The Family Studies Center offers therapy to individuals, couples, and families – many of whom suffer with child and adolescent problems, marital/partner issues, blended family troubles, multigenerational concerns, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and medical illnesses. Our specialty is couple and family therapy. Our work is driven by a belief in connection, relatedness, and self-determination. Our therapy principles focus on strength, hope, and resiliency.
A sub-specialty of the Family Studies Center is medical family therapy, which has a specific focus on patients and family members dealing with chronic illnesses or disabilities, and the impact these challenges have on everyone.
Family Studies Center has a flat fee of $20 per session. We do not accept insurance. Evening hours are available.
