Pflugerville TX Family Therapy

Counseling and Coaching—Family Therapy in Pflugerville, TX

Families are living systems: each member is interconnected and contributes a part to the whole. The families often work cohesively when each person’s individual needs are met and each person makes meaningful contributions to the group. However, it does not take much to knock a family off balance.

When one person struggles, often, the whole family struggles. Much like an engine in a car: if one piston malfunctions, the whole engine malfunctions. Has your family faced any of these challenges?

  • Is being a parent far harder than you anticipated?
  • Is one person’s anger, anxiety, or frustration affecting other members of the family?
  • Is no communication or poor communication leading to hurt feelings?
  • Is your family growing apart, and you are not sure how to work together again?
  • Is your family repeating hurtful patterns of behavior, over, and over again?

If yes, consider seeking help from a professional counselor. Family therapy has helped many families consider the challenges they face and make adjustments so that everyone feels better.

The counselors at Thriveworks Pflugerville know that being a family is hard. Every family faces unique problems, and our family therapists may have the tools that your family needs to come together again.

Family Therapy Versus Individual Therapy

Family therapy considers each individual as they are placed within the family unit. This may include look at the family’s role, coping mechanisms, expectations, and more. The most common approaches to counseling families are family systems therapy and family structural therapy. These are based upon the idea that families, for good or bad, shape people’s identities and behaviors. Thus, helping the family as a whole function well means each individual member benefits.
Specifically, family therapy may examine how birth order, love languages, and personality type may be contributing to the family’s challenges and what adjustments can be made to help the family function well. Family therapy focuses upon helping families communicate more clearly, become interdependent (but not codependent), and increase harmony within the family unit.

Building a strong family unit has many potential rewards, including …

  1. Reduced risk of poverty with shared expenses and greater income potential
  2. Fewer instances of neglect, abuse, or problems with the law
  3. Increased capacity for handling stress and hardship
  4. Less anxiety and depression-related conditions
  5. Better attachment and greater possibility of children learning healthy relational skills

When Is the Time for Family Therapy?

Think about some of the challenges your family faces. Is more than one person contributing to the problem? Could more than one person contribute to the solution? If so, family therapy may be a good option.

Specifically, consider family therapy if your family is struggling with the following challenges:

  1. Authoritarian/overbearing parenting and rebellious children
  2. Permissive parenting and out-of-control children
  3. Hormonal changes with teens or parents that are contributing to conflict
  4. Special-needs family members and equally distributing care/interaction
  5. Intimacy/love problems in the marriage relationship
  6. Addiction, abuse, and/or neglect in the family
  7. Failure to meet the needs of each family member
  8. Insufficient premarital counseling and/or marriage maintenance
  9. Struggling/hard times as a divorce/separation prevention
  10. Tension/hostility in any relationships

Family therapy is not a magic formula, but it has helped many families breakout of unhealthy patterns and work together in harmony. If the individual members are willing to do the work, a Thriveworks counselor can guide the family toward more peaceful, loving relationships.

The Best Therapist

I have used many different counselors in different cities/states and I have had a phenomenal experience with Deissy Rosenbaum. She has helped with a broad range of issues from cultural assimilation to ADHD to reprocessing childhood trauma through a unique method of EMDR therapy. Because I had her support, I not only made it through a tough year (2020) but am thriving and have made progress in so many areas of my life.

Deissy is the best!

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Grichell is the

Words cannot express how awesome Grichell is!! I’ve seen a few therapists in my life, and by far she has been the only one to quickly figure out a way to explain things to me that make sense. There’s never any judgement, only direct advice and counsel that has helped me so much. I actually enjoy and look forward to my time with her! If you are told she has no openings, just know, she is well worth the wait in line.

Awesome councilors!

I had the pleasure of using Alison Riley for my councilor. She's absolutely wonderful! She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn't the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest, and she was even willing to have some of people I needed to talk to there so it was a neutral environment. I truly appreciate all the support she's provided. I feel like I'm much calmer now and much less anxious. Thank you so much, Alison!

I've had the privilege of working with Veronica and I'm truly grateful for her. It was the first time I felt accepted for who I am and comfortable to speak my truth. She has a very warm and accepting spirit that makes you feel at ease. The atmosphere is inviting and calm that's filled with a sense of peace. I will always recommend Veronica at Thrive Works and thankful for this experience!

Great Staff, Comfortable Surrounding

Visited this office today; the place is beautiful. You do not feel the stuffy, clinical feeling normally associated with a doctor's office. It is so warm and inviting. Joan was there to welcome us with open arms. She was genuinely interested in what we had to say, and we felt very appreciated. From the comfy chairs to the open atmosphere, I would highly recommend this place.
