Cedar Park TX Family Therapy

Family Therapy and Counseling in Cedar Park, TX

For poor or rich, for better or worse, in sickness and health, people receive more from their families than their genetic make-up. Each person in a family is knit together with every other.

People’s families shape their values, behaviors, and feelings. Whether people want to follow everything they learned from their family or whether they want to distance themselves from their family, a family is the context for knowing a person.

Families can be wonderful when everyone contributes and everyone receives. But life does not always work like that. Achieving that balance is hard, and sometimes, it can feel impossible. Here are only a handful of ways life can knock families off balance:

  • Indifference or hostility has grown up between family members.
  • Parents who disagree on how to raise the children, and children who are confused and experience behavior problems.
  • One family member’s anger is taking its toll on other family members.
  • Poor or no communication has resulted in hurt feelings and/or distance.
  • A harmful family pattern of behavior is repeating over and over again.

Every family will face challenges that knock it off balance. That is normal. It is also normal to need an outside perspective to regain equilibrium. Family therapy has helped many family systems by helping each individual member.

Family therapy through Thriveworks Cedar Park is designed to support families through life’s challenges. Our therapists know that it is possible for families to face their problems together and grow more tight-knight along the way.

Could Therapy Help Your Family?

The two most well-utilized techniques for family counseling are family structural therapy and family systems therapy. These focus upon how a family offers each member comfort, sets expectations, copes with stress, and defines their values. The foundational idea is that these functions shape each family member’s life. People may react against their family and try to distance themselves. People may love their families and try to emulate everything they learned in their family. In either case, the family of origin is the context to understand the individual.

Understanding how the family functions can help families understand each individual member. Understanding can lead to more unity and peace. When families understand each member, they may begin to work together. To achieve this understanding, therapists may also explore each individual’s personality type, birth order, and/or love language.

The aim of family therapy is interdependence. That is, each family member is their own individual, and their unique needs and talents are respected. But at the same time, individual family members can work together, support each other, and receive the care they need.

Strong families are comprised of strong individuals. Strong individuals are often supported by strong families. Healthy, interdependent families usually experience many benefits, including…

  • Less risk of poverty as parents share income potential.
  • More comfort and emotional connection between family members.
  • Better attachments between children and parents (and children may continue with these relational skills in their adulthood relationships).
  • Less risk of depression and anxiety disorders.
  • Greater life coping skills for hardship, stress, and challenge.
  • Fewer cases of abuse and/or neglect.

When Is the Right Time for Family Therapy?

What challenges is your family facing? Have multiple people in the family been affected? Will the way forward also affect multiple people? If yes, then consider family therapy. It may be the safe place your family needs to work through the challenge together. Here are a few situations families have faced together with the support of a family therapist:

  1. Hormonal changes in parents or adolescents that may be leading to conflict.
  2. Inadequate or no premarital counseling and/or marriage maintenance counseling
  3. Abuse, neglect, and/or addiction
  4. Overbearing parenting style that results in rebellious children
  5. Lax parenting style that results in out-of-control children
  6. A special-needs family member with unequally distributed care
  7. Family members with unmet needs
  8. Tension/strain in spousal, parent/child, and/or in-law relationships
  9. Crises such as death of a loved one, job loss, loss of the family’s home, or illness/injury
  10. A marriage lacking intimacy

These challenges do not have an easy-fix or a magic formula that will quickly make life easier. But with time, empathy, and humility, families can learn to work together.

Thriveworks Counseling Cedar Park

Deissy is the best!

★★★★★
I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Susan is a compassionate, inspirational, and insightfull therapist. She helped me through the toughest moments of my life and taught me techniques to enjoy living, rather than just scraping by. It seems like a lot of therapists are leaving this location recently. Susan is the best, my quality of life has dramatically improved with her guidance. I strongly recommend her to anyone in need.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
Susan Wills is an amazing counselor. I have been going to her for several months now and she has helped me with adjusting to my new life in Texas and overcoming the challenges that life presents. Susan is a great listener, can relate to her clients and provides meaningful homework assignments to help her clients meet their goals. I have seen several counselors in the past and I have made more progress working with Susan by attending sessions and doing the work necessary outside of our sessions to improve my mental health.

A Caring and Helpful Counselor

★★★★★
Susan Wills has been my therapist for a few months now. I had never attended therapy before, but felt I needed to in order to get my emotions in order. She is so good at her help, that never feel like I've been through "therapy", but always leave her office in a much better mood and can more easily handle the stresses and difficulties my life seems to bring. I would recommend her to anyone, especially if you've never had therapy or counseling before.

Susan Wills

★★★★★
I believe everything happens for a reason. I've had difficulty even meeting a therapist. I've had therapists cancel on me before even meeting them.. and then there was Susan. She has already done wonders on me and my self-growth. She gives you resources and outlets to use in between sessions. She takes the time to listen and make you feel valued and cared for. She is having me practice gratitude and to be honest, she is what I am most grateful for at this stage in my life. I feel stronger everyday now. Please know she is one of a kind and deserves your time if you are willing. Anyone is lucky to have her!!!
