Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for not so better at times. Through family dynamics, we learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs, and how to view and observe the world around us.
Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Some positive family therapy outcomes are:
- Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
