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 Pueblo, CO 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 Pueblo, CO 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?

A family unit can look many different ways, but they all have at least one thing in common: they matter. Family influences our emotions, thoughts, actions, habits, and morals. Whatever your family looks like, it is bound to hold immense love as well as occasionally mess up.

Families teach us how to love and form healthy relationships with other people. That’s a lot of pressure for imperfect people! (We’re all imperfect after all, and that doesn’t make us bad, it makes us human!) But within that truth, comes a breath of relief: all families mess up. All families go through stages of transitioning and encounter challenges. Your family is never broken, just growing.

Sometimes though, it can be nice to heal as a family unit with a professional, empathetic counselor. Pueblo family counselors understand that no family is perfect. We believe that every family can be full of love and growth. Whether you are part of a biological, adopted, foster, or stepfamily, and living in one or two houses, Thriveworks Pueblo has a counselor who is best suited for your unique needs and goals. Call (719) 838-6383 to learn more or schedule a family therapy session today.

How Does Family Counseling with Thriveworks Pueblo Work?

Your family could be the most prepared, future-planning family yet, and you’ll still encounter challenges that seem to come from nowhere. Keeping love and familial commitment as your focus while external circumstances press in around you is not always easy, no matter how strong your family roots are. Coronavirus, financial trouble, a sickness, or mental illness are all things out of your control but demand your response. That can be stressful!

Thriveworks Pueblo works with you and your family to teach the tools you need to not only ride out difficult times but grow from them. We will work with you to:

  • Improve communication
  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Work through current and ongoing disputes
  • Develop a plan to prevent future conflicts

Family Therapy at Thriveworks Pueblo is not meant to change your family structure, but to support the areas that are weaker. Our Pueblo County counselors will always seek to preserve your culture and beliefs. We work with our clients, not try to change them.

There are two basic formats Family Counseling can take:

  • Individual Counseling- a licensed family counselor will talk to each family member individually to address personal needs and how they affect the family as a whole.
  • Group Counseling- some families like to jump straight to group counseling while others prefer to do individual counseling first. Both are effective. In a group session your whole family will talk to the therapist at once.

A few of the focuses a Family Counseling session might have include:

  • Strengthening communication
  • Working through individual concerns (e.g. mental illness, personal stress, fears, etc.)
  • Identifying roles
  • Building on strengths
  • Learning to handle conflict in a healthy manner

A family therapy session with Thriveworks Pueblo will always focus on rebuilding and strengthening. We acknowledge the courage and faith it takes to reach out to a counselor; it is a sign of strength, not weakness. You showing up to counseling is proof that you are willing to fight for the people in your family and push yourself to be better. Thriveworks Pueblo remains inspired by the families who have come to us and grown together.

Could Your Family Benefit from Family Counseling?

No matter what you see on TV or social media, perfect families don’t exist. Every family will have a little bit of chaos. But if all families have bumps in the road, how do you know when it’s time to see a family counselor?

Thriveworks Pueblo wants to make one thing clear: your problems are not too big or too small for counseling. If your family life could be improved by counseling, that’s good enough reason to go! Some families only need a session or two before they are back on track, other stay for longer. Thriveworks Pueblo makes it easy for you to customize the counseling process.

With that being said, there are some common reasons families come to counseling. This includes:

  • The loss of a loved one
  • A career loss or shift
  • Divorce
  • Diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Empty nest
  • Welcoming a new member
  • Substance abuse
  • Academic problems
  • Financial strain
  • Mental health disorder
  • Overworked members

Family Counseling is a time to heal, grow, and prepare for the future together. Your family has a huge impact on your life, so let’s make sure yours is a healthy and happy one. To schedule an individual or group counseling session, or to talk to a counselor about other options, give us a call at (719) 838-6383. We guarantee a session within 48 hours of calling and strive to have no waitlist.
