Healing happens with connection and community. Our family system is the foundation for attachment styles, communication, and boundaries. For many of us, our family system is also where we experienced a lot of pain and dysfunction. There is hope for you and your family – you can overcome the past. Family therapy at APN offers the support, guidance, and education needed for healing the family system. Your family can reconnect and strengthen your bond … together.
We believe that family healing lays a foundation for long-term recovery. Start healing today.

MEET OUR DIRECTOR OF FAMILY PROGRAMMING
Meet Karri Francisco, LMFT – Director of Family Programming at All Points North. Karri Francisco roots her clinical approach in a passion for interpersonal familial relationships and a desire to destigmatise getting help. She’s honoured to provide families with the space to decide how they want their relationships to move forward and what the future can hold.
Karri’s unique ability to hold space for clients as they grow out of maladaptive patterns of functioning has allowed her to be a part of positive change in family transformation and individual healing.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FAMILY THERAPY
The goal of family therapy at APN is to elicit and analyse relational pattern functioning, assess for maladaptive functioning and behaviours, enhance the perception of accountability, create a therapeutic alliance, develop a positive motivational context, and provide psychoeducation to decrease the blame and shame around mental health issues, substance use disorders, and trauma.
Brief intensive family therapy has three stages focused on various aspects to heal the family dynamic:
- Stage 1: Join together, accommodate each other, challenge perceptions, create a relational focus, build a therapeutic alliance
- Stage 2: Challenge homeostasis, model skills, shape competencies with insight, increase the intensity, shift behavioural and cognitive patterns, realign relational patterns of functioning to healthier levels
- Stage 3: Highlight healthier relational patterns, shape competencies with insight, explore strengths and plan for maintenance
Family therapy at APN is rooted in evidence-based practices. We’ll find the strategies that work best for your family and set you up for success, even after your sessions end.START NOW
