When conflict becomes excessive or severe, the stress can impact every member of the family and can put a strain on every aspect of daily life. We’re here to help! The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health has multiple therapists that specialize in family therapy and issues specific to couples.

Children and teens have very different needs than adults and express emotion in very different ways throughout their development.

Our child and adolescent therapists train in specialized forms of therapy that help young kids express themselves, and help teens acquire the emotional coping skills they need to navigate the challenges of young adulthood. Parents frequently express how helpful it can be to benefit from an outside perspective when dealing with the challenging issues that come up in raising a family.
