It doesn’t matter who is in political office, what the state of the economy is, or who won the Super Bowl. It doesn’t matter if taxes are going up, if unemployment is on the rise or if there’s a new blockbuster movie being released. Whatever is going on in the world around us, nothing compares to, or impacts us as much as, having issues in our family that prevent us from leading normal, healthy, happy lives. Nothing. In fact, if we have upsets in our home, we don’t even notice the other things going on around us.
The family is the core unit of our lives, our communities, and our nation. When things go awry, it hits us hard because it literally strikes us where we live. However, even if we acknowledge something is going wrong, that doesn’t mean we are armed to address it properly and make it right again.
Coppell Family Therapy is a local professional therapy practice that can help parents and children identify and work through the many challenges that face families today. Therapist Audrey E. Kteily has a PhD in Family Studies from Texas Women’s University, as well as a Master’s degree in counseling from Dallas Baptist University. She is also a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-S) in the state of Texas.
Dr Kteily’s areas of expertise are quite broad in the field of youth and family counseling. She is experienced in offering parenting strategies, marriage counseling, and couples therapy in the Dallas area. For parents, she also addresses mood disorders and family violence in all its forms—and in all its devastating impact to each family member.
For youthful family members, Dr Kteily provides help for self-esteem issues, and school and social anxiety, especially now when bullying is so prevalent. Using therapy, psychotherapy and counseling, she helps families work through “cutting” behavior, sexual orientation, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Dr. Kteily can also assist parents with youth who have been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. Her specialty areas include obsessive compulsive disorder, autism spectrum disorders and personality disorders.
Parents know when something is amiss in their family—and so do their children. Perhaps they second guess themselves, thinking they are overreacting. Perhaps they feel ill-equipped to identify what “it” is and how to make it right. Coppell Family Therapy offers a non-judgmental open door to all to help identify, validate and help resolve internal family strife via counseling and therapy.
