Why Family Therapy…because it deals with family pain. - Virginia Satir

Why you may need family counseling?

  •  Have you grown tired of being in conflict with the people you love?

  • Would you like to participate in a co-created bridge between you and your loved ones? 

  • Are you having a hard time blending your families together? 

  • Has there been a significant change in your family structure? A divorce or passing?

  • Is the family unit have a difficult time adjusting to the teen years? 

  • Are you having a hard time adjusting to your child’s transition into adulthood?

  • Is a loved one in treatment for substance abuse or an eating disorder?

Families are unique and diverse in many ways and we all define family differently based on our culture. Nuclear families, single-parent families, extended families, families without children, stepfamilies, and grandparent families; it is clear that family structures and units can take on different forms. A family can have a shared value of life and living and a shared culture. On the other hand, when looking at the individuals in the family, they may have conflicting views based on gender, generation, sexuality, race, or nationality. Where there is love, there is passion and for some families, passion might look like miscommunication, isolation, or avoidance.

What are the benefits of family counseling?

    Different families have different needs and therefore therapy can produce different outcomes. Some benefits of family counseling include: 

  • developing healthy boundaries

  • improving communication

  • Building empathy and reducing daily conflicts

  • Learning how to recognize and honor the needs of each part of the family 

  • improving family dynamics and relationships

  • providing strength and coping tools for family members

  • addressing dysfunctional interactions

  • improving the family’s problem-solving abilities

What can I expect during a family counseling session?

Our first session will be 90 minutes and we will discuss the families’ main concerns, goals, aspirations, and strengths. We utilize a strength-based, evidence-based, systematic approach when working with families.

 

During family sessions, we will: 

  •  explore family roles, rules, and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict — and ways to work through these issues. 

  • Identify your family's strengths, such as caring for one another, and weaknesses, such as difficulty confiding in one another

  • Examine your family's ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions in a productive manner

Sessions onward will be 60 minutes long and will include structured activities to increase communication and team building. Sessions may also include take-home assignments that will be debriefed in the following sessions.
