Family Therapy in Miami, FL—Family Therapists, Counselors, Psychologists
Imagine: You and your husband are finally empty nesters. You start to transform one of your spare bedrooms into a gym when your daughter calls and says she’s moving back in. Then, a month into her living back at home, you get a call that your son was in a bad accident and had to get surgery. Now with both of your adult children back at home, there are fights, bickering, and name-calling like they’re back in middle school. On top of this, you just found out that your sister was caught stealing money from your parents. Nothing can go right. One minute you’re relishing in freedom and the next you’re Dr. Phil.
The more I can keep a relationship free of judgment and evaluation, the ore this will permit the other person to reach the point where he recognizes that the locus of evaluation, the center of responsibility, lies within himself.” –Carl R. Rogers

Our team of family therapists is trained and experienced with helping families like yours work through their issues and start living a happier, more harmonious life. To get started, give us a call.
Family Therapy: Helping You Identify Problems

However, letting things go on for longer than they should can actually make matters worse. If you feel like there is something going on at home that could benefit from changing and moving on from, consider working with a family therapist. We can help you identify the root cause of your challenges and help you move on. Here are a few common reasons why clients seek help from Thriveworks Miami Counseling:

What Can We Expect from Family Therapy?
Family therapy may seem scary at first. Here is what you can expect it to look like! Beginning with your therapist, you and each of your family members will speak openly about your unique needs, goals, and concerns. Using everyone’s information, your therapist will create a customized treatment plan that aims to fix the cracks and repair the family as a whole. Not only will your family counselor help mend the problems you are currently facing, but they will also equip each of you with coping mechanisms and tools to use when future conflicts arise. Some of the services provided by family therapists include:
- Explore ways to move forward that work for every family member
- Diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders
- Heal trauma and facilitate building new bonds
- Encourage all family members to share and understand experiences
- Promote healthy communication techniques
