Therapy for Families in Wilbraham, MA
Every family is subject to fights throughout the years. No amount of money and resources can prevent arguments from coming up. Take the most loved and hated family in America, the Kardashians, for example. Even with unlimited family vacations, a hair and makeup team, in-home chefs, and cars for every day of the week, they still fight like every other family. While you and your loved ones problems might not be over the newest iPad being exchanged for something different, they are still valid and worth talking through. When fights with your relatives aren’t fixed and mended, it can cause major rifts throughout the whole family that lasts longer than needed. Instead of letting miscommunication further ruin your closest relationships, reach out for a helping hand at Thriveworks in Wilbraham.
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” – Richard Bach

What is Family Therapy?
Family therapy helps family members resolve conflicts and deepen connections. It’s usually short-term, meaning that you and your loved ones can be finished in as little as nine therapy sessions. We do understand that every situation is unique, as is every family, so if you need more than nine sessions, that is completely fine. There is no rush or deadline for how quickly you resolve the challenges at hand. Your family therapist will sit down with each family member in attendance to better understand their unique problems and goals. Doing so allows the mental health professional to better identify where the cracks are in your relationships in order to come up with a treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals.

Like we have briefly touched on, family therapy is for any and every type of family and their unique challenges.
