Family counseling ideally will involve one or both parents and the child/children of concern.

Family relationship difficulties can involve an individual parent who faces physical, emotional or mental health challenges, couple relationship issues, child behavioral, emotional or mental health challenges, or a combination of these issues. If you feel that you face personal challenges that impact your relationship, perhaps review the Individuals services section as well. If you feel that you face couple’s challenges that impact your family dynamics, you might also review the Couples section. Whether you are a man or woman or couple seeking help to resolve parenting, child behavioral/mental health relationship challenges, or other family stresses, we at ARK Counseling Services can help.
