Families are important. Family relationships almost always play an important role in an individual's ability to develop a strong self-esteem and engage in healthy relationships. So, family counseling is often a powerful tool for mending or restoring relationships to good health. Over time, most of us learn to interact a certain way with certain family members and continue to treat them in a certain way without taking into account life changes or more effective options. Family therapy can be a wonderful way to increase awareness of ineffective interactional styles and identify more respectful and compassionate approaches.

Family counseling brings together members of a family to work through situational or relationship issues. Some common topics include changes in family relationships, conflict, health issues, addiction, trauma, divorce/separation, communication, and life changes/transitions. A therapist will help the family recognize their patterns, build on strengths and develop alternatives, providing all family members a voice in the process.

A main goal of family therapy is to develop healthy boundaries, communication and empathy within the family. Reducing conflict within the family and developing problem-solving skills is also common. I believe that an important aspect of family therapy is to treat the family as a whole unit. It is important for the family to explore the dynamics and functioning of their family of origin. Family therapy looks at the problem as a whole, and not at any individual’s role within the problem. It is important that each individual within the family unit gets their turn and that people aren’t speaking over each other or placing blame on each other.

Families are a system with their own culture, beliefs, and ways of being. Every family member contributes to this culture. Not much progress can be accomplished without recognizing how the thoughts, behaviors, and emotions of each individual influences the entire structure. Family therapy is a way of addressing the whole unit rather than one individual. Members attending sessions vary. so, I use a variety of techniques including but not limited to art, writing, role-playing, and games. Fair warning, family therapy includes listening to your other family members, compromising, and active effort in trying new techniques or activities at home.

Family therapy is crucial to develop positive systemic change in family systems. By targeting the familial relationships, I believe that change will occur positively to adjust dysfunction and possible generational trauma symptoms. By engaging in family therapy, a family is choosing to make positive changes and grow together. I am a large advocate of families receiving therapy, in addition to individual counseling. In family therapy, it is important for the therapist to take an active role in the session to allow for equality and giving a voice to those who may be less vocal. The therapist allows a safe space for everyone to feel comfortable and known among each other.

It is important to hear everyone's side in a family session. Ensuring each individual feels comfortable enough to speak up is important. Allowing the family to express themselves in a safe environment with the help of a therapist could help the family at home. I have experience working with a number of different family systems. I incorporate both verbal and non-verbal therapy techniques into these sessions to see improvement in family dynamics.

The dynamics of a family are unique and complicated. It is important that in all sessions each member is heard. Family systems therapy regardless of the problem whether "individual" or a "family issue," involving the family in solutions often benefits clients. As a family and couples counselor my ability to influence sessions is in a way that catalyses the strength, wisdom and support of a wider system is crucial for positive outcomes. With over ten years of experience as a drug and alcohol counselor understanding the impact that substance abuse has on every individual in the family system is beneficial in helping family gain awareness and knowledge.

Family is where we live, love and hurt. Most of us live with the misconception that because most people do the family thing – we should know how to do it. We don’t. Family is one of the hardest things that we can do. It seems like it is supposed to be easy. When you get in the middle of it, it just isn’t. Asking for help can often get families back to where they either use to be or get them to the place that they all crave to be. Family will never be easy but it can be rewarding. Family life is very hard. It will always be hard. There is help. We as Marriage and Family Therapists are trained to understand the dynamics of families. We are taught and have honed the skill of how to impa....
