Family Therapy in Tucson, AZ—Pima County Family Therapists
Who are the 5 people you spend the most time with?
This probably depends if we are in a time of social distancing or not. In times of crisis like the COVID-19 response, we don’t always get to choose who the people closest to us are. It could be friends, roommates, coworkers, and most likely, family.
Whoever it is you spend the most time with, research says they are the most impactful people in your life. We imitate and learn from the people around us, and people imitate and learn from us. But what if you aren’t putting out the positive image you want others to learn from?
Families teach us a lot- from how to communicate to how we display love. Thriveworks Tucson knows that no matter how hard we try; we’re bound to mess up. Families are filled with both love and mess, and this isn’t a bad thing! But there is also room for growth. If your family isn’t portraying the lessons you want your loved ones to learn, there is time to change. The potential for love, growth, and healing is always there.
Thriveworks Tucson family counselors offer in-person and online counseling for families of all structures. Whether you are from a biological, adopted, foster, or stepfamily, we can help your family grow and heal together. Give a call to schedule an in-person or online family therapy session today.
What Is Family Counseling?
Families face a lot of uncertainty and unforeseen events. The ability to ride through difficulties while keeping love at the center isn’t always easy. Many of the obstacles you and your family are facing are completely out of your control. Coronavirus, the economy, sickness, and mental illness are some examples.
Thriveworks Tucson can work with your family via in-person counseling sessions or online therapy to improve communication and problem-solving skills, work through current disputes, and find ways to prevent future conflicts.
Family therapy is built to fill whatever role you need it to. The counselors in Pima county values the diversity of our families and we seek to maintain the authenticity of your culture and beliefs. We work with you, not seek to change you.
One of the ways Thriveworks Tucson accomplishes this is through individualizing each session. Some families choose to meet individually before a group session. Others jump into a group session. What works for you can be discussed with your family therapist over the phone or through email before you begin.
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
The core foundation of family counseling is rebuilding and strengthening. Seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. It means you are willing to fight for the people in your family and be vulnerable with them. Thriveworks Tucson thanks you for having that courage today.
Could Your Family Benefit from Family Counseling?
Perfect families don’t exist- we all get on each other’s nerves and cause a little chaos. So how do you know when your family needs counseling?
There is no definitive line for when you “need” therapy, it is a subjective decision based on where you are in your familial relationships and where you want to be. There is not a problem too big or too small for Thriveworks Tucson. If you think counseling could benefit your family emotionally, mentally, or behaviorally, give us a call today. We are happy to talk with you and help you decide.
We commonly see families for:
- The loss of a loved one
- A career loss or shift
- Diagnosis of a chronic illness
- Empty nest
- Welcoming a new member
- Substance abuse
- Academic problems
- Financial strain
- Mental health disorder
- Overworked members
Every family can benefit from family therapy, since problems exist in every family. Thriveworks Tucson family counseling is here to teach you the tools so you can thrive together. If you want to schedule an online counseling or in-person counseling appointment, give us a call today.
