At LifeSong, we advocate for healthy and whole families. Through the attachment model, clinicians assess the needs of each unique family system evaluating what systemic, structural or relational changes need to be implemented to clinically address the goals of the family system.
We seek to ensure that each family member has the opportunity to be
heard, understood and supported in whatever growth process they are
in. Family therapy includes the whole family system, including parents,
adolescents, and children.
We believe that God designed parents to nurture and protect children difficult jobs that no one does perfectly! Through our clinical focus on attachment, LifeSong clinicians can help parents grow in deeper connection with their children as individuals experience the process of being seen, known, and loved within their family relationships.
Our team utilizes a variety of tools like sand tray, music, art, puppets, regulation strategies (mindfulness), recognition of negative thoughts, exploration of identity, and attachment related games to help families work on building healthy relationships.
Through family therapy, we are able to address issues such as:
- Divorce and separation
- Remarriage and blended families
- Developmental shifts into adolescence and young adulthood
- Parenting support
We also specialize in working with families with adult children because we believe it's never too late to work on family and relational repairs. Issues that impact families with adult children:
- Relating with in-laws
- Blended Families
- Boundary Setting
- Life-stage Transitions
In addition, members of our team can help with parenting strategies, including a program called Trust Based Relational Interventions (TBRI). This program utilizes attachment modalities to increase connection, which is proven to reduce negative behaviors. TBRI helps parents "empower, connect and correct" children and teens, helping our imperfect families work together in strategic ways.
At LifeSong, we want to help foster families to be places of security and nurturance. Maintaining the proper balance as a parent between being seen as an authority in the home while also being a safe haven is hard, but at LifeSong we're dedicated to helping you provide strong structure and guidance through a loving, caring relationship.
