Couples come to therapy generally due to an impasse. Partners may be feeling stuck in a pattern of conflict and frustration and the more you try to fix the conflict the worse the reactivity becomes, leading to disconnection and feelings of helplessness in solving problems. Couples feel angry, defensive, alone and locked in struggle. We at Wallace Family Therapy help you to articulate vulnerabilities and manage your life transitions and challenges more fluidly so you may move together beyond rupture to repair.
Parenting & Family Therapy
Families are continuously facing challenges as parents and children travel through life stages. Family Therapy is often short term and may involve the entire family or just those who are willing to participate. Reasons families come to therapy together are to improve communication skills, respect and empathy, sibling rivalry, understand adoption challenges, negotiate teen independence and dependence and navigate through divorce.
We help families to develop strategies to resolve conflict, foster communication and endure connection.
Being a parent is challenging work but can be a fulfilling and pleasurable journey. We can often focus so much on our children “growing up” that we lose sight that we are changing too and have thoughts of failure, confusion and so many questions. Parent(s) often come to therapy feeling defeated, ignored and overwhelmed.
Parenting Therapy sheds light on the challenging emotional, cognitive, behavioral and social aspects of child and adolescent development and helps you learn and implement strategies that reduce conflict and also foster family relationships of enduring respect, trust and affection.
Group Psychotherapy gives children, adolescents and adults a nurturing peer environment in which to share emotional experiences, find acceptance, a sense of belonging, gain insight and develop alternative ways of responding to normal developmental issues and conflict.
Studies have shown group therapy to be a powerful catalyst for personal growth and one of the most effective ways to treat some of the more prevalent adolescent behavioral responses to anxiety, depression and trauma — such as self-injury and eating disorders.
Wallace Family Therapy works collaboratively with other health care providers and offers referral services for nutritional counseling, psychiatric consultation, medication management and medical care to affiliated physicians including pediatricians and internists. When a higher level of care is necessary, we collaborate with and coordinate in-patient, residential, and day-treatment programs.
