Family Therapy Approaches

Dr Puff uses different therapy approaches while working with family members. Driven to help families achieve semblance in their lives.

With SFBT, we aim to identify future-focused solutions rather than dwelling on problems. We help families envision a better future and work collaboratively to achieve their goals.

Cognitive-Behavioral Family Therapy

In CBFT, we combine cognitive-behavioral techniques with family therapy. Targets specific behaviors and thought patterns within the family, promoting healthier interactions and communication.

Emotionally Focused Therapy

Using EFT, we focus on emotions and attachment within family relationships. Help family members express and understand their emotions, leading to increased intimacy and connection.

Multigenerational Family Therapy

With this approach, we examine patterns and issues that span multiple generations. Therapists explore how past family dynamics influence the present and work to break harmful cycles.
