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 Pasadena, TX 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 Pasadena, TX 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?

Harris and his brother Ramey are at an impasse. They’ve always tended to disagree, but after the last argument, Harris feels like things are too ugly to be resolved. Even though he wants to get along with his older sibling, Harris hates when Ramey starts things up in front of their kids and spouses. Though he’s tried to talk to Ramey, his attempts to reconcile always end in another argument. 

So instead of attempting to resolve things with his brother alone, Harris wants to attend a family therapy session with his brother to sort things through—for real. With a mental health professional there to mediate their dialogue, Harris hopes that Ramey can see the potential that still exists in their connection. Through open communication with a family therapist, it’s possible that the two brothers can mend the damage that’s been done. 

Like Harris and Ramey, you may also feel like you’re at odds with your relatives, and that negative dynamics are controlling your daily life. If that’s the case, then talk to a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX about your family’s situation. Our providers are eager to work with you to eliminate residual hostility, frustration, and tension that’s pervaded your family life. 

Do We Need to Talk with a Family Therapist? 

The decision to partner with one of our family therapists to resolve your family’s current situation is an important, but independent choice. But when you and your family have decided to seek professional assistance, Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX can help to alleviate: 

  • Persistent anxiety over financial issues or relationship difficulties 
  • Undiagnosed mental health conditions or disorders 
  • Alcohol or drug addiction
  • Feelings of resentment or hostility 
  • Unruly behavioral issues in children or teens

These are only a few of the many different ways that our team of providers can help you. If your situation differs, then there’s no need to hesitate to contact us. By talking openly with a family therapist, you’ll provide them the feedback they need to better assist you and your relatives. 

How Can a Family Therapist Help Us?

As we covered, by talking with your family therapist you’ll be giving them a more precise look at the dynamics and situations that are causing issues in your family relationships. With you and your relative’s valuable feedback, our family therapists can help you all to start implementing coping methods and communication strategies. Instead of letting the tension build and the arguments escalate, you’ll learn tactics to defuse tense situations and get better at compromising.

Family therapists can assist you and your relatives by: 

  • Creating and promoting newfound respect for personal boundaries and healthy communication
  • Offering encouragement, enabling you to empathize and compromise with one another 
  • Working through mental health conditions with family members to find new emotional balance and well-being 
  • Having balanced dialogue and candid discussion
