Each person in a family system can both influence and be influenced by other family members. For example, one person’s individual problem (i.e., substance abuse, depression, eating disorder, bipolar disorder, behavioral problems, medical problem, schizophrenia, etc.) can affect their interactions and relationships with their family members and may have adverse effects on their family members’ lives. Families also can struggle in their efforts to resolve conflicts between parents and children, or with siblings or spouses. Often, families will participate in family therapy to help them understand their family conflicts and work together better to overcome them with the help of a trained therapist.
In family therapy, I can help your family:
- Strengthen bonds and relationships
- Resolve conflicts
- Learn each member’s strengths and weaknesses
- Develop and maintain healthy boundaries
- Learn effective ways to communicate with each other
- Prepare for an important life change, such as separation, divorce, remarriage, or birth of a new family member
- Cope with the loss of a family member or a traumatic experience
- Build trust, empathy, respect, and understanding among family members
- Change dysfunctional family patterns
If you and your family are struggling now to overcome conflicts, please contact me today to help your family build a strong, healthy unit!
