Family Counseling

Families of all sizes and backgrounds are bound to encounter the occasional argument and household difficulty, though some incidents can be more destructive or challenging than others

From concerns about substance abuse or other dangerous behaviors to issues in communication and beyond, families sometimes struggle to maintain harmony and emotional health within their relationships, and finding a family counselor can often help uncover, analyze, and address specific concerns. Whether involving young children or siblings, or incorporating extended family members, family counseling often offers families a way to discuss their thoughts and feelings in an unbiased and safe environment, encouraging the fostering of stronger family bonds and deeper mutual understanding.

Parents or other household members hoping to find the right family counselor can typically rely on a referral from a family doctor or other medical professional, or may wish to find an online or in-print directory of practitioners in their area. Meeting with a family counselor for an initial session to outline the desires for the treatment and the concerns that have brought the family to counseling can go a long way towards establishing a positive relationship, and can help the family make a more confident decision about choosing an appropriate professional. Family counselors are held to high standards of academic and clinical experience, and may also have backgrounds in child development and related fields that can aid in the understanding of behaviors and interactions within family groups.

Though it may be tempting for some families to resign themselves to chronic difficulties or specific issues, those that embrace the potential of family counseling to heal and establish positive growth may find that contributing to and supporting a healthy family is more natural and achievable than they had thought, and the skills and techniques learned in counseling may enable families to address not only their immediate concerns, but to approach future issues with skill and strength. The presence and perspective of an impartial and specially-trained counselor can sometimes lend new insights into even the oldest of family issues, and the sense of teamwork and effort that goes into family counseling sessions can be a powerful catalyst for healing connections throughout the family dynamic.

No family is without the occasional frustration or challenge, but when such issues become debilitating or interfere with the well-being of the family’s members, the help of a family counselor may improve the overall health and happiness of the household, establishing positive habits and practices for living in harmony. Through the search to find a family counselor, families stand to perform a great service to themselves and to their loved ones.

Tammy has been most helpful. This is my first experience with a professional Councillor / Therapist. I'm already feeling better and still have a long journey ahead, With the help of Tammy I see a brighter future for me going forward. Kind consideration and dignity are only a few of the attributes Tammy has shown. Unfortunately for me I've had to relocate back to the UK, had I been fortunate enough to stay in California I would have continued the therapy sessions with Tammy. I very much doubt the road to mental health is something we can go alone, so please seek professional help from someone as qualified as Tammy

Tammy is one of the most compassionate and caring people I have ever met. She is both professional and personable.  From the moment I met her, her warmth shone through andI could tell how dedicated she is to her clients.  I would recommend her to everyone I know for couples counseling, as her EFT base strategic completely align with the person she is.  She utilizes her intelligence and empathy  to help her clients navigate difficult situations, and her work is truly profound.  I would rate her 5 stars if I could!  One more thing:  her office is beautiful.  The colors and decor are so calming.  Its the perfect place to go to for a therapy session.  Tammy is the best!

At the first and only visit, she told my boyfriend and me that she didn't see why we were together, so he broke up with me. I expected to receive help in learning communication skills for us to determine for ourselves, not to see someone who thinks she the Oracle.

I saw Tammy for a few months and she showed me nothing but compassion and empathy while helping me dissect a couple of childhood issues. Including with my therapy she recommended a couple of really good self-help books that I can use the rest of my life. I will continue to see Tammy and recommend her to anyone who needs guidance for looking into any irrational behavior or stuck trauma. She’s one of the best if not the best therapist I’ve ever been to and I mean that with great sincerity. Thank you Tammy for all your guidance!
