In life, our foundations are deeply rooted within family. Whether it’s made of blood relatives or adoptive parents, our families influence every aspect of our lives. From physical to emotional development, our family affects who we are and who we become as we grow. There’s so much we learn from our family like rituals, traditions- even vocabulary. We also learn how to love and interact with others from these important first relationships.
Unfortunately, sometimes these relationships face tough times. Nearly all families deal with struggles and dysfunction at some point. Family therapy helps families identify goals and overcome challenges. We can help families identify patterns that aren’t working and develop new ones that work better in a comfortable and supportive environment. Family therapy allows each member to understand their part in the healing process as well as the views of other members. Many who participate in family therapy leave feeling like their relationships will be healthier moving forward. It’s specifically successful in treating the following issues:
- Sibling Conflicts
- Parenting Disputes
- Chronic Illness of a Family Member
- Family Trauma
- Substance Abuse/Eating Disorders of a Family Member
Above all, family therapy requires the special skill set of a licensed and experienced professional. Let one of our professional help you and your family get on the road to renewed and reconnected relationships.
