    About Family Matters Counseling Group, PLLC

    Family Matters Counseling Group, PLLC is an organization dedicated to providing high quality, compassionate counseling services to children, adults and couples. We offer a wide variety of therapeutic services to aid children, families, single adults, and couples in managing their most difficult life challenges. We provide individual, group, familial, and relationship counseling.

    Our mission is to help families stay connected by breaking the cycle of dysfunction and improving communication.

    Therapy is provided for children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing emotional and behavioral problems. By receiving therapeutic services, the individual will receive emotional support and skills to resolve conflict as well as develop the ability to both understand feelings, and utilize appropriate problem solving skills. We offer parenting training, intimate/familial counseling, skill and self-esteem building, and play therapy.

    Group therapy includes:

    • Parent Support
    • Socialization (children and adolescents)
    • Grief and Bereavement
    • Trauma and Victimization
    • Sibling Groups
    • Substance Abuse
    • Anger Management

    Work with children includes behavior modification, play therapy (Lego and sand), socialization skills training, counseling surrounding parent divorce, loss of parent or sibling, aggressive behavior, self-esteem building, and managing peer pressure.

    The goals for therapy as well as the course of therapy may be specific to (conflict resolution, anger management, improve relationships with family and friends), or more general (reduce stress, improve romantic, familial, and social relationships, improve self-esteem).

    The length of therapeutic services depends on the complexity and severity of problems. No referral is required.

    The core of Family Matters Counseling Group, PLLC is our belief in family, values, and community. We believe it is the responsibility of all of us to promote positive social change, develop and enhance both individual and shared strengths, educate, share, and lead by example the kind of relationships that will encourage each member of the family system to reach their fullest potential.
