A healthy marriage and family depends on each family member’s individual acceptance of self, ability to seek wellness and resolution of difficulties. In couples and family work an additional entity is ever present in the room - that of the relationship itself. The combined thoughts and feelings of the family create the equivalent of a living breathing being. The attention given to this “being” (the family itself) brings success to the process. The needs of the family become understood as the therapy moves forward. No two people are identical and each family has its own unique character. Azure seeks understanding of what has been missing for the couple/family, such as important supportive skills, or experiences that can fill a painful void. The new learning strengthens healthy family life.
