Marriage and Family Therapy

What is Marriage and Family Therapy?

Families facing difficult times do not need to do it alone. Marriage and family therapy is an option to help improve communication, strengthen relationships, and treat illnesses. 


Marriage and family therapists assess, diagnose and provide a variety of psychotherapeutic techniques.  They may provide premarital counseling, relationship counseling, child counseling, and separation or divorce counseling.  

Marriage and family therapists treat a wide range of issues and conditions. Some of these include:

  • Anger

  • Anxiety

  • Depression
