Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


Many of us go through life searching for the key to happiness. While there may not be a definitive answer to this riddle, part of the equation certainly lies in healthy, loving family relationships. Maintaining strong bonds between family members can give us a sense of emotional security, fulfillment, and support.

It’s unfortunately all too common for family members to drift apart from one another or find themselves in conflicts that can span months or years. This can not only deprive us of one of life’s greatest joys and a sense of belonging, but it can also lead to long-term feelings of resentment, frustration, and anger. Those in conflict with their families are also at a higher risk for anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues.

If you’re having trouble with your family, you’re not alone. All families have ups and downs and some issues simply require an outside, experienced perspective to reach a satisfying resolution.

You may find sibling rivalries have spiraled out of control over the years. You may find you resent your parents for your upbringing or feel guilty that you didn’t live up to expectations. You may be struggling with a child’s behavioral issues or a relative’s hurtful comments. Instead of avoiding family gatherings for the rest of your life, it can be infinitely more beneficial to tackle these issues head-on together with the help of a trained family therapist.

If you’ve been experiencing conflict within your family or need help navigating a difficult time, reach out to the marriage and family therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Salt Lake City, UT.

Reasons To Consult With a Family Therapist

Families are highly interconnected, which means something that affects one family member can affect the rest in unpredictable ways. If someone in your family has a mental illness or struggles with substance abuse, it can have a negative impact on the other family members too. This is why therapists spend time getting to know your family and understanding its unique and complex dynamic.

No two families are alike, but many families encounter similar problems. These are several reasons families may seek out family counseling:

  • Separation, divorce, or remarriage
  • Parenting issues
  • Abuse or trauma
  • Substance abuse
  • Loss of a family member
  • Heated arguments that don’t resolve
  • Physical or mental illness within the family
  • Behavioral issues
  • Child-rearing troubles
  • Blending of families
  • Major life transitions

If your family isn’t getting along, this isn’t something you simply need to accept. Licensed marriage and family therapists are standing by at Thriveworks Counseling in Salt Lake City, UT.

What To Expect From Family Therapy Appointments

If you have a hard time imagining your family getting along, you’re not alone. Many families struggle with seemingly insurmountable hurdles but sometimes a neutral perspective is all that’s needed. Our family and couples therapists have helped countless families tackle issues together by opening up lines of communication and finding new solutions to old problems.

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, may be part of your therapy sessions. This form of talk therapy involves a deeper look at your thought processes and how they impact your behaviors and emotions. Many conflicts between family members go so far back you may not remember or understand the deeper issues until you begin to peel back the layers with a trained therapist.

Taking part in therapy sessions can yield many benefits in the long term. Families who participate in marriage and family therapy often leave with increased empathy and a better understanding of how their actions impact those around them. After engaging in talk therapy, you may find it easier to set healthy boundaries without causing further conflict.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Salt Lake City, UT, licensed mental health professionals are standing by to help you improve communication and work towards a healthier family dynamic.
