Counseling for Families

Is your family struggling to cope with a major change, divorce, trauma, or loss?
Do you wish that your family had better communication and boundary setting skills?
Are you ready for your house to feel like a home again?

Families don’t always live in harmony. Big changes such as divorce, loss, or lifestyle adjustments can create conflict and tension that wasn’t always there. If this is the case for you, you may be feeling hostility in the home, or a disconnect in family communication. 

Factors such as mental illness, substance abuse, or unemployment can impact the family as a whole. Fortunately, counseling can help you and your family better understand one another as you face these stressors. Learning about coping skills, healthy boundary setting, and better ways to communicate can all help you to grow stronger as a unit.

Counseling Can Help Your Family Cope with Challenges

There are a lot of situations that bring families into therapy:

  • A family member’s mental illness or substance abuse issue
  • A family member or loved one’s death
  • Divorce or separation
  • Changes in children’s behavior
  • Parent-child conflicts
  • Financial difficulties or unemployment
  • A sudden breakdown in healthy communication

Problems like these are tricky to navigate — and you shouldn’t have to face them alone. That is why we want to work with you to discover the tools needed to establish – or reestablish – harmony within the household.
