Family Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Blacksburg, VA
Your family impacts who you are and more importantly, who you will be
Early on, we learn our social skills, speech and communication skills, and even relationship skills within the family we grow up in. Our perspectives and observations about the world are usually formed within the family unit as well. Certainly many traditions, preferences, and even biases are influenced by our family unit and setting.
For better or worse, we also learn how to love, and interact with others early on from within the framework of those within our family structure. Our own family/upbringing can have a tremendous impact on our current family situation.
Maybe your family unit is in turmoil for one of these reasons:
- a family member struggling with health issues
- relocation to a new house or even an entirely new community
- job loss
- incarceration of a family member
- a new sibling has joined the family, including a birth, adoption, foster children, or even a grandparent
- domestic violence
- substance abuse by a parent or child
- problems at school
- in-law conflicts
