Families struggling with difficulties of daily living, parent-child conflict, challenges at school, substance misuse, emotional and behavioral problems, and marital problems can get help at the Connections Centers for Children and Families where we provide services throughout Delaware with offices in Wilmington, Newark, Middletown Smryna, Dover, Harrington, Millsboro, and Seaford. Our Marriage and Family Therapists provide state of the art clinical services with proven effectiveness.

The Connections Centers for Children and Families harness the healing power of families to benefit individuals, couples, families, and communities they live in. Counseling in Delaware has traditionally focused on the individual, but our clinicians seek to engage the entire family and other key support systems in a holistic form of treatment.

The CCCF’s clinicians are adept at helping families address a wide range of problems, including family conflict, substance use disorder, stress related to divorce and remarriage, depression, anxiety, as well as marital distress by focusing on the impact problems have all family members.

Marriage and family therapy is brief, generally 10 session, and focused on attainable therapeutic goals designed to help families resolve their problems. Marriage and family therapists use family strengths to treat a wide range of serious clinical problems and provide treatment that is equally effective, and in some cases more effective, than individual treatments for a number of behavioral health problems.

“Traditionally, parents drop children off and hope they will be fixed when they pick them up,” said clinical director Dr. Bill Northey,  LMFT. “The problem with that model is, if you want the kids to be different, families need to change too and that can’t be done unless the parents are in the room.”
