All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
-Leo Tolstoy

Family Support

Family Support

“There is no worse parent than an unhappy parent!” 
― Rossana Condoleo

At AFI we work to help families separate the problem from the person, allowing the 
family system to find a path to healing.  As we help families to understand the cycle of negative emotion they get stuck in, they begin to de-escalate and find an emotional pathway to connection. 



Family Therapy


Parent Child Conflict


Parent Coaching and Education

At AFI Family therapy and counseling  helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is usually helpful when all the participants in the family are willing to participate in counseling together.


Parents and children conflicts can occur for many reasons. When conflict occurs, the entire family can be thrown into emotional turmoil. Resolving a parent and child conflict requires the participation of everyone involved. Teaching the parent to help the kids emotionally regulate can be very helpful.

   Parents for the most part love their kids and are very motivated to be loving and kind parents.  Sometimes if a parent can learn specific tools that have been researched and that we know are clinically effective, then parent coaching or training is a very effective approach.
