What is your go-to approach for family therapy?

To help people in family therapy, a clinician will assist in creating space for the family to interact in a more positive and effective manner by teaching communication tools.

What tools do you teach in family therapy?

In family therapy, one can expect to learn:

  • Better communication tools (i.e. to speak without defensiveness, judgement, or criticism)
  • How to validate someone that is speaking (i.e. acknowledging their feeling and empathizing)
  • Emotions and tools for connection
  • How to gain more information and better understand others when they speak
  • More about the thoughts and emotions of yourself and others.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in family therapy?

Clients will know they are making meaningful progress in family therapy when they are able to utilize tools that they have learned in therapy in their day-to-day life and have more confidence in navigating interactions and/or discussions since the onset of treatment.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement family therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in family therapy with journaling, self-reflection, and efforts of utilizing tools outside of sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting family therapy?

To prepare for their first family therapy session, an individual can 1) identify the items you want to focus on and 2) have an answer to: “I will know therapy has benefitted us when _____.” (What’s your goal of coming to therapy?)

Starting Family therapy

What is family therapy?

Family therapy helps families resolve conflicts and strengthen their relationships. It is led by qualified mental health professionals like psychologists, licensed professional counselors (LPCs), and licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) who have extensive training in family dynamics and group communication.

How does family therapy work?

Thriveworks family therapists in The Woodlands, TX usually begin by asking what everyone’s goals are for family counseling. Family members may need help with very specific issues or with general relationship functioning. But there are three main purposes in family counseling: to educate, to counsel, and to strengthen. Thriveworks also offers online family therapy and in-person services, so you may all meet in an office together or join a video call from your home depending on everyone’s location and availability.

What is the most effective family therapy?

The most effective form of Family therapy will often depend on the family itself, as there are many types of family therapy for therapists to use as they see fit in order to best meet the needs of their clients. However, one of the most commonly used types of family therapy is structural family therapy (SFT). SFT focuses specifically on family dynamics and interactions, looking at how they shape the relationships and structure present in the family. It can be effectively used to treat a variety of concerns.

How do I know if my family needs therapy?

This answer often looks different to each family that starts family therapy. However, some signs that your family might need to consider family counseling include frequent fights or misunderstandings, constant tension, experiencing loss, behavioral issues, marital issues, divorce, and blended family issues, among others.

What is included in family therapy?

In family therapy, therapists will often start by asking questions and assessing individual and family dynamics. From there, they may employ therapeutic techniques such as structured family therapy, CBT, strategic family therapy, and more depending on the present concerns and conflicts. From there, a therapist will work to open lines of communication between family members and facilitate emotional healing and growth.

What is the success rate of family therapy?

Family therapy can be incredibly successful, with some studies reporting a success rate of almost 90% for improving participants’ emotional and mental health, and around 66% for improving their physical health.

Is family therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks therapists in The Woodlands, TX offer both online family therapy and in-person family therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does family therapy last?

Family therapy is usually short term and solution-focused, with most families accomplishing their goals in 12 sessions or fewer. However, it can also last for longer if the probles at hand are more complex — and that’s okay, too.

Need more help deciding?

When you think of family, what comes to mind? Some people remember a white picket fence, family camping trips, dinners at the table together every night, and days full of “I love you.” Others only dream of this vision.

When you think of family, maybe arguments, hurt feelings, neglect, or tragedy come to mind instead. Are you close with your parents, your siblings, your children, or are you currently in a tough spot?

Families go through challenges, and it’s normal. However, there’s a difference between bickering and making up within the hour and fighting and not speaking for weeks, months, even years at a time. When arguments get out of hand, communication plummets, or you just can’t seem to connect with your kids on a deeper level, it might be time to seek out a little extra help from a trusted family therapist.

A family doesn’t have to be perfect; it just needs to be united.” – Unknown

Fortunately, when times get tough, family therapists can help you put the pieces back together. You might feel tempted to walk away and leave your family relationships behind. But just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. If you think the relationships with your family members could be saved, consider family therapy at Thriveworks The Woodlands, TX. Our counselors can help you and your loved ones live happy, healthy lives with stronger bonds and better communication. If you’re ready to get started, give us a call at (281) 667-9790. We can provide you and your relatives with in-person or online therapy today.

How Can Family Therapists Help?

Family therapy is designed to help families work through their problems and improve their relationships. It serves as a guide to help you and your loved ones make meaningful changes that will benefit everyone involved. For example, family therapy can help work through:

  • Communication problems
  • Marital conflicts such as infidelity and lack of affection
  • Financial crisis, stress, and/or strain
  • Parenting issues
  • The loss of a loved one
  • Mental illnesses, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD
  • Addiction or substance abuse
  • Child rebellion
  • Arguments and conflicts
  • Lack of trust

Here at Thriveworks Counseling in The Woodlands, TX, we can help you and your relatives come together to work through the problems in the list above, and more. Your family therapist can help you address these issues and work through them, no matter if your issues are between you and your whole family, or a specific family member.

What Should I Expect in Family Therapy?

When you decide to work with a licensed marriage and family therapist at Thriveworks The Woodlands, you can expect to receive the most dedicated, comprehensive care. To help identify where the root causes are in your relationships, your counselor will assess each family member individually to identify everyone’s unique challenges. In doing so, they can then create a customized treatment plan that focuses on your family unit’s needs, wants, and goals.

Family therapy is short term, meaning you can expect to be finished in 9-12 therapy sessions. If you and your loved ones need more than 12 sessions, that is completely fine. Every family is unique so there is no pressure to be “fixed” in a certain amount of time. When you receive individualized treatment, you can also expect to discuss:

  • The issues that you and your loved ones are going through in an open, honest, and safe space
  • Address the current state of all of your relationships
  • Identify your family’s strengths and weaknesses to build upon and improve them
  • Understand everyone’s individual thoughts, feelings, and opinions to facilitate active listening and better communication skills
  • Understand the individual behaviors that are negatively impacting the family unit as a whole
  • Setting expectations, dynamics, and family roles so that effective problem-solving and understanding can be held moving forward
  • Build up trust and strengthen bonds

You can trust that by working with our counselors, you will be in the hands of highly trained, qualified, and experienced mental health professionals who dedicate themselves to helping families just like yours. We pride ourselves on the compassionate, well-rounded care we give our clients and want to help you succeed as well.
