“Graceful and Solution-Focused”
Connected Families offers graceful, solution-focused help for parents and families. We believe that every individual and family has elements of strength that can be built upon. Our goal is to discover and amplify these strengths while helping you find solutions that work. Just as each individual and family is unique, so are the solutions we help craft with each of our clients. We respectfully guide, direct, coach and counsel our clients into greater wholeness. Whether you’re looking for a little “tune up” for your marriage or parenting, you are in a crisis, or anywhere in between, we’re eager to offer help and hope! Ask about whether your insurance might cover our services.
Our staff specializes in marriage and family issues and has extensive experience working with teens and their parents.

Our Services and Specialties
While we serve couples, parents, young adults in transition, and families of school-aged children, our specialty is working with the tumultuous adolescent years. Our counselors are especially skilled and experienced with high-risk youth, troubled adolescents, and their families. We also provide services to governmental agencies, school districts, churches and Early Childhood Family Education.
Believing parents can play an important role, we seek to involve them in adolescent counseling whenever appropriate. Our specialties in adolescent counseling include:
- ADD (ADHD)
- Anxiety issues
- Behavioral issues
- School-related issues
- Adjustment disorders
- Chemical issues.

We recognize that where there are struggling children, there are usually hurting families. So we seek as much as possible to work with families together, offering hope and encouragement to traditional, blended, and single parent families.
