The Olive Branch Family Therapy clinicians each hold a Master’s degree
in Marriage and Family Therapy and are professionally trained in a “systemic”
approach. Systemic family therapists observe problems within the context
of the larger scope of the family. In operating through this approach,
the Olive Branch therapists believe the source of the problem lies within
the family unit as a whole, not merely the individual. Therapists using
this approach are able to help families and individuals obtain long-lasting
change through uncovering and altering patterns that cause distress to
the family unit.
