Better Communication. Stronger Bonds. Less Conflict.
No matter the structure or size of your family, maintaining a balanced & healthy dynamic can be incredibly challenging. Sometimes, ongoing / unresolved conflict or communication issues can impact family members and create big feelings. Or a family might be reeling from a specific loss, change, trauma or other factor that shifts everyone & everything. Family psychotherapy can be an effective treatment in both situations.
Family psychotherapy is a process where (ideally) all of the members of a primary family meet together with a trained mental health professional in a series of safe, affirming, and confidential group sessions. The goals of family therapy are to create the tools, boundaries & rules that can enable effective communication, reduce conflict, and help each family member develop individually and feel connected to the family unit. Family therapy is sometimes the primary treatment; it can also be complementary to individual or relationship psychotherapy for one or more family members.
Family therapy can help members with feelings of / reactions to grief, anger, sadness, depression, anxiety, conflict or disconnection. It can also help members work together to navigate issues within the family, such as:
- Separation or divorce
- Blended families / raising step or adopted children
- Sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity & expression
- Ineffective communication
- PTSD & Trauma
- Emotional, physical, or sexual abuse
- Mental health or behavioral issues
- Substance abuse
- Developmental delays or physical disabilities
- Improve communication and relationships between parents and children
