Our family affects who we are and who we become. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. It is so normal for families to struggle from time to time as the family adjusts to the world happening around them. I offer support during life’s challenging moments to re-establish balance, tranquility, and connection in the family.
Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
- Parent-child conflict
- Problems between siblings
- Addition of foster or adopted child
- Domestic violence
- The unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
Family therapy is supportive in addressing family issues and healing a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonate with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.
Some positive family therapy outcomes are:
- Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
- Fostered 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
Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
