Family Therapy

Our family is a system combined of parents, siblings, extended family members, spiritual community, work community. They all affect us differently and shape how we perceive the world and what our place is in it. Sometimes this can be a positive family system and sometimes, it can be a negative family system. We learn our vocabulary, our customs and rituals, our habits, and how to view and observe the world around us.

Individuals seeking Family Therapy can benefit from it by learning different behaviors and responses to stress management, respond differently to difficult conversations or behaviors, and get intervention for those family members who have addictions or trauma.

Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • The unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Problems between siblings
  • Verbal and/or emotional abuse
  • Divorce

Family therapy aids in healing wounds, is beneficial to address family issues, and process difficult situations. If any of the above scenarios resonate with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be helpful on many different levels.

Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

  • Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
  • Foster a sense of cohesion and communication among family members
  • Promotes problem-solving through an understanding of family patterns and dynamics
  • Builds empathy and understanding.
  • Reduces family conflict

Family there can be helpful particularly when a member of the family struggles with substance abuse, eating disorders, addictions and other behavioral issues. When families can come together and work together as a team, each family member is better off and it creates a healthier homeostasis.
