Family Therapy

Family Therapy

The family dynamic can be both a beautiful but challenging space to navigate. Difficulties within families not only impact one person, but the family as a whole. Family therapy typically includes all or most members during sessions. The goal is to assist you in communicating more effectively, resolving current conflicts, and healing past resentment or hurt. Family therapy will support all members to gain better insight into each individual’s emotions and thoughts, and come to resolutions or compromises that benefit all.

Due to the fact that we spend a large portion of our lives surrounded by family, it is so important that these relationships nurture and support us.

Below are some common signs and symptoms that suggest family therapy may be beneficial:

  • Frequent arguments that are leading to resentment and unresolved anger
  • Communication going awry
  • Withdrawal from interactions with family members
  • Difficulties between siblings
  • Substance abuse
  • Difficulty managing extreme emotional reactions between members
  • And more

Family therapy can provide the following benefits:

  • Improved communication and understanding
  • Leads to acceptance and forgiveness
  • Space for all family members to feel heard and cared for
  • Reduced stress and conflict
  • New and improved ways of solving problems
  • Trust and understanding between parents and children
  • Working together rather than against one another
  • Effective parenting techniques
  • And more!
