Family therapy

Systemic therapy for families

In our practice on Fraenkelufer in Kreuzberg, Berlin, we provide therapy for families. Conflict is part of every family’s life and testifies to a family’s vibrancy and fluctuations.

Sometimes we get knocked off balance, so much so that our family bonds or our development as individuals are impaired. Some of the causes for crises in families--including multi-generational ones--may be:

  • Behavioral issues
  • Issues of development in children and teenagers
  • Dealing with a family member’s illness
  • Separation or Divorce
  • Termination of contact
  • Mental health issues including depression, addiction, or eating disorders
  • The birth of a child
  • Patchwork families
  • Foster or adoptive parenting
  • Loss
  • Trauma
  • Any difficult family situation

In situations like these, children, parents, grandparents and other members of the family are affected in different ways and are involved to varying degrees.

In discussion with the entire family, we can help you find solutions. Every member of the family has their own unique perspective and something to offer. We will support you as you come to understand each other better (again) and meet each other’s needs for autonomy and connection.

When working with families, we operate as a team: all sessions take place with two therapists.
