Building a Healthy Family System...
All of us desire a fulfilling, healthy, and loving family life, but at times that goal can be difficult to achieve. Whether you are in a marriage that is dealing with infidelity or perhaps co-dependent issues, it is important that you take a step back and talk to someone that can help you work through these critical challenges.
You can reverse these problems. We offer Family Counseling and Parent Counseling which is designed to help you solve these problems. We can help you deal with an angry teenager, with inconsistent discipline, with blended family issues and other problems which families and parents encounter.
Family therapy is for families who are experiencing ongoing problems in their relationships. These problems can occur between parents and children or between siblings. Often siblings can also experience problems after a divorce.
The basic idea about family therapy is that the family is a system. This means that what is happening to one person in the family system will have an effect on others in the family system.
Family therapy provides an opportunity and a place for family members to come together and work through issues that might be affecting the entire family. Initial meetings will focus on identifying the problem and the steps needed to resolve the issue. Often families may just need some help with conflict mediation, learning how to communicate more clearly, and developing more effective ways of coping with stress.
Blended Families have a particularly difficult time. Typically the new couples have different parenting styles and expectations. This is true of newlyweds, as well. However, newlyweds have a period of years to work out a joint and consistent parenting style. Parents of blended families must deal with this same issue quickly. They don't have the luxury of time.
In addition, they must deal with children who are accustomed to different parenting styles and who may balk at the new one. Another layer of difficulty lies in the fact that everyone must now incorporate new people in their lives. And some of these children may have resentments stemming from the divorce. No wonder blended families need extra guidance to move in a positive direction.
Family therapy can prove to be very helpful to all members of the families, original, blended, or step. Parents can be seen individually, and together, with their new partners, and also with their children in order to define new family rules and roles. Child and adolescent therapy sessions can help to identify any areas of potential difficulty and aid the children in making sense of and adjusting to the dramatic changes that have taken place in their lives.
We also offer Parent Counseling or Parent Coaching. Parenting is challenging and sometimes stressful. We can help you and your child by helping the entire family. We will focus on the specific types of strategies that will work best for you and your family, depending on the family needs. If the parents are not in agreement about how to raise the children, discipline becomes much more difficult to achieve. We can help you create that agreement and develop better parenting skills.
We are dedicated to help you through any challenge that you are facing and guide you to live the life you truly desire.
