Cumming, GA Family Therapy, Coaching, and Counseling

Families are systems—each member is interconnected with all the other members. Everyone contributes and receives in some valuable way… at least… when families are working together harmoniously. But it is common knowledge that life can throw families out of tune. It happens to every family at some point—a crisis or on-going challenge will make working together difficult if not impossible.

Maybe parenting is more difficult than you expected, and your children are experiencing behavior problems. Maybe one family member is facing anxiety or depression that affects other family members. Maybe lack of communication has led to distant relationships. Maybe a family pattern is playing out again and hurting individuals again.

Re-establishing healthy ways of relating is hard, but worth the effort. When the family as a whole becomes healthier, often the individuals in the family reap the benefits. Family therapy may be able to help your family work through its challenges and re-establish harmony.

Thriveworks Cumming offers family therapy because we know it is normal for families to face difficult challenges. Unique families have unique problems, but therapy has equipped many people with the tools they need to overcome the problem and grow closer in the process.

How Could Family Therapy Help?

The foundation of family therapy is the idea that—for better or worse—families shape people’s beliefs, behaviors, and identities. Understanding an individual means understanding the context of their family. A family’s expectations, roles, and coping mechanisms are important concepts for understanding an individual’s expectations, roles, and coping mechanisms.

Because family members are interdependent, helping the family as a whole often means that individual members are helped. For example, a therapist may explore each individual member’s love language, personality type, and/or birth order so that families can form patterns of behavior that respect each individual’s needs and gifts. As families communicate well as a whole, individuals benefit.

Working through problems to strengthen your family will likely be worth your effort. Possible benefits include…

  • Fewer anxiety and depression-related conditions
  • Less instances of abuse and neglect
  • Improved coping skills for managing adversity and stress
  • Greater potential for income as shared earners with a reduced risk of poverty
  • Better relational attachment with the possibility of children learning relational skills
