(Family Counseling)

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” - Frederick Douglas

About Family Counseling

Problems in your family can affect all areas of family members’ lives. You might notice trouble appearing at work, at school, or in everyday interactions with other people. When it feels like the issues in your family are too big for you to handle – and aren’t getting better – it may be time to see a family therapist. Family therapy can employ techniques from cognitive therapy, interpersonal therapy, or other types of therapy. Like with other types of treatment, the techniques employed will depend on the specific problem the family reports.

Benefits of Family Counseling

Every family is a potential study in group dynamics. Each person takes on roles within the family that they act out dependably. At times these roles can be difficult and possibly dysfunctional. Family counseling can show individuals within the family how to improve their family dynamic by revealing what may not be clear at first. We welcome you to explore the road to family wellness.

How the Babemba Tribe Forgives

“In the Babemba tribe of Southern Africa, when a person acts irresponsibly or unjustly, he is placed in the centre of the village, alone and unfettered. All work ceases, and every man, woman, and child in the village gathers in a large circle around the accused individual.

Then each person in the tribe speaks to the accused, one at a time, each recalling the good things the person in the centre of the circle has done in his lifetime. Every incident, every experience that can be recalled with any detail and accuracy, is recounted. All his positive attributes, good deeds, strengths, and kindnesses are recited carefully and at length.

This tribal ceremony often lasts for several days. At the end, the tribal circle is broken, a joyous celebration takes place, and the person is symbolically and literally welcomed back into the tribe.”
