Family Therapy

In family therapy, a careful assessment is made of how individuals interact from a the perspective of their relationship (systems perspective). How individuals interact with one another (good or bad) affects how they feel about each other, which in turn affects their interaction.

Calgary’s St. Pierre is able to facilitate conversation between both parties by opening the lines of communication in a non-threatening manner. Often, it is the case that each individual needs to feel understood and cherished in their own unique way.

Recognizing the unique characteristics and traits each party has and cherishing these qualities builds good feelings about the other person. It is precisely these good feelings, which are needed to cultivate other good feelings such as intimacy (relational or sexual).
