Our Philosophy

We are committed to helping families faced with challenging situations make the most educated decisions and find effective solutions. We believe that families are better equipped to navigate complex circumstances when provided with tailored information, support and advice. Our comprehensive approach takes into account each individual family member and the family’s dynamics as a whole.

Who can benefit from working with Family Central

Any family facing a transition or period of adjustment; any family who may have recently been given a diagnosis or is in the assessment phase, whether it be a health, mental health and/or educational issue. We help these families navigate their challenging situations, anticipate developments, recommend and assess available resources, and find a positive and therapeutic way forward with a concrete plan.
