Family Counseling Services - Los Altos Psychotherapy


About Family Counseling

Family counseling is a specialized form of counseling that focuses on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and enhancing family relationships. It recognizes that the well-being of individuals is directly linked to the overall health of the family unit.

By addressing the family as a whole, rather than concentrating solely on individual members, family counseling can help families develop strategies to effectively cope with the challenges they face and create a nurturing and supportive environment.

At Los Altos Psychotherapy, we provide family counseling services for a wide range of issues, including:

1. Relationship and communication difficulties: Effective communication is essential for healthy family functioning. We can help improve communication skills and facilitate open and honest dialogue among family members to reduce family conflict.

2. Parent-child conflicts: Parenting can be challenging, and conflicts between parents and children are not uncommon. We can help you learn to reduce conflict and strengthen the parent-child relationship.

3. Blended family issues: Bringing together two families can be a complex process. Our therapists have experience working with blended families and can help you address the unique challenges related to family dynamics that arise when blending different family systems.

4. Divorce and separation: Divorce or separation can have a profound impact on the entire family. Our family therapists can provide support and guidance throughout this difficult transition, helping families adjust to the changes and develop healthy co-parenting strategies.


5. Grief and loss: Losing a loved one can be devastating for a family. Our family therapists are trained to help families navigate the grieving process and find ways to cope with their loss together.

6. Substance abuse and addiction: Substance abuse and addiction can have detrimental effects on the family. We offer counseling services to help families understand addiction, establish healthy boundaries, and support recovery.

7. Mental health issues: Mental health concerns, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder, can affect the entire family. We provide a safe and supportive environment where families can learn coping strategies and improve overall well-being.

Our Approach to Family Counseling

At Los Altos Psychotherapy, every family is unique and requires an individualized approach to counseling. Our family therapists are trained in various evidence-based counseling techniques, many of which are proprietary and remarkably effective, having been developed by our founder, Tracy Greene, over the course of her career in a search for better, more effective methods of helping her clients heal.
