Family counseling is designed to identify family dynamics, interactions, and patterns that prevent the collective growth and harmony of the family system. Poor communication, behavior problems and unresolvable conflicts are commons signs of a distressed family system.
When a family is distressed, it is quite common for the members to look to one individual as the source of the problems; however, our family therapists focus on the complex relational system between the members and help to create a way of relating with each other that supports everyone’s overall health and well-being.
The therapeutic relationship in family counseling is based on the therapist engagement of your entire family system. Your therapist evaluates the processes, the internal workings and complex relationships within the family in order to clarify the significant issues and the family’s unhealthy ways of relating to each other.
We will meet with your family, assess your family dynamics and counsel interventions for increasing communication, resolving conflicts, boundary setting, family structuring and parenting issues as well as managing crisis and grief together. Seeing the system as a whole provides a space for family members to develop more effective communication, establish or re-establish common family goals, strengthen bonds, and the opportunity to learn and practice effective conflict resolution.
