Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.
Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from child and family therapy.
Why Do People Seek Family Counseling?
- Parent-child conflict
- Problems between siblings
- Domestic violence
- Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of these situations resonate with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can help in many ways.
What Does Family Counseling Do?
- Teaches strategies to develop and maintain boundaries.
- Fosters a sense of cohesion and communication among family members.
- Promotes problem-solving through an understanding of family patterns and dynamics.
- Builds empathy and understanding.
- Reduces family conflict.
Family therapy can include the whole family or a subset of the family unit. A family therapist can help children and teens express feelings to parents in a safe environment while learning to use healthy and supportive communication.
Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders, and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
