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 Pflugerville, 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 Pflugerville, 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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
