Family Therapy in Reading, PA

Your Family Can Heal and Grow with the Right Support 

When we are growing up, our families affect how we view the world and how we interact with it. Our family can have a powerful, positive, or negative influence on our development as individuals. We learn words, habits, customs, and rituals, and how we observe everything in our daily lives from them. However, when the negative is more frequent, it can lead to strained relationships.

You want this transition to go smoothly and help your children adjust to their new lives without being affected negatively. Or perhaps you’ve noticed that your family has become distant and disconnected, and you want to reignite the closeness you used to have. You don't want them growing up to think this is how a family should communicate. You want the best for your family and it can heal and grow with the right support.
