Relationships can be challenging. We work with individuals, couples and families to explore their abilities to resolve their concerns collaboratively and systemically. NSU Health's Brief Therapy Institute houses the Family Therapy Clinic, where we see people from all walks of life who are dealing with personal concerns, difficult relationships or their children's needs. As brief therapists, we focus on your strengths and resources, helping you to discover creative solutions to your unique problems, typically in just five to ten sessions.

You will be seen by highly motivated graduate students trained in brief therapy with ongoing American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy-approved supervision by licensed NSU Health faculty members. Our reasonably priced services are covered by most insurance plans. We offer day, evening and Saturday appointments, access to therapeutic teams and quick entry into first appointments — with your health, time and family in mind.

COVID-19 Disclaimer: Your Health Is Our Priority

NSU Health is taking decisive and informed action to keep students, faculty, staff and patients, as well as the community, safe. We are strictly following guidance from the CDC, the Florida Department of Health and the Broward County Health Department. Temperature checks will be performed prior to entry at our facilities, and telehealth appointments are available, as well. NSU Health’s pharmacy is currently operating during regular business hours.

COVID-19 is changing our world, and we’re changing with it. We offer telehealth appointments for your convenience at our medical and mental health services through secure, HIPAA compliant platforms. You will receive an email with all relevant information after your appointment is scheduled. Telehealth appointments are covered through most insurance plans at the same rate as in-person office visits.
