No family is without imperfections. All families experience conflict from time to time. Some issues are worked through easily, but others take an objective third party to help you figure out what’s going on and how you can move forward. If your family has experienced a loss or separation/divorce, is recovering from a traumatic event, is dealing with out of control behaviors, or just can’t get along, family therapy can help you figure out what’s next. The therapists at Creative Family Counseling have specialized training in working with family systems. Family Therapy focuses on understanding systemic problems and finding ways to break unhealthy patterns within that system while highlighting healthier ways of interacting.
Family therapy comes in lots of shapes and sizes. Because the definition of “family” is subjective, clients can determine who participates in their family therapy and goals can be set for what the family would like to accomplish together.
Perhaps your family is in need of conflict resolution or some healthier communication skills. Maybe your family is adjusting to recent changes. In the midst of separation or following a divorce, many parents of shared children benefit from family therapy in the context of co-parenting support. Oftentimes siblings benefit from attention to strengthening their relationship with one another. And sometimes, parents just need support in thinking outside of the box. The definition of “family” is ever-changing and your family therapy can be defined by what your family needs. Whether your family is small or large, young or old, your family (however you define it) is welcome to participate in change together at Creative Family Counseling.
