You should expect that Genuine Way Family Therapy takes mental health concerns seriously. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Unfortunately, it’s common for people to brush aside their mental health concerns or mental illness, thinking that what they are going through is ‘a phase’ or simply ‘will pass.’ While life can throw us curve-balls that sometimes do pass, your concerns will always be encountered with open ears and respect.
If you are a parent and you have concerns about your child’s well-being, you can expect that your voice will be heard. Parents frequently discuss feeling alienated and without direction when their children are facing concerns such as adversity, trauma or defiance. Together we will discuss goals for your child and family and address how change can begin to be implemented.
You can also expect that change is most frequently encountered with twists, turns and bumps along the way. We will work as a team to navigate these roadblocks and focus on achieving your therapy goals!
