In many cases, our closest relationships are with our blood relatives! We love, enjoy, trust, value, and care for these people—but there are also times when we can’t stand them. The harsh truth is that sometimes we truly despise our family members and even wish that we weren’t related to them at all.
“The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.” –Gilbert K. Chesterton
When you feel like you can’t even look at your family member or be in the same room as them—and this feeling continues for months or longer—consider working with a family therapist.

What Is Family Therapy?
As we mentioned above, family therapists are trained specifically to help people work through the problems that occur between family members. This problem might be between two individuals, say a brother and sister, or affect multiple generations. Regardless of the subject matter, you can likely get help with your particular familial issue at family therapy at Thriveworks Bethesda. Our family therapists and psychologists help families work through…
- Financial strain
- Diagnoses of mental illness
- Addiction and substance abuse
- Relationship issues
- Divorce and separation
- Parenting challenges
If the issue you are encountering is not on the list above, don’t worry. This is just the short list, as it would be virtually impossible to name every familial issue addressed in family therapy. Whatever it is your family is encountering, Thriveworks Bethesda family therapy and psychologists will use their skills and knowledge to help you resolve the challenge at hand and improve your relationships.
How Does Family Therapy, Psychology Work?
Your family therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Bethesda, MD will first get to know your family as well as what exactly has brought you into therapy. This will inform the treatment they design for your family. That’s right, we create an individualized treatment plan for every individual, couple, and family that walks into our office. That being said, your family therapist or psychologist will equip you with helpful tools for working through your current (as well as future) problems.
Family therapy will not make your relationships with your family members perfect because the reality is that there are times when we will disagree with others, especially with those closest to us. However, family therapy at Thriveworks Bethesda will help you work through major issues that are harming your relationships as well as teach you skills for maintaining happy, healthy relationships (even during difficult times) moving forward.
