Family Therapy is helpful when there are tensions within your family system.
Do you feel like you’re not being heard?
Are there significant underlying issues between family members that need to be discussed?
Are intergenerational differences making it hard to connect?
Even if you all grew up in the same household, siblings can be very different people. Large age gaps, natural differences in personalities, contrasting values or beliefs, and other factors can lead to conflicts at home between loved ones.
These challenges and living arrangements can result in disagreements, disengagement, and even serious conflict.
With the support of family counseling, you can improve your relationships, create authentic communication and respect, and begin to heal past or current emotional wounds. In counseling, each family member will have an opportunity to express their point of view, feel validated, heard, and better understood.
If you family is struggling with some of the following challenges, family therapy is the right intervention.
– There is a lack of honest or respectful communication within the family
– You feel disconnected, angry, or upset about the behavior of other family members.
– You or other family members feel isolated and alone
– There are feelings of judgement or dismissive acts
– You would like each member to better understand your feelings, thoughts, and opinions
– Family members want to respectfully resolve conflict and improve relationships
Family counseling can also offer compassionate support when coping with changes to the family unit due to divorce, blending families, children leaving home, or death.
