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 Loveland, CO 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 Loveland, CO 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?

There may have been times in your life when you’ve had a sneaking suspicion that your family isn’t quite “normal.” Everyone has strange quirks, an odd sense of humor, or the ability to make any situation feel awkward. Your family may have embarrassed you in public, enraged you in private, or ruined your teenage life, but you loved each other unconditionally through it all.

The truth is, nobody’s family is quite “normal.” Families are all made up of unique individuals, some with more character quirks or flaws than others. When you have a large group of people bound together by genetics or marriage, you’re bound to have a wide variety of personalities, preferences, and your fair share of disagreement.

All families share highs and lows as they move through life together, but sometimes the lows outweigh the high points. Unexpected life events, illness, and other issues can spark discord among family members or uproot family systems altogether.

Fortunately, you don’t have to break up the band or endure repeated screaming matches over Sunday dinner. If your family is struggling through a difficult period or having trouble seeing eye to eye, family counseling at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, can help you all get back on track and restore peace within your household.

Should We Consider Family Therapy?

There is no wrong time or reason to seek family therapy or counseling. Family therapists or counselors can help families resolve conflict or pull them from the depths of a major crisis. But they can also help you maintain and strengthen healthy, happy family relationships.

Some of the most common reasons people decide to pursue family therapy or counseling include the following:

  • Difficulty communicating with one another
  • Behavioral problems in children or adults
  • Conflicting parenting styles
  • Blending families
  • Financial issues
  • Major life changes or transitions
  • Mental health issues
  • Grief or loss
  • Stress caused by chronic illness or disability
  • Divorce or separation
  • Trust issues or lack of support
  • Substance abuse or addiction

If any of these specific issues are causing discord amongst your family members, or you’re facing another challenge, consider meeting with a family therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO. Family counseling can help you overcome the issues that are dividing you and rebuild healthy family relationships.

What Are the Benefits of Family Therapy?

Family therapy or counseling does more than resolve conflict and clear the air between family members. Group sessions can teach you and your family members how to better understand and accept one another, giving you tools to peacefully solve problems and maintain healthy relationships.

Any family member who is able and willing to participate in sessions is welcome at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO. Of course, there are times and circumstances when some family members can’t attend group counseling. Distance and busy schedules create some obstacles, but more serious issues like illness, disability, addiction, incarceration, or estrangement can also prevent entire family units from attending sessions together. These specific issues also tend to cause distress or frustration for families. You can still address and work through how those situations affect you all individually and as a group.

Some family members may benefit from individual therapy in addition to family counseling. Depression therapy, anxiety counseling, or addiction counseling may prove beneficial to some individuals and improve overall family dynamic and communication.

Family counseling can help you and your family members be more mindful and tolerant of one another’s differences. You’ll learn how to embrace the things that make you different, work together as a cohesive unit, and resolve disagreements easily and amicably.

When you’re ready to begin repairing your family relationship, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, are ready to guide you through the next steps. We accept many major health insurance plans, and you might be able to see a provider within just 24-48 hours after reaching out.

I am very happy to offer my highest recommendations for a therapist working with the community at Thriveworks. Here is an example of what it is like to be in Linda Armendariz’s care. We had a family session with Linda. She spoke with each of us beforehand, to have a clear understanding of what each person hoped to accomplish. She was a calming presence throughout our session, gently bringing us back to the issues we wanted to address and helping us hear what was being said. Our common goal was to really understand each other and to be heard. As parents we wanted to support our adult son without enabling him, showing high expectations with a lot of warmth. We were mostly struggling with boundaries, which was confusing to him. In the end we came to a very clear and actionable plan with goals and dates. We each had assignments that we could accomplish. It was agreed that we would work together, openly. We agreed to communicate as a group moving forward. Respect has been key. Linda models what she says. She is intuitive and to the point, so time is used wisely. I believe that anyone who gets to work with Linda will grow steadily!
