When we argue and have tension in our family unit, it can cause a lot of stress and worry for each individual family member. Is your family:
- Struggling to get along?
- Going through a major life change?
- Having a hard time communicating effectively?
- Dealing with a problem you can’t seem to fix?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you and your family might benefit from the help of a family therapist. When you feel like you can’t even look at your family member or despise the thought of being in the same room with them, it can be really unhealthy for everyone’s sake. Family therapists are trained to help people work through these conflicts and repair relationships in order to start living happier and healthier.
After every storm, the sun will smile; for every problem, there is a solution,
and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”
–William R. Alger

What Is Family Therapy?
Family therapy is similar to traditional one-on-one counseling where a therapist will work to help you resolve problems you are having and help you start moving forward. Family therapy is generally short-term, meaning that most clients will finish in as little as nine sessions. When first starting treatment, your family counselor will sit down and take in every individual’s personal concerns and goals. By doing this, our therapists can get a better understand of the whole situation and identify where the cracks are. Then with this information, they will create a unique plan of action that is specific to your family unit.
This type of therapy will utilize a myriad of different methods and tools to connect with you all on a deeper, more meaningful level. Also, depending on who is present during each session, you can expect your sessions to vary. We understand how everyone responds differently to different methods such as talk therapy, narrative therapy, art therapy, etc. That’s why we will try many different approaches to achieve and overcome the difficulties you are tackling. Some areas we will work to improve on include:
- Communication skills
- Active listening
- Being more compassionate
- Problem-solving skills
- And more!
