What is Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT)? Marriage and Family Therapy has grown out of psychological and systems theory practices and is centered on client(s)’s well-being, strengths for individual, couple, family, groups, and community; therefore, utilizing influences and resources for the supportive goals of creating cohesiveness and thriving for relational functionality by focusing on interactive patterns. Marriage and Family Therapy uses family systems therapy, multicultural approaches, relational life cycle patterns, multigenerational themes, narrative, emotionally-focused, solution-focused, structural, reframing, and strategic, as well as diagnose and treat emotional and behavior disorders, to resolve relational issues. MFTs focus on communication issues, high conflict couples resolution, infidelity/affairs, problems parenting and co-parenting, problems setting boundaries, working through life transitions such as retirement, empty nesters, becoming new parents, becoming newlyweds, addiction problems, and anxiety/depression. Sex therapy focuses on desire issues/sexless marriages, orgasm issues, erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, painful sex, finding that spark again in your relationship, and sex negativity issues.
Individual sessions OR relational sessions are available but not both for the same individual and couple together for ethical (confidentiality) reasons.
Relational types of therapy often scheduled as 2-hour or more sessions depending upon the severity content.
