Family Counseling

At Ascend Counseling & Wellness we specialize in (Family) Systems Therapy, which can effectively help the family system improve communication, better manage conflict, determine family and individual strengths, create healthy traditions, work with difficult behaviors, manage addiction, and much more. A key focus of family counseling is to discover the unhealthy patterns that exist in the family system and then help each member of the family system to do their part to change or eliminate the behaviors that are creating the unhealthy patterns.

Your family is likely doing many things right already! We can help you enhance the good stuff, and change the unhealthy stuff.
