Family Therapy

 

Our families can be massively influential to our identities and how we go about making sense of our world. Family can serve as a source of support, guidance, and joy. Unfortunately, our family lives can also be a source of stress, conflict, and emotional hurts.

 

Family therapy is a way to achieve healthier, more flexible family relationships. Family therapists have training and experience in treating a variety of issues that undermine the health of the family unit. They are also skilled at highlighting and maximizing strengths within the family.

 

Typical reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Divorce

  • Parenting conflict

  • Poor communication

  • Issues with boundaries

  • Grief or unexpected loss

  • Adjustments to life changes

  • Substance abuse within the family

  • Eating disorders within the family

 

There are many positive outcomes from family therapy. Common family therapy outcomes include:

  • Improving communication skills.

  • Developing and maintaining healthier boundaries.

  • Developing flexible problem-solving strategies.

  • Foster empathy and emotional expression between family members.

  • Resolving long-term or unexpressed family conflicts.
