“My dear young cousin, if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the eons, it’s that you can’t give up on your family, no matter how tempting they make it. It doesn’t matter if they hate you, or embarrass you, or simply don’t appreciate your genius for inventing the Internet–”
– Rick Riordan, The Sea of Monsters.

“A dysfunctional family is any family with more than one person in it.”
― Mary Karr, The Liars’ Club

Ah, family. The bigger the family, the more the love. Or so they say. Of course, they also say, “you only hurt the ones you love,” which is why sometimes family relationships can be the toughest on our psyches. For Dr. Piper Walsh’s clients in Orange County family therapy is where individual family members and learn how communicate effectively with siblings, parents and other members of the family group.

Your family members know how to push your buttons like no one else – hey, they might have even created some of them! The key is not which of your buttons they push. The key is to understand why you still have those buttons and why on earth you let others have a go at them! You can’t control what anyone in the family does or says, but you can control your attitude toward what they do and say. The secret has to do with how you choose to respond. It may take a little practice, but anyone can master the art of effective interpersonal communication. Dr. Walsh helps her Orange County family therapy clients to respond to family members’ behaviors in new ways that build relationships instead of tearing them down.
