Family Therapy in Jacksonville, FL (West)—Family Therapists and Counselors

The people we are closest to have the ability to cause us a great amount of pain. This is a tough pill to swallow. But the truth is that our family members—our parents, our children, our sisters, and our brothers—know exactly what buttons to press; they know how to get what they want or need from us; they know how to annoy, enrage, and frustrate us to no end. And sometimes this can lead to a major fight or even separation of family members for a short or long period of time.

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” –Richard Bach

So, what does one do when there is major discord in their family? The answer to this question will depend on the particular problem and family. Fortunately, working with a family therapist can help you determine the right answer for you and your family. Family counselors have specific skills, training, and experience related to helping peoples through difficult times.

Can We Benefit from Working with a Family Counselor?

Family therapy can prove valuable to many families, including those that aren’t getting along as well as those who simply want to improve their relationships. In either case, family therapy can help you to work through stress, pain, mental illnesses, and other difficult times together. To be more specific, family counselors can help you and your family members accomplish the following:

  • Properly grieve the loss of a loved family member
  • Adjust to a new normal after making a major life change
  • Better cope with stressors, such as financial strain
  • Manage rebellion in kids or teenagers
  • Develop greater love and respect for one another

Grief and loss, major life transitions, stress, and parenting issues are common obstacles that stand in the way of a happy, healthy family dynamic. Fortunately, a therapist with the right knowledge and experience can help you work through these challenges and strengthen the family unit.

How Does Family Therapy at Thriveworks Jacksonville Work?

Here at Thriveworks Jacksonville, our family therapists approach every single case with a personalized treatment plan. They will get to know you and your family members, as well as the problems you are experiencing, and then they will come up with an individualized plan that is meant to best help you. That said, you can likely expect for treatment to be short-term, as many families attend an average of 9 session, each lasting about 50-60 minutes. The specifics vary, but you can trust that your Thriveworks therapist will be sure to keep your best interest in mind and at heart.

Often, family therapy treatment uses cognitive behavioral therapy techniques as well as those rooted in psychodynamic therapy. Again, your family therapist will assess your specific needs and then use the techniques that will prove most beneficial to you and your family members.

Thriveworks Counseling Jacksonville (West)


Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed working with Erin. She has my best interest at heart which is very important to me. I love how attentive and empathic Erin is towards my needs, and I am close to meeting my therapeutic goals. I have learned that life is a journey, and we should work on improving ourselves daily. I would most definitely recommend Erin to anyone who may need therapy, and I would work with her again. Thank you, Erin

I was very satisfied with the therapy session that Ms. Erin provided for me. I was initially reluctant to try a online session but she put me at ease!! I am very relieved that my first session was great. Ms. Erin provided great conversation and perspective! I can’t wait until my next session.

Ms. Jessica Bailey

In my time working with Jessica, I have experienced nothing but kindness and empathy from her. Jessica fully listened to my concerns and helped me work through overwhelming situations on multiple occasions. Jessica provided non-judgmental support without being overbearing. I would definitely work with Jessica again and recommend her to anyone in need of support.
