Counseling Services

The Olive Branch Family Therapy clinicians each hold a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and are professionally trained in a “systemic” approach. Systemic family therapists observe problems within the context of the larger scope of the family. In operating through this approach, the Olive Branch therapists believe the source of the problem lies within the family unit as a whole, not merely the individual. Therapists using this approach are able to help families and individuals obtain long-lasting change through uncovering and altering patterns that cause distress to the family unit.
