Family therapy helps families who are experiencing relationship conflict and perhaps are experiencing a volatile home environment or families who have experienced a crisis or tragedy that is difficult to cope with. Family therapy provides support and perspective by reflecting and encouraging each participant to gain a better awareness about themselves as well as the feelings and needs of others within the family system. Family counseling will help each participant develop necessary insight and skills to approach relationship difficulties and challenges in a way that is helpful and effective. The ultimate goal of family counseling is to improve family functioning through mutual trust, communication and conflict resolution skills.
Counselors at Family Therapy Associates may ask all or several family members to participate in the therapy process and participants play an active role and have input on treatment goals and who attends appointments during scheduled sessions.
