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 Roseville, CA 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 Roseville, CA 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?

Despite what you might see on your social media feeds, most families don’t get along lovingly all the time. Siblings argue, tensions arise between parents, and families have trouble adjusting to major life transitions like moving, illness, and unemployment. Even commonplace issues like financial difficulties and run-of-the-mill disagreements about chores can escalate and cause lasting resentment among family members.

Ups and downs are normal but if your family relationships are feeling particularly strained lately, know that you’re not alone. Family issues can feel exhausting but our family therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Roseville, CA are here to help. Through family therapy sessions, you can learn how to improve your family dynamics, break hurtful behavioral patterns, and foster a happier home environment.

Is Family Counseling Right for My Family?

Constant arguing, behavioral problems, and poor communication can gnaw away at your family’s health and happiness. After all, it’s hard to stay balanced and at ease in other areas of your life when your home life is fractured. Family issues can contribute to poor performance at work and school and result in lingering feelings of sadness, anger, frustration, and helplessness.

If your family is struggling to communicate, is going through a tough time, or could otherwise use a neutral, third-party perspective, you’d likely benefit from working with a licensed counselor or therapist.

Some of the most common reasons people try family therapy include:

  • Parent-child conflicts
  • Marital problems like divorce or separation
  • Conflicts between siblings
  • Adapting to a major change like moving
  • A chronic illness or death in the family
  • Substance abuse or addictive behaviors
  • Financial disagreements
  • Infidelity
  • Mental illness
  • Disagreements that never seem to resolve

Every family is different. You may be worried because you and your partner fight too often, an elderly parent’s health is failing, your teenager is sneaking out at night, or something else entirely. Whatever the reason, our family therapists can help you take steps to find balance again and rebuild happy family relationships for the long term.

When you’re ready to take the first step, our team of family therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Roseville, CA can help. Give our scheduling team a call or click our booking widget to get started.

How Does Family Counseling Work?

Family therapists have specific training in family dynamics and can work with you to mediate conflicts and provide every member of your family with the necessary tools to work through your issues. During family therapy, your counselor or therapist will listen to your concerns and explore the larger reasons behind the challenges you’re facing.

The confidential discussions between the members of your family and your marriage and family therapist can assist you in improving communications, developing healthy boundaries, addressing dysfunctional interactions, and improving your family’s problem-solving capabilities to prevent future crises from occurring.

A knowledgeable family therapist will assess your concerns and tailor your treatment to address your specific questions, concerns, and goals. If your disagreements always end in a fight with hurt feelings and lingering resentment, family therapy can teach you coping skills to better manage your emotions. If your family is having a difficult time due to the death of a loved one, family counseling can help you find ways to mourn your loss while still re-connecting as a family system.

Some family conflicts are unavoidable but if you can’t seem to break free of destructive or ineffective patterns, help is available. Reach out to us at Thriveworks Counseling in Roseville, CA to make an appointment with one of our licensed family therapists.
