Any individual person, married or unmarried couples, children, elderly, couples who are or are not living together, LGBT persons, families of all varieties, regardless of legal status, roommates--all are welcome at FamilyWorks. Family therapy, sometimes called systems therapy or relational therapy, is a particular way of thinking that helps people make the changes that they want to make. Even though the word, "family" suggests that family therapists work only with whole families, this is not the case. Family therapists work with individuals, couples, groups, and families. Family therapy has been found to be helpful to people with many different kinds of problems. These might include:

  • anger management
  • anxiety
  • individual depression
  • divorce and separation
  • sexual problems
  • parenting problems
  • difficulty with communication
  • relationship problems
  • domestic violence
  • grief and loss
  • pre-marital concerns
  • child behavior problems

We offer our services to all people who seek them, regardless of age, gender, race, political or religious affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, education, economic status, disability, or ethnic background. FamilyWorks therapists do not dispense medication; however, talk over your medication concerns with him or her, and, if you need a referral to a psychiatrist, we are happy to help.


Several of our therapists are also a part of the VSU GAP Program
