Ask anyone what is most important to them in life and they’ll likely say their family. These are the people we care about more than anything else in the world—we love and support them and they love and support us. They also, in more ways than one, define us. We hope to find that life partner, and we hope to raise beautiful children. We work hard to make our parents proud, and we work hard to provide for our spouse and our kids.
“Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights. And our comfort when we occasionally falter.” –Brad Henry
All of that being said, family matters aren’t always rainbows and butterflies. Because these people play such significant roles in our lives, we’re bound to run into challenges: we’re certain to disagree, argue, and experience difficulties that threaten the very fabric of our families. So, when this happens, what do we do? What should we do?
You don’t have to face these challenges blindly. Instead, you can work with a family therapist who is trained to help people with problems that cause strain on their family. If your family has been confronted with a serious problem, encountered a curveball, or is struggling in any other sense, a family therapist at Thriveworks Charlotte can help. Take charge of the fate of your family and let us assist you.
Is My Family in Trouble?
It’s normal to fight and disagree with our loved ones. However, there are some particularly difficult experiences within the family dynamic that can threaten our mental health and wellbeing. These include:
- The death of a loved one
- Serious injury or disability
- Financial strain
- Loss of a home or job
- Diagnosis of a serious illness
- Domestic abuse
If your family is afflicted by one of the above crises, it’s important you seek professional help. These challenges pose a particularly dangerous threat of seriously harming one’s health and wellbeing, not to mention changing your family dynamic as you know it. You might feel hesitant to reach out for help because you’re embarrassed about your current situation. However, you shouldn’t be. Counselors dedicate their work to helping clients out of whatever rut they’re in. They understand, better than anyone else, that life comes with its unique challenges and we can’t always solve these problems alone. They don’t just want to help, they are eager to help.
How Can Family Therapy Help?
While resolving your family issues might feel impossible, the truth is that we do have the power to resolve our differences… sometimes we just don’t know how or where to start. That’s where a family therapist comes in. Family therapists can:
- Instill healthy systems for sorting through disagreements amongst family members.
- Equip family members with helpful tools for communicating more effectively.
- Explore and discuss ways for the family to support one another.
The therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Charlotte are devoted to helping families through or over whatever obstacle stands in front of them. Additionally, they want to help families stay strongly connected and continue to support each other through the ups and the downs of life.
