Due to the collaborative nature of Capital Institute’s therapists, we are well-equipped to address the intricacies that often accompany family life.

At times, individual therapy can be enriched by incorporating couples sessions with another therapist. Alternatively, couples therapy may yield better results when one or both partners are engaged in individual therapy. Parents can find value in sessions designed to guide them in providing optimal support to their children, while children may benefit from individual therapy to cope with the effects of their parents’ marital issues. We are also equipped to facilitate the improvement of relationships between parents and adult children.

Consultations among therapists, always contingent upon the consent of all family members, can help in coordinating treatment, as can family meetings. We are also available for consultations with therapists outside our practice who are working with your family members.

As with our couples and relationship therapy, all of our family work is LGBTQIA+ affirmative.
