Families are made of people who should support and love one another. However, there are times when different opinions and unfortunate circumstances cause family members to hurt one another or fall out of touch. Family therapy with the McLean Counseling Center can help you and your family reconnect and understand each other. All it takes is some hard work and guidances for families to happy again. Family therapy can reconcile and even improve your family’s relationship over time. There is also family therapy for grieving families who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
Family Therapy Counseling
This is counseling for families who are having trouble properly communicating with each other. This type of counseling mainly deals with family members and couples who are experiencing issues communicating and understanding each other. It can also help family members who have had a falling out or a misunderstanding that has severely damaged the relationship. These sessions aim to show each member how important their family actually is and why their relationship is worth fighting for. The key to setting a solid foundation for a new relationship in these circumstances often involves getting several family members involved in the solution.
During family therapy counseling, all grievances and personal opinions are laid out on the table. These issues are discussed openly and without judgment or criticism. The main intention of family therapy counseling is to make sure that each member has the chance to voice their opinion and clear the air about miscommunications. Once everyone has had a chance to speak, the healing process can truly begin.
Reunifying Family Counseling
When families become separated or estranged for whatever reason and are now looking to reconcile their relationship should seek our reunifying family counseling. This type of family therapy allows family members to be heard and feel respected again. It is especially helpful to parents who have children whom they haven’t seen or spoken to for more than a few years.
