Yes. We believe in the healing potential of human relationships and honor the integrity and dignity of every individual. We believe couples and families working together have the best chance to solve their problems and develop fulfilling lives. Our sliding fee scale enables us to offer services to people of diverse backgrounds. All FACTS therapists have completed a specialized training in the theory and practice of couples and family therapy.
The primary difference is that couples and families work together on their issues, learning new communication skills and how to interact differently during their sessions and in their lives..
FACTS therapists have expertise working with a wide variety of circumstances, symptoms, and people. Below is a partial list of the many areas in which FACTS therapists can help:
Intimacy, Sexuality, and Commitment
Remarriage, step-families, single-parent and adoptive families
Parenting Children and Adolescents
Crises such as separation, divorce, trauma, abuse, additions, relocation, job loss
Family Response to Eating Disorders
Chronic Medical Conditions
Conflicts involving money
Conflicts involving gender and/or sexual orientation
Yes, couples and family therapy work. In a recent study, consumers reported that marriage/couples/family therapists are the mental health professionals they would most likely recommend to friends. A survey conducted by AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy) found that over 98% of couples and family therapy clients rated the care they received as being good or excellent. Clients also indicated improvement in physical and emotional health, work functioning, and children’s ability to get along with others.
Research cited in a recent article in the NY Times indicates that couples sometimes wait too long to begin therapy. If destructive patterns, deep pain and disappointment become too entrenched then chances for healing can be compromised.
Family and couples therapy is provided by psychologists, social workers, and clinicians in our post graduate training program.
