Family Counseling

 

Families are the very foundation of our civilization and yet this foundation is under pressure as never before. Families are taking on very different configurations for a variety of reasons and yet we all need what the family provides - love, protection, stability, and safety.

The goal of family therapy is to provide a secure place where family members can learn how to interact with each other in positive ways to achieve understanding and change. It's important to recognize that particular family members are not singled out as the "the problem." All family members have a part in the interactions that are not as beneficial as they might be and all family members can make positive changes in their interactions with other family members.

Dr. Chester is happy to make a recommendation based on your individual situation if family, couples or therapy focused on parenting issues would be most beneficial.

Adolescent Counseling

 

Children and adolescents are the heart of our future. Yet they experience at world that is often overwhelming. To be honest, we ask much of them and sometimes it is too much. Responding to parental choices which often lead to loss and lost dreams for children and teens, dealing with academic and cultural expectations, and trying to figure out where one fits in the world can seem like being in the middle of a very large stormy sea. When personal waves hit, it can feel easier to shut down or act out. Both serve to keep others, even those who love us, away.

Dr. Chester's work with children and adolescents emphasizes both understanding and coping strategies. Parents and other caregivers are involved in therapy as it relates to parental behavior. The goal for the child/teen is to not only be aware of their strengths, but to use those strengths to manage more effectively present and future challenges.
