Family Therapy

Family therapy is intended to help with problems that specifically affect families’ mental health and functioning. It can assist each family member in creating closer bonds with one another, improving communication, and handling disagreements among family members. Family therapy can encourage change in intimate relationships by enhancing the way family members communicate with and relate to one another. The main objectives of family therapy are improving the home environment, resolving family conflicts, and addressing specific family challenges that a family may have.

Crises happening in families such as sickness, change in economic status, death, separation, rebellious teens with fits of anger, drug addiction etc can disturb a family’s balance. Families affected by such tribulations could benefit a lot from counseling or therapy.

The family therapy depends on the type of situation the family is in and the kind of outcome the family is expecting out of therapy. The following are the most common problems that can arise between family members and in a family unit.

  • Blended family conflicts
  • Conflicts & misunderstanding
  • Family member struggling with the feeling of being outcast
  • Family members who come from mixed racial, cultural, or religious backgrounds
  • Grief and loss of a loved one
  • Lack of trust & communication
  • Parenting issues

Family therapy can help family members in acknowledging and assisting one another as they deal with the forementioned challenges. It is also used to help family members deal with major life changes such as divorce, the birth of a new child, or the death of a family member. In these situations, family therapy can support the family in understanding the changes and coming up with solutions together. In general, family therapy can help families enhance their connections, improve communication, and develop tolerance during hardship.
