Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed therapist.
Couples therapists are attuned to the dynamics and nuances of relational patterns, dysfunctional communication styles, and personality clashes that often underlie and fuel difficulty among couples. Every couple is unique, with their own unique set of concerns, dissatisfactions, and conflicts; therefore each treatment must be sensitive to understanding the couple as a unit whereby each member participates in and contributes (either directly or indirectly) to the difficulty they are experiencing together.
