What is Family Therapy Service?

UR Medicine's Family Therapy Service helps individuals and families assess their vulnerabilities, find their strengths, and learn how to live more fully within their relationships.

We treat individuals and families across the lifespan who are experiencing issues such as depression and anxiety or other mental illness. We also bring expertise to relationship conflict, adjusting to life with new or chronic medical conditions, parenting, family care-giving, and grief and loss.

UR Medicine's Approach

We operate on the principle that the people who come to us for treatment are embedded in relationship systems that affect their overall health and well-being. Therapists treat individuals and their family members from a perspective that takes into account the way physical health and the environment they live in can affect mental health and functioning.

With consent, therapists regularly include whoever is most relevant in the situation, including family members, physicians, school personnel, clergy, and other important people in a patient's care. In addition, if appropriate, clinicians work closely with other services related to addictions or serious and persistent mental illness.

What Sets Us Apart?

Family Therapy Service is part of the University of Rochester Institute for the Family, made up of the Family Therapy Training Program and Wynne Center for Family Research. This community of professionals shares expertise about mental health from a systems perspective, emphasizing collaboration and the importance of communities.

We’re committed to drawing on family strengths and, when appropriate, working with other professionals to enhance care.
