Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for the worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and traditions, and how we observe and navigate the world around us.
Family therapy can help you develop healthier and closer family relationships.
Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
- Parent-child conflict
- Sibling conflict and rivalry
- Emotional or physical abuse
- Health concerns of family members
- Family of origin work
- Effective co-parenting following divorce
- Integrating blended families
Family therapy is effective in transforming family dynamics and in healing family wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonate with your family, consider seeking therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on so many different levels.
Some positive family therapy outcomes are:
- Effective strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
- An improved sense of cohesion and communication among family members
- Problem-solving through an understanding of family patterns and dynamics
- Increased empathy and understanding.
- Reduced disfunctional family conflict
Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with emotional and behavioral issues such as depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, and cognitive disorders. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
