

Family Therapy

Families are complex, dynamic relationships – and like all complex relationships, they sometimes need help with strengthening communication, learning, emotional regulation and managing boundaries. Family Therapy can help. At Sage, Family Therapy is carried out by experienced and trained professionals who blend compassion, patience and proven techniques to help families and family members improve relationships, resolve conflicts and establish positive and healthy habits in a non-judgmental environment where every member feels comfortable and safe.

Family Therapy is a specialized branch of psychotherapy in which family members reflect on, repair and improve their relationships, and learn to communicate better. The process is led by a specialized therapist with extensive experience in Family Therapy, and it typically begins with a series of meetings with the family and its members, either together or in separate groups such as parents, siblings or even individuals alone. Once a therapeutic relationship is established and the specific needs and goals of each member is explored, the therapist uses proven techniques to help address issues such as communication, interpersonal dynamics, and members’ understanding of the needs and experiences of others.

As with all therapies, the process is goal-directed – with goals and outcomes defined based on the unique needs and experience of each family and its members.

Who can benefit from it?

Family Therapy may be helpful in any situation affecting the relationships between family members, including if:
