Mental Health Help for Families in Northeast Raleigh, NC

Mental Health Help for Families in Northeast Raleigh, NC

Natalie’s older sister McKenna has always caused problems in the family. McKenna feels like she’s the black sheep, but Natalie thinks otherwise. To her, McKenna just doesn’t care about other people’s feelings. More recently, the two sisters got into a heated argument that has left them even more divided. Their parents don’t know how to get them to see eye to eye. They feel like they end up making matters worse. 

Jaxon’s parents weren’t very warm and affectionate when he was growing up. He often felt like their maid rather than their son. When he turned 18, Jaxon left his parents’ home to live on his own. He went five years without talking to them until he got an unexpected call. Now, his parents are trying to reconnect with him, but Jaxon is feeling uncertain about it.

In both situations, these families could greatly benefit from talking to a trusted family therapist. Natalie and McKenna need help in learning how to communicate better, whereas Jaxon and his family need to work through past trauma and build up a new relationship. Family therapists have the tools and knowledge to do just that. 

No family is perfect. We argue, we fight. We even stop talking to each other at times, but in the end, family is family. The love will always be there.” – Unknown

What Is Family Therapy? What Can We Expect?

As we have briefly discussed, family therapy is designed to facilitate healthy communication between you and your loved ones. The ultimate goal of family therapy is to walk away with past issues resolved, current challenges eliminated, and a mental toolbox full of problem-solving tips. 

When you start working with a Thriveworks family therapist in Northeast Raleigh, NC, they will design a plan that will best help you and your family members resolve your problems and improve your relationships. To do this, your therapist will work to understand each of you on a deeper level to pinpoint what areas might need the most help. Then they’ll utilize various therapeutic techniques and methods to help you achieve things such as: 

  • Effective communication
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Established familial rolls
  • Stress and anger management techniques

Family therapy is often short-term. This means that a lot of families are able to finish within an average of 9 sessions. Sometimes it does take a little longer to make the progress you need, and that’s okay too! There is no rush or time limit on getting the mental health help you need.

Family Therapy: Tackling All Issues

Are you tired of arguing with your loved ones? Do you have children that just can’t seem to stop fighting? Do your parents invalidate your feelings? Is one of your family members putting a strain on the family unit? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could find great benefits in working with a therapist at Thriveworks. 

The goal of family therapy is to achieve happiness by eliminating past, present, and future conflicts. There are many reasons why families might choose to go to therapy. Some of the more common reasons we see include: 

  • Behavioral problems in children
  • Mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and bipolar disorder
  • Grief and loss
  • Divorce or separation 
  • Lack of communication 
  • Disagreements in values 
  • Sibling rivalry 
  • Trauma 
  • Learning disabilities in children 
  • Major life changes like moving to a new area 
  • Unbalanced familial duties when caring for another family member

If the specific challenge you’re facing isn’t listed above, don’t think we can’t help you. It just would be impossible to list every challenge our therapists can help you work through!
