Family Therapy in Salem, MA — Family Therapists and Counselors
Does your family struggle to get along? Is there something impacting your relationships with them? Do you feel like there is nothing you could say that would make them actually hear what you want them to hear? Consider these following scenarios to see if you can relate:
You feel like your sibling is taking advantage of your parents. Your sibling works a full-time job, makes good money, yet still expects your parents to pay for things in their life. It stresses you out and you don’t understand why your parents put up with it.
You have to live at home with your parents right now because you lost your job and are searching for a new one. Every night you go downstairs to eat dinner, you somehow manage to get into an argument with your mom or dad over the smallest of issues.
You felt abandoned by your parents when you were younger when they were struggling financially. You barely saw them, and you felt like you had to be your own parent at times. Now that you are older and have a family of your own, your parents have tried rekindling their relationship with you. You are having a hard time opening up to them.
You and your spouse are getting a divorce and it is causing your children a lot of stress. You both don’t want them to see you fighting.
Are you and your family going through something similar to these scenarios? Is there something that you are all going through at you know could be fixed if everyone was able to speak their minds in a safe space? There are family therapists at Thriveworks Salem Counseling who would love to help your family. To get started, just give us a call at (508) 392-4269.

What Can We Expect at Family Therapy?
The therapists at Thriveworks Salem are licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT). These professionals have the training and knowledge needed to not only understand and empathize with families going through challenges, but give families the tools they need to fix past trauma and overcome future obstacles.
Family therapy is often short-term, meaning you will finish out this process within as few as 9 or 10 sessions. When you begin, your therapist will take each individual family member’s needs and concerns into consideration prior to coming up with a plan of action. It is important to understand the family unit at an individual level to better see where the cracks are.
Each session may vary in terms of what is discussed with your psychologist. They will likely use a range of effective techniques but will always prioritize helping your family build:
- Empathy and trust within each other
- Safe and comfortable relationships
- Effective communication skills
The family therapists at Thriveworks Salem will do their best to help you and your family members work through the problems that are affecting your relationships.
