Family Counseling

Families go through many changes & challenges. We’ll help you navigate it.

Your family is important to you. Let’s optimize the joyful moments.

Family therapy is more common than people think. It allows support to come from the people who matter most. If your family is struggling to connect, a therapist can help regain understanding, support, and joy.  

Family issues feel overwhelming, especially when they’re supposed to feel unified.


Parents struggle with their children, or even their own parents. Children, both in adulthood and childhood, can wrestle with parents. Even siblings have conflict. Everyone said family is everything, but no one taught you how to make that a reality! The unbiased third party therapist can help clarify the dynamics of a system, working towards supportive relationships.

“If you’re thinking about counseling…do it! Best personal investment I have ever made.”

“I think back on my life before- anxious, perfectionistic, judgemental- and I can’t believe it comes from the same person. I’ve come a long way. It feels good to be comfortable in my own skin and accepting of others around me.”

"When I came to Optimum Joy, my life was so stressful! With their help I feel lighter and happier for the first time in a long time."

“From the first phone call I knew I would be well taken care of. It took a lot for me to reach out. I have difficulty connecting, but I felt so welcomed and understood.”

“Mindfulness! Mindfulness! Mindfulness! I didn’t realize how tuned-out of my emotions I was. Alex helped me get back into listening to myself and practicing mindfulness. I literally use it all the time to ground me when I am feel anxious.”
