Family relationships are not always a walk in the park. Families share in their loved ones’ joy and happiness and encourage one another during times of struggle or sadness. But they also put each other down, fight, and say things they don’t mean. There may be times that you feel you could conquer the world together and days when you can’t stand to be in the same room.
All families are made of unique, complex individuals with distinct personalities and preferences. Every once in a while, your differences may drive a wedge between you, especially if outside factors are causing added stress or tension.
At the end of the day, your family relationships are important — they can have a direct effect on your mood, thoughts, mental health, and overall well-being.
Maintaining healthy, happy relationships isn’t always easy, but it’s okay to ask for help, especially when those relationships mean so much to you. The family therapists at Thriveworks in Tuscaloosa, AL can help your family navigate difficult situations, and show your family how to build meaningful relationships that last a lifetime.
Should We Consider Family Therapy?
Your family doesn’t have to be at war to benefit from counseling. People come to family counseling for a wide variety of reasons, but typically with the common goal of strengthening their relationships and improving their family systems.
A family therapist can help you work through a variety of issues, including the following:
- A lapse or breakdown in communication
- Major life changes
- Grief or loss
- Behavioral problems in children or sibling rivalries
- Differing parenting styles
- Financial changes or disagreements
- Mental health issues
- Blending families
- Marriage, childbirth, or adoption
- A shift in family roles or dynamic
- Substance abuse or addiction
Whether your family is struggling with any of these specific issues or facing your own unique set of challenges, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Tuscaloosa, AL can help — and more quickly than you might think. We can often accommodate new clients within 24 to 48 hours and would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family either at our Tuscaloosa office or remotely via phone or video.
What Can We Expect From Family Therapy?
Family therapy can help you resolve conflict or cope with the loss of a loved one, but it can also leave you with tools and techniques to build and maintain stronger relationships long term. Your family therapy sessions will be uniquely tailored to the specific issues your family is facing.
When you decide to pursue family counseling, your family therapist will get to know each of you on a personal level to better understand your individual experiences, perceptions, and the way your personalities interact and react to one another. Some members of your family may also require individual therapy to achieve the best possible outcome, such as depression therapy or addiction counseling.
Each family member who is willing and able to participate in therapy sessions is encouraged to join. These sessions will focus on uncovering the issues that causing tension or conflict and finding solutions that make sense for everyone. Our licensed professionals are experts at finding new solutions to old problems and can also teach you valuable skills including active listening, problem-solving, and peaceful conflict resolution.
