Family Therapy

“Why family therapy? Because it deals with family pain.”

- Virginia Satir

Families encounter stressful adjustments and difficulties, as most families go through life challenges and changes together. Family conflict and problems are often complicated and emotionally charged. Problems often are either not discussed or can become too escalated to problem-solve. If recent life transitions, parenting challenges, mental health concerns, or behavior problems are straining relationships within your family, working with a mental health professional could be very beneficial.

Resolution of Conflict

Family therapy doesn’t stop at “fixing the problem.” Family therapy is meant for multiple family members to work together to recognize negative interactions and create healthier, family-oriented relationships for the benefit of all family members. The first two to three sessions are getting to know your family and constructing the objectives for family therapy. From there, I will meet family members, parents, or the family unit as needed to reach the goals of the family. I try to include as many family members as I can in the therapy process so everyone's voice is heard and the health of the entire family is prioritized.

Coping Skills for Challenges

Therapy serves as a rich resource of innovative strategies and evidence-based techniques tailored to address the specific needs and dynamics of each family. Whether it's learning effective communication techniques, implementing boundary-setting strategies, or practicing conflict resolution skills, therapy provides a supportive environment for families to experiment with new tools and ideas in a guided and structured manner.

Strengthened Relationships

Ultimately, the goal of therapy is not just to provide families with a temporary fix, but to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to thrive in the long term. By embracing new ideas and tools from therapy, families can embark on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and transformation, paving the way for healthier, happier, and more fulfilling relationships.

Healing and Growth

In therapy, families enter into a unique space where collaboration and empowerment form the foundation of the therapeutic process. Rather than simply receiving advice or directives from the therapist, family members are encouraged to actively engage in problem-solving and skill-building activities, becoming co-creators of their own healing journey. As family members engage in this process of active participation, they often experience a newfound sense of agency and empowerment. They discover their capacity to effect change within themselves and their relationships, leading to increased confidence, resilience, and self-esteem.
