Beverly Hills MI Family Therapy

Family Therapy and Counseling in Beverly Hills, MI

A family is a system—that is, each member is connected to the other members. Each person contributes to the family; each person receives from the family… at least, when family systems work harmoniously. However, it is normal for families to lose their balance at times. Life can knock families off balance, and re-establishing normalcy can be a challenge. In a family, when one person faces a problem, often, everyone is affected.

Maybe being a parent is far more challenging than you anticipated, and your children are having a hard time. Maybe one family member’s anxiety, frustration, or anger is affecting another member. Maybe poor communication or no communication has hurt feelings. Maybe a harmful family pattern is repeating over and over again.

There are lots of reasons to consider family therapy, but one of the best is that family therapy has helped many families work through their challenges. When the family system becomes healthier, often the individual members benefit.

The therapists at Thriveworks Beverly Hills understand that families face difficult challenges. Each family has unique problems, but family therapy has helped many clients find the tools they need to re-establish harmony.

Why Family Therapy?

Family therapy explores how individual members are situated within a family unit: how they contribute to the family and how the family contributes to them. This may mean looking at a family’s coping mechanisms, expectations, and roles.

The most well-known methods of family counseling are family systems therapy and family structural therapy. These approaches build upon the foundational idea that families shape people’s behaviors, beliefs, and identities—for good or bad. Therefore, helping a family system usually helps the individual family members.

Particularly, a skilled therapist may explore how love languages, birth order, and/or personality type make connecting as a family more challenging but how making some adjustment may help. The goal of family therapy is to help families become interdependent (but not codependent), increase their communication, and augment a family’s harmony.

There is no quick fix or magic formula for overcoming a family’s struggles. However, strengthening the family unit is often worth the effort. Potential benefits include…

  • Less cases of abuse, neglect, or other legal problems
  • Greater potential income with a reduced risk of poverty
  • Better coping skills for managing stress and hardship
  • Increased attachment and possibility for children to learn relational skilled
  • Decreased depression and anxiety-related conditions

When Is the Right Time to Pursue Family Therapy?

Consider for a moment the challenges that your family faces. Are several people affected by the challenge? Could several people assist with the solution? If yes, consider family therapy as an option for working through the challenge.

Some of the reasons Thriveworks Beverly Hills clients have begun family therapy include…

  1. Overbearing parenting and recalcitrant children
  2. Indulgent parenting and uncontrollable children
  3. A special-needs family member with unequally distributed care/interaction
  4. Hormonal variances with parents or teens that may be causing or exacerbating conflict
  5. Intimacy challenges in the marriage relationship
  6. Unmet needs of family members
  7. Neglect, addiction, and/or abuse in the family
  8. Inadequate/no premarital counseling and/or marriage maintenance
  9. Hostility/tension among the family members
  10. Particularly hard times as a sudden job loss or family death
  11. Family therapy is not a quick fix—it takes work and each member must do their part. When families come together to solve their problems through therapy, many are able to breakout of harmful patterns and reestablish harmony.

The therapists at Thriveworks Beverly Hills are ready to guide families toward more loving, peaceful relationships.

Review for Sandra Quigley

*****I have been a patient of Sandra's for nearly 2 years now and I really can't say enough good things about her work with me. She is a true Christian counselor and that was exactly the perspective I needed to guide me down the path God was trying to lead me. She definitely strengthened my faith and made many of life's big problems seem like small speed bumps when looking at the big picture!! I highly recommend Sandra Q. if you are looking for the someone who honestly cares about you and the journey you are on. Remember, there’s ultimately only one way to peace in your life, and that’s to walk daily with the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus!! *****

I wouldn’t recommend it – one of the worst therapists I’ve ever seen

The doctor (PhD) I saw for therapy decided, on the second session, to pay more attention to doing things on his phone than to listening to me. He thought he was hiding what he was doing behind his portfolio, but he was not. I could see the reflection of what he was doing, and he was looking down more than up. He was pretending to listen but didn't do a very good job of that, because when I stopped talking, he would incorrectly try to restate what I said or, make a comment on what I said which turned out to not be relevant because it was clear he wasn't listening. He did not seem to want to be there. It was a horrible experience. I called the next day to complain to the lady on the phone, and got a sincere "I'm sorry" and that's it. When I got the bill (very expensive, by the way), I have been attempting to call the office to pay it over the phone but I keep getting told that the people that do the billing are currently busy and that I should call back. It should not be that difficult for someone to take a credit card number and apply it to my bill, especially a bill I shouldn't have to pay due to horrible service. I hope the other therapists at Thriveworks are better than the one I selected, and actually have interest in helping their patients.

She helped change my life

Dear Marcy, I can't thank you enough for recommending your therapist Dawn Gaden to me. She has helped change my life. I have always struggled with feeling misunderstood. But recently I fell into a deep depression; beyond something I could resolve myself. Therapy was required for my recovery. Since childhood I have been weary of therapists because I would talk through my problems but I didn't get tools and strategies to handle my problems better. Dawn has changed that. For the first time I leave each appointment not only relieved from having talked my issues through, but more importantly with tools to help me move forward. She has introduced me to methods I had considered silly, but now I could live without. I am proud of the person I am becoming and the journey I have chosen to take. Thank you for all you have done to change my life and my family's future.

She Inspires Hope

I found Sandra Quigley on the web while searching for a Christian counselor. I was having a lot of anxiety about making a career change. She not only helped through the anxieties, she also helped me with concerns in my personal life. Sandra's non-judgmental and compassionate approach, made me feel comfortable and hopeful.

Everything I needed

I found Sandra Quigley in the back of a magazine (Psychology Today). I desperately needed someone to talk to. Newly retired with plenty of time to allow my mind to take over my life, I felt constantly anxious and very out of sorts. Enter Sandra Quigley- compassionate, non-judgmental, kind, and gentle. She is everything that I needed to heal myself. I had never talked to a therapist before, so this was a new venture. It was very important to me that I find someone with whom I could feel comfortable. Right away, I felt comfortable. I did have assignments; I never was prescribed a single drug. She went out of her way to help me specifically with my issues- finding me articles, books, telling stories. I never felt uncomfortable; I felt and still feel that my time with Sandra is valuable. With Sandra’s help, I have unearthed a much calmer, happier, together self that now wakes up each morning looking forward to the day ahead. We all have our baggage- I never once realized that I could unpack that bag and put my crap away. I now get to walk through life so much lighter!!

So helpful!

I really love the helpful and peaceful approach at Thriveworks. I have known Marcy for a long time and her ability to work through tough spots and discuss personalities makes her a lot of fun for me. Time flies when we chat and that is a good thing for a guy like me who is always worried about time. I also love Dawn Gadens video blogs! insightful and easy to access. I don't see Dawn in counseling but if she is that good on video I have to believe she is great in person. Give a shot...I bet you will love them.
