What Is Family Therapy? How Can It Help Me?

Family therapy helps families address a variety of issues that affect their relationships with one another. A family therapist’s main mission is to help these individuals improve family dynamics and relationships, which will benefit the health and wellbeing of each member. Common issues that come up between family members include those that follow major life changes, such as a divorce or move, and the development of a mental illness, such as depression or addiction. Sometimes, family therapy supplements another form of treatment, and at others, it is the primary treatment.

Many different families can find value in working with a family therapist, especially if they are experiencing stress or in a tough situation. Here is a list of common stressors and conflicts among family members:

  • Mental health concerns, like depression or substance abuse
  • The death or loss of a loved one
  • Divorce or separation
  • Behavioral problems, rebellion in children
  • Financial trouble

The Thriveworks Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck) family therapists want to welcome you to therapy and help you get back to a place of love.

How Can Family Therapists Help? What Are Their Qualifications?

Family therapy is conducted by qualified, licensed therapists: licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) to be more specific. These individuals have worked hard to gain unique skills, knowledge, and experience helping families improve their relationships. Other mental health professionals, such as social workers, might also use techniques from family therapy in their work, if they have undergone family therapy training.

In most cases, family therapy is short-term, in that families will go for an average of 9 or 10 sessions. In other cases, family therapy lasts longer, in order to meet the needs of the family at hand. Additionally, every session varies in what is discussed as well as who attends. Your Thriveworks Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck) will guide you and help you make these decisions.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
