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 Woodstock, GA 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 Woodstock, GA 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?

It’s said that the most impactful people in your life are the 5 people you spend the most time with. Of course, this could mean your friends, roommates, or even coworkers. However, Thriveworks Woodstock wagers at least some of those spots are filled with your family.

Our families teach us a lot—how to communicate, problem solve, and display love, just to name a few. These are hefty lessons to come from the same people, and the weight of that can push down heavily on families.

If your family isn’t teaching the messages you want it to, it’s okay. It’s never too late to change. Plus, family stress is something every family deals with. There’s not a family out there who hasn’t in some way hurt each other, argued way past bedtimes, or accidentally encouraged the development of bad habits. Families are chaos! But they are also beautiful. Love and positive growth can take place in your family. Thriveworks Woodstock is here to help you get there.

The Family Therapists at Thriveworks Woodstock support families of all structure. Whether you are a part of a biological, adopted, foster, or step family, you all deserve to spend fruitful and loving time together. A perfect family doesn’t exist, but together, we can heal any fissures and start you on a path of heal and love.

What Is Family Therapy?

Life often doesn’t go the way we want. Curveballs and seemingly insurmountable mountains arise at the most inopportune moments. Most of these are completely out of your control, and yet are the source of heartache in many families.

Thriveworks Woodstock Therapists understand that being a family means living with uncertainty, anxiety, and of course, love. We have years of training and experience that have helped families like yours sort through all the bad and come out with the good.

In a family therapy session with Thriveworks Woodstock, you can expect to work through prominent and immediate problems, improve communication and problem-solving skills, and implement plans to prevent future conflict.

But what about the specifics? Family therapy is a broad topic, and it’s that way on purpose. Every family and situation are unique, and so is the counseling process.

For some families, meeting individually before a group session is better suited for their needs. Others are ready to jump right in. How a session functions will also depend on the Thriveworks Woodstock counselor. If you are curious about individual counselors and what they can offer, give us a call today.

A few of the focuses a family therapy 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

Family therapy is about rebuilding and strengthening. It is not a show of weakness that you are seeking help through counseling. Usually it is a show of your strength, courage, and commitment towards each other.

The end goal of Thriveworks Woodstock family therapy will be for you to no longer need counseling. We believe everyone can thrive on their own after being given the right tools and practicing the right mindset.

Could Your Family Benefit from Family Therapy?

If perfect families don’t exist, how do you know it’s time to reach out for help? This is entirely a personal answer! There is not a problem that is too big or too small for our Thriveworks Woodstock Therapists. If there is a disagreement between where your family is and where you want it to be, then we are happy to help you get there.

We commonly see families for:

  • The loss of a loved one
  • A career loss or shift
  • Divorce
  • Diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Empty nest
  • Welcoming a new member
  • Substance abuse
  • Academic problems
  • Financial strain
  • Mental health disorder
  • Overworked members

Every family benefit from Family Therapy, since problems exist in every family. Thriveworks Woodstock is here to teach you the tools so you can take every curve ball life throws.

My 16 yr old daughter had been struggling with mood swings and depression/anxiety for a few years. We tried talk therapy first with a therapist but as she got older, the issues persisted. I contacted Thriveworks to seek out further help and everyone I engaged with was very helpful, very clear about the billing process and the psychiatry care schedule. We have had three sessions now with provider Melissa Gray and the care has been awesome. My daughter's mental health has been great and she is coping with things much better. It had been challenging to find the psychiatric care my daughter needed with other facilities either not taking new patients or being limited in the care provided. Thriveworks answered my call immediately and were able to get our first telemed appt within a few days. I strongly recommend Thriveworks!

I am so thankful to have found counsel with Ms. Porter. She has given me great coping strategies and is diligent in helping me walk through challenges and finding viable solutions. I started counseling in September and believe that I would not be able to navigate through the recent challenges had it not been for extensive counseling with Ms. Porter.

DeShawn provided world-class support for me during a time of transformation and confusion. He sat patiently with me and guided me to better understand my triggers, my strengths and my weaknesses so I can be a more formed person and more importantly, a kinder being to my self. Definitely recommend DeShawn for any therapeutic needs.

I was skeptical about doing therapy online but Ms. Parker made everything really welcoming and it has helped so much. I only write this so that anyone who is also skeptical knows how much Thriveworks has made this a positive experience and maybe they won't hesitate either
