Starting Family therapy

What is family therapy?

Family therapy helps families resolve conflicts and strengthen their relationships. It is led by qualified mental health professionals like psychologists, licensed professional counselors (LPCs), and licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) who have extensive training in family dynamics and group communication.

How does family therapy work?

Thriveworks family therapists in Jacksonville, FL usually begin by asking what everyone’s goals are for family counseling. Family members may need help with very specific issues or with general relationship functioning. But there are three main purposes in family counseling: to educate, to counsel, and to strengthen. Thriveworks also offers online family therapy and in-person services, so you may all meet in an office together or join a video call from your home depending on everyone’s location and availability.

What is the most effective family therapy?

The most effective form of Family therapy will often depend on the family itself, as there are many types of family therapy for therapists to use as they see fit in order to best meet the needs of their clients. However, one of the most commonly used types of family therapy is structural family therapy (SFT). SFT focuses specifically on family dynamics and interactions, looking at how they shape the relationships and structure present in the family. It can be effectively used to treat a variety of concerns.

How do I know if my family needs therapy?

This answer often looks different to each family that starts family therapy. However, some signs that your family might need to consider family counseling include frequent fights or misunderstandings, constant tension, experiencing loss, behavioral issues, marital issues, divorce, and blended family issues, among others.

What is included in family therapy?

In family therapy, therapists will often start by asking questions and assessing individual and family dynamics. From there, they may employ therapeutic techniques such as structured family therapy, CBT, strategic family therapy, and more depending on the present concerns and conflicts. From there, a therapist will work to open lines of communication between family members and facilitate emotional healing and growth.

What is the success rate of family therapy?

Family therapy can be incredibly successful, with some studies reporting a success rate of almost 90% for improving participants’ emotional and mental health, and around 66% for improving their physical health.

Is family therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks therapists in Jacksonville, FL offer both online family therapy and in-person family therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does family therapy last?

Family therapy is usually short term and solution-focused, with most families accomplishing their goals in 12 sessions or fewer. However, it can also last for longer if the probles at hand are more complex — and that’s okay, too.

Need more help deciding?

Your family members know how to push your buttons; they also know when you need a hug or a shoulder to cry on. These people are those we love unconditionally. That being said, nobody likes tension, arguments, unrest, or constant stress—which can arise within a family often. This is where family therapy can prove helpful and make all the difference.

“In family live, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

If your family is struggling with stress, unrest, tension, or constant arguing, consider scheduling family therapy at Thriveworks Jacksonville. We have therapists who specialize in helping families work through the above, of which might result from financial blunders, mental illness, the loss of a loved one, and so on.

Our family therapists want to help you improve family dynamics and the overall happiness of each family member. If you think you could benefit, give Thriveworks Jacksonville a call at (904) 507-6712. We will help you schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. We’re excited for the opportunity to help you!

Overview: What Is Family Therapy?

Family therapy is a type of counseling aimed at helping family members resolve their conflicts and improve methods of communication. This form of therapy is led by a therapist, psychologist, or social worker. While it ultimately depends on the specific circumstances, family therapy is often short-term. Certain sessions may involve all family members; others might involve just one or a couple of family members.

Your Thriveworks Jacksonville family therapist will structure therapy around your family’s specific situation and needs. That said, it’s likely that you will learn important skills for improving familial relations and connections; your therapist will also help you through stressful times and set you up for success when you run into future problems. Common issues discussed in family therapy include:

  • Financial issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Substance abuse
  • Mental or chronic illness
  • Divorce
  • Blended family adjustments
  • Behavioral issues in children

If these family problems are not properly addressed, individuals may experience continued stress, negative emotions like anger and sadness, isolation, difficulty sleeping, and other negative effects. So, if you think that your family could benefit from working with a family therapist, reach out to Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL.

What Can I Expect from Family Therapy

Let’s take a closer look at the specifics of family therapy. This form of therapy typically brings several family members together to discuss the problem at hand. One session typically lasts about 50-60 minutes, and a family typically goes to 12 sessions. That being said, if your specific needs require less or more, your therapist will adjust. During your actual sessions, each individual can:

  1. Examine and discuss how the family solves problems and expresses emotions
  2. Explore family roles as well as family dynamics or behavioral patterns
  3. Identify the current issues, as well as the needs of each family member
  4. Consider the family’s strengths, such as the level of support there is for each member

Family therapy cannot immediately solve the problems or conflicts that are present in your family. However, it can help you better understand one another and improve each relationship. If this sounds like something you’re interested in and something your family could benefit from, give Thriveworks Jacksonville a call. We want to help.

Their billing is horrible. I signed a payment agreement and they did not honour it. They charged my card for way more than the agreed amount making my account go negative. Cancelled all my appointment and wont be using this service again.

I’ve been dealing with a few stressers before reaching out for help in the psychology space. I reached out mainly because the pain being caused in my relationship. Sarah welcomed me into her network here with such professionalism I felt instantly comfortable with having open and candid conversation. Since then my life has gone through and still going through major changes some good and some bad. I would like Thriveworks and Sarah know that this couldn’t have been a better time for someone like Sarah to open her door for me and coach me through some of things I’ve been going thru and point me in the right direction of how to be the best version of a person I can be. You can tell she is passionate about her work and cares deeply for clients like myself. If there’s ever a time where someone I know needs to talk to someone I will recommend Thriveworks and specifically Sarah if it’s possible. Sarah, keep up the good work. You’re making a positive difference in my life.

I have been so well taken care of with Thriveworks! From the efficient sign-up process, to my outstanding therapist, Vanessa Cumber. Vanessa takes the time to really understand the big events in my life. She helps me reflect, review and challenge my own views about things, when I go to a negative place and get stuck there. Vanessa helps me get to the bottom of why I am so hard on myself. She is teaching me to become my own strongest advocate, instead of staying in my default, of harshest critic. Vanessa has the patience and fortitude of a Saint. I am truly blessed by her, and everyone at Thriveworks! You all are making the world a kinder place!
