Individual, Couple and Family Therapy Services

What is Couple and Family Therapy?

Couple and Family Therapy incorporates a holistic view of individual, couple and family concerns. Couple & Family Therapists are trained to work with clients' relationships and supportive networks. We can address a wide range of issues such as anxiety, blended family issues, trauma, loss, communication, identity development, sexual concerns, and relationship stress. Couple and Family Therapy is a proactive process that allows for the co-creation of attainable goals between therapists and clients.

The Couple and Family Therapy Approach

Couple and Family Therapy provides a variety of therapeutic approaches for working with diverse individuals, couples and families. As Drexel University is known as the birthplace of contextual family therapy, therapists in training continue a tradition of facilitating trust and support in relationships while incorporating influences of community, society and culture.
