All couples go through challenges, and the Marriage and Family Therapists at MFTWNY have dealt with the issues that you are facing. We are not general therapists who work with couples; we are trained, experienced couples therapists.

All of us go through periods of change, stress, or unhappiness. These periods – like the loss of a family member, a divorce, a remarriage, new or worsening behavioral problems, or a new baby joining the family – can affect each member of the family differently, and can create a change in the family dynamic.

We at MFTWNY subscribe to authoritative models of parenting; this means we promote a good balance between warmth and control. Parents should undoubtedly be in charge, and should infuse relationships with warmth, love, and positive regard for their children.

If you or your spouse are considering divorce but are not completely sure that’s the best path, you are in a tough spot. And Discernment Counseling is designed for you. It’s a chance to slowdown, take a breath, and look at your options for your marriage.

Divorce is one of the most disruptive changes that families can encounter, and the transition from marriage to divorce, and from being a couple to being co-parents, can be incredibly challenging. The therapists at MFT of WNY can help with this transition. 

At MFTWNY, we understand that monogamy is not the only structure for a healthy relationship. If you're considering a shift to consensual nonmonogamy, our therapists have the training and expertise to help you navigate this transition successfully.

Getting married, having babies, changing jobs, empty nest, retirement. . . stress isn’t just a result of bad things. Normal (and wonderful!)  life transitions can throw things into disarray, and sometimes, a few sessions with a therapist can help things settle down. 

Putting family dynamics together with money and legacy can create some of the most divisive and conflictual circumstances. The therapists at MFTWNY understand the dynamics of navigating family businesses, particularly multigenerational ones, and can help with the complexities involved. 

Choosing Collaborative Law for your divorce rather than litigating sets your family up for life-long healthy relationships.

A yearly check-up with a Marriage and Family Therapist can help you identify what is going well and what needs attention in the upcoming year. This way, problems are addressed before they get big and entrenched, and lines of communication are open.
