Marriage and Family Therapy
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs) are relationship specialists who help people achieve more satisfying and productive relationships. LMFTs are trained to assess, diagnose and treat individuals, couples, children, adolescents, families and groups who are having difficulties with interpersonal relationships and/or difficulties with mental and emotional disorders. They provide support and perspective as patients struggle with life’s challenges, as well as assist patients in exploring and solving problems.
Distress signals that indicate Marriage and Family Therapists can help:
- Emotional stress or anxiety
- Child behavior problems
- Feelings of loneliness, isolation
- Alcohol or drug use
- Family conflict or tension
- Divorce or separation
- Difficulty coping with changing lifestyles
- Fear, anger or guilt
- Grief or emotional pain
LMFTs practice early crisis intervention and focused psychotherapy to resolve problems and reduce symptoms in the shortest time possible. They also have the expertise and skills to work with patients requiring more intensive, long-term treatment to cure or relieve mental or emotional conditions.
