Family therapy attempts to understand the context of the behaviors in order to figure out how to change the whole system.
Every family faces challenges, but there are times when those challenges and the tension that comes with them can create negative patterns within the family. When those negative patterns progress, they can spiral, leaving families without the ability to see a resolution.
Family therapy is short-term group counseling designed to address an issue or conflict between several members of the same family.
Although family therapy isn’t a new concept, it’s one that many people aren’t familiar with. The idea of sharing one’s personal thoughts and feelings with someone else can sometimes seem awkward or uncomfortable. I get it — but I also find that when my clients experience family therapy and work through challenges together, they often find that the discomfort and awkward feelings are worth the renewed sense of togetherness and peace that comes from sharing.
Family therapy isn’t meant to solve every single problem your family faces — it’s designed to help your family work through conflict in a safe, secure environment.
Every family has different challenges and requires different solutions to overcome those challenges, and I’d love to opportunity to help your family.
