When a family finds itself in conflict or struggling to connect with other members, they may start to withdraw or argue instead of effectively communicating to solve the issues. Family therapy supports families in managing conflict, improving communication, building healthy boundaries, and establishing fulfilling relationships.
It also helps to heal broken relationships, stop arguments, and restore feelings of connection with one another. When healing and change begins, you and your family will start to feel heard, understood, loved, and united.
What to expect from Family Therapy?
When you come into Family Therapy or family counseling, the first session will be with the whole family together. However, after this, we will often see the family in multiple configurations.
Doing this allows our therapists to address the needs of all the unique relationships within the family structure, and identify the best approach to support your family as a whole in creating lasting change.
Family Therapy supports families and solves issues by:
- Decreasing conflict
- Defining roles and family expectations
- Establishing a connection between members
- Identifying positive coping strategies
- Improving ways to work together
- Increasing and improving communication
- Rebuilding trust
- Setting boundaries
