ABCpsych employs licensed post doctoral psychologists and counselors with decades of experience dealing with issues pertaining to marriage, divorce, new couples, and family matters. Below, are just some of the marriage and family counseling services that we provide in the Fort Lauderdale area.
Child and Adolescent Counseling
Childhood and adolescence are often tumultuous stages for most children and teenagers in these chaotic and uncertain times. ABCpsych can help your son or daughter deal with their issues, including depression, bullying, self-harm, self-esteem, and self-identity issues.
The road to falling in love and getting married can be a rocky one. ABCpsych has helped couples identify hidden issues, including deal breakers, before they get married. We have resolved fundamental problems that have plagued married and non-married couples through mediation, and trust or intimacy building. Many couples have poor communication skills, or other problems; thus, they discover why their sexual and emotional intimacy is lacking.
Divorce and Family Mediation
Unfortunately, not all marriages can be saved. In such an event, ABCpsych can provide divorce and family mediation services to help families cope with the new and frightening changes that inevitably stem from divorce.
ABCpsych also provides family therapy that emphasizes the specialized roles and responsibilities of family members and how they interact to form a cohesive family union. By catering to each person’s strengths and highlighting weaknesses the lines of communication can be opened and the opportunity for change will arise.
