Family counseling is a type of psychological counseling (psycho-therapy) that is designed to assist you and your family members with improving communication and resolving conflicts. It may be provided by different kinds of properly credentialed, educated, trained, and experienced clinicians such as Licensed Professional Counselors. Family counseling is often short-term and may include all or some of your family members that are willing to participate. The specific goals will depend on your family’s situation. Family counseling sessions can educate family members with abilities to strengthen family relationships and help you through a tough time with ongoing skills to manage future events.

Family is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.

Family is like an ecosystem. Each part interacts with the other and each part plays a unique role. There are rules, whether explicit or implicit, that are to be followed. Not all these rules may be healthy. We grow up in a family, and most times, join another in our adult lives. What we were trained to do in our original family, and what others were trained to do in theirs, comes out in our present relationships. I work with families where they are. I consider all the above when teaming up with family. So I address the individuals, the group, the past and the present with an aim toward a healthier future.

Clients who attend family therapy most often see a change in the way their family is organized, structured, and how family members relate to each other. Most often this creates less chaos, stress, and conflict in the family, making for a much more peaceful and happier household. Parents often find family therapy prevents marital issues from negatively affecting their children.
