THERAPY FOR FAMILIES
Family dynamics are not fixed,
they are constantly in flux, due to the goals, challenges, personal identities, and perspectives of each of their members. Loss, divorce, addiction, infidelity, success, financial or medical struggles, societal pressures, gender norms, and changing personal dynamics can shake a family structure and cause members to feel like they’re reeling. Communication can be especially difficult within the family dynamic, making a repair and rebuilding within the unit especially difficult.
Whether in crisis or just adjusting to a new tone or addition, family counseling can allow its members a safe place to begin the work of mutual understanding and healing. Such work is best assisted by the neutrality of a therapist, who can help shift the family dynamics to a healthier and more vibrant landscape.
