Family Therapists in Cumming, GA—Forsyth Therapy, Counseling for Families

Families are systems—each person is interconnected with all the other members. Everyone contributes and receives in some valuable way… at least, when families are working together harmoniously. But it is common knowledge that life can throw families out of tune. It happens to every family at some point: a crisis or on-going challenge makes working together difficult.

Maybe parenting is more difficult than you expected, and your children are displaying behavioral problems. Maybe one family member is facing anxiety or depression that affects other family members. Maybe lack of communication has led to distant relationships. Maybe a family pattern is playing out again and hurting other members.

Re-establishing healthy ways of relating is hard, but worth the effort. When the family as a whole becomes healthier, often the individuals in the family reap the benefits. Family therapy may be able to help your family work through its challenges and re-establish harmony. Thriveworks Cumming in Forsyth County offers family therapy because we know it is normal for families to face difficult challenges. Unique families have unique problems, but therapy has equipped many people with the tools they need to overcome the problem and grow closer in the process. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

How Could Family Therapy Help?

The foundation of family therapy is the idea that—for better or for worse—families shape people’s beliefs, behaviors, and identities. Understanding an individual means understanding the context of their family. A family’s expectations, roles, and coping mechanisms are important concepts for understanding an individual’s expectations, roles, and coping mechanisms.

Because family members are interdependent, helping the family as a whole often means that individual members are helped. For example, a therapist may explore each individual member’s love language, personality type, and/or birth order so that families can form patterns of behavior that respect each individual’s needs and gifts. As families communicate well as a whole, individuals benefit. Working through problems to strengthen your family will likely be worth your effort. Possible benefits include…

  • Fewer anxiety and depression-related conditions
  • Less instances of abuse and neglect
  • Improved coping skills for managing adversity and stress
  • Greater potential for income as shared earners with a reduced risk of poverty
  • Better relational attachment with the possibility of children learning relational skills

Cause to Start Family Therapy

Think about what your family is going through right now. Are several people affected by a challenge or crisis? If yes, family therapy may be a good option. Clients have chosen family therapy at Thriveworks Cumming, GA in Forsyth County for a variety of reasons, including…

  1. Overly-indulgent parenting style and out-of-control children.
  2. Authoritative parenting style and rebellious children.
  3. A special-needs family member with unequally distributed care/interaction.
  4. Lack of intimacy in the marriage relationship.
  5. Hormonal changes with parents or adolescents that may be causing or making a conflict worse.
  6. A family member (or members) with unmet needs.
  7. Insufficient/no premarital counseling and/or marriage maintenance therapy.
  8. A family member facing a mental illness.
  9. Hostility/tension in relationships.
  10. Crises as a sudden job loss or family death.

Family therapy is not magic or a quick fix. Each family member must contribute and be willing to put in work. But when families work together and find solutions, then they can often break harmful patterns and relate in healthy ways. Thriveworks Cumming therapists are ready and willing to guide families on their journey toward peaceful, loving relationships.

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support. Our experience with Thriveworks has been excellent, and we are happy to offer our highest review and recommendation for anyone looking to make parenting just a bit easier. Thank you for your continued support.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
