Experiencing relationships the way you want to.
Family therapy is a service where a group of people who are special to one another can connect with a therapist. These individuals need not be related by blood, marriage or law.
$160 + HST per 50 minutes (Registered Psychotherapist/Registered Social Worker)
$115+HST per 50 minutes (Psychotherapy Interns)
The standard Family Therapy session is for 50 minutes. Sessions can also be accessed for 80 minutes. The length of session depends on client’s preferences, therapeutic benefit and goals.
The centre requires 48 business hours notice (not including weekends or holidays) or the full fee per sessions may apply.
Family therapy may be helpful on various levels. There may be felt concerns/hopes around any one individual, relationships within the larger unit, and/or the unit as a whole. For example, there may be:
- Concerns/challenges that appear to be presenting in/around one individual and the family hopes to share their concerns/support and work towards change together.
- Concerns/challenges appear to be presenting in/around a specific relationship within the family (ex. siblings are experiencing tensions, parents are separating etc.) and those in the relationship hope to access therapy separate to the larger family and/or with the larger family present.
- Perhaps there are held hopes to strengthen relationship dynamics across the whole family unit and all members are willing to attend in whatever dynamic (ex. sometimes with sibling, sometimes as a whole family unit, sometimes individually etc.) in hopes of putting effort towards the family system.

Our Approach To Family Therapy
When providing family therapy, we will work together in creating common goals and exploring who members of the family are as individuals, and what their values, beliefs, hopes, expectations, strengths are that they each bring to the relationship. We will work together in exploring interactional patterns and identify which are helpful and desired and interrupt interactional patterns that may be more distressing and unhelpful.
We will work collaboratively in developing goals, working towards them, and evaluating progress. We will work diligently in containing and facilitating our dialogues in a way where we maximize opportunities for you to gain greater clarity, knowledge, skills, techniques and resources.
Our team of Registered Psychotherapists, Psychotherapy Interns and Social Workers provide Family Therapy in Mississauga, and virtually.
