Family Therapy – Counselors, Coaches and Therapists in Lynchburg
The family unit is an important part of our culture. In many ways, it defines us. We work hard to provide for our children. We plan for the future. We do our best to care for the needs of each family member. Although ours roles and family dynamics have changed throughout the years, the goals have stayed the same. What was important to the family 50 years ago is still important today. We desire happiness, quality time together, life-long bonds, and leaving a lasting legacy.
So what happens when life throws an unexpected curveball? How do we recover when we experience loss and find ourselves ambushed by grief? What do we do when we’re faced with challenges that threaten to shake our families to the core?
Two things are true for all families: 1) Every family will experience change, and 2) How it responds to change will determine its ability maintain healthy and lasting bonds.
Family dynamics can change in the blink of an eye, creating ripple effects that reach farther than we could anticipate. Sudden disruptions can leave us blindsided and confused and can include the following:
- The death of a family member
- The loss of a job
- An accident resulting in permanent injury or disability
- Financial crisis
- Loss of a home
Subtle disruptions can appear slowly over time, sometimes at no fault of our own. By the time we attempt to address them, they’ve taken root in the family system and are nearly impossible to control without professional support. These include:
- A physical illness, such as Alzheimer’s disease
- Mental illness
- Domestic abuse
No one ever set out to have a dysfunctional family, but we often find ourselves in difficult circumstances and ask, “How did we get here?”
You’re not alone. Your family is worth saving. You can get back on track.
