Georgetown TX Family Therapy

Therapy for Families in Georgetown, TX—Counseling and Coaching

In a family, every individual is interconnected with every other individual, for better or worse. Families pass down from generation to generation patterns of emotional processing, social behavior, and ethical standards. Whether they love their family of origin or whether they are reacting to it, people are often best understood in the context of their family.

Families often flourish when each member contributes and each member has their needs met, but achieving this balance can be harder than anticipated. Life can easily knock families off equilibrium. Here are just a few examples of challenges that families frequently face:

  • One family member is experiencing frustration or anger that affects other family members.
  • You or your spouse cannot agree on parenting styles, and your children are experiencing behavior problems.
  • Family members are cold and apathetic toward one another.
  • A family pattern is hurting a family member over and over again.
  • Hurt feelings have resulted from poor or lack of communication.

When families are knocked off balance, an outside perspective may help re-establish healthy ways of connection. Family therapy attempts to help families understand the challenges that threaten their family’s equilibrium and how to make adjustments that benefit each individual member and the family as a whole.

Thriveworks Georgetown offers family therapy because we know that every family needs support along the way. Our counselors have helped many families work through their challenges and re-establish balance.

Why Pursue Family Therapy?

The central idea of family therapy is that people’s identities, behaviors, and beliefs are formed in their families of origin, and therefore, individuals are most fully known in the context of their family.

Family systems therapy and family structural therapy are the most common methods for family therapy, and they assert that how a family copes with stress, sets expectations, offers comfort, and defines each individual’s role has significant implications in a person’s life. To understand how these play out in a family’s life, therapists may explore each member’s birth order, love language, and/or personality type. Understanding each individual better and understanding how individuals relate to each other may allow the family as a whole to function more harmoniously.

When families communicate well and when they experience interdependence, they often flourish. Strong families bring many benefits to their members and to the community, including:

  • Decreased risk of poverty (when parents share income potential)
  • More secure attachments can be formed between children and parents (and children may carry these healthy relational skills into their adulthood relationships).
  • Increased emotional connection and comfort from family
  • Increased ability to handle stress and hardship
  • Reduced risk of anxiety disorders and depression-related conditions.
  • Reduced instances of abuse, neglect, or problems with the law.

Working It Out Together

What is your family going through right now? Are multiple people adding to the dynamic (either positively or negatively)? Are multiple people affected by the dynamic? If so, then family therapy may be helpful.

Here are a handful of reasons families have chosen to work through their challenge together in therapy:

  • Hormonal changes in a teen or parent that may be leading to conflict
  • Insufficient premarital counseling and/or marriage maintenance counseling
  • A family member with special needs who has an unequally distributed burden of care
  • Abuse, neglect, and/or addiction
  • Overbearing parenting choices that result in rebellious children
  • Lax parenting choices that result in out-of-control children
  • Intimacy difficulties in the marriage relationship
  • An individual family member with unmet needs
  • Tension/strain in spousal, parent/child, or in-law relationships
  • Times of particular stress such as job loss or death of a loved one

The problems that many families face do not have quick fixes or silver bullets, but they do have solutions if each family member is ready to do their part. Family therapy may be the safe place your family needs to acknowledge an unhealthy pattern, listen to one another, and find a more balanced path forward.

Thriveworks Counseling Georgetown

Ashley

★★★★★
I thought our marriage was over. I only gave him one option (counseling) or I was leaving. I wanted him to do it because he realized he had to make some changes in his thinking and his life...for his own happiness. The first counselor he tolerated for 1 session. I told him to do his own homework and he found Ashley on his own. The fact that my husband has been in her counseling for close to 2 years is truly amazing. This was one man who I totally expected to do 3-4 sessions and then decide it wasn't for him and then I would just consider divorce because our life was intolerable for me. He has learned things about himself that now make him very thoughtful about things and about what matters in his life and in our life. I am so appreciative for Ashley.

Amazing!!!

★★★★★
Absolutely love everything about Lindsey. She is amazing with my son (age 6). It has helped him so so so much and helped me parent the way he needs. I am so glad we were able to start seeing her and continue seeing her. He loves going to therapy and since we started his behavior has become so much better. Being a single mom of two, I'm glad he get specific attention from someone who cares. Thank you! I would give 10 stars if I could.

Excellent therapist

★★★★★
Linda Mikesic is a fantastic therapist and person. She has a compassion and love for others that can’t be taught. Being a mental health care provider, I am always looking for therapists to refer patients to. Therapists I can count on to treat my patients with love and respect. I've known Linda and collaborated with her for 3 years and fits that definition every time. I know when I refer my patients to Linda, that they will get individualized compassionate person-centered care.

Linda Mikesic is amazing.

★★★★★
I started seeing Linda Mikesic in 2016 when my soulmate cat died suddenly and in a horrible way and I was consumed with grief. The death of my cat brought up several unresolved issues in my life and I desperately needed someone to help me and to give me tools to want to wake up in the morning and face life once again. I had gone through a very traumatic experience and Linda walked me though step by step to heal showing me what was broken inside of me and how to move through my grief. I was stuck and she listened to me and was strong and gave me the tools to get unstuck and to feel joy in my life once again. I will be forever indebted to her for showing me the light in life once again. Anyone who can get an appointment with her will be very lucky. She is involved from day one and she cares and is accessible via text and email and from the first session will give you tools and help to make you feel like you can see things in a different way. Such a cool lady and such an amazing professional. I love that she is strong. Just go and see her do not hesitate. She never minimized my grief and I felt tremendously safe and supported by her. She is a ROCK STAR. Forever grateful for meeting this woman.

Linda Mikesic is an outstanding therapist. An active and nonjudgmental professional she had me set realistic and actionable goals that I expected to receive from therapy. Linda's insight provided me a customized process for identifying, understanding and addressing the root causes of my issues. Cognitive therapy at its finest! While I am a work in process Linda was instrumental in assisting me in bringing me to a place where I have never felt better. I will continue to use the tools she provided daily to grow confidently and live a fulfilling life! I enthusiastically recommend Linda. At the same time I encourage you to take responsibility for the assignments she provides so as to facilitate recovery.
