Family Therapy

Family dynamics are constantly shifting and can be complex. Families may seek out therapy to learn how to communicate better and resolve general conflicts, or to address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family. Family therapy can help improve troubled relationships between partners, children or other family members. It will also help families to recognize unhealthy patterns and teach skills to replace those with positive, healthy communication. A family therapist will help members of your family gain the skills to get through stressful times, communicate more openly, and grow closer. Family therapy is often short-term and it can include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Think your family might benefit from family therapy?

— Samantha Lavy, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Stamford, CT

As an LMFT-A, I am trained to view the family as a cohesive unit. Some of our issues and concerns derive from our closest family relationships; at times they may cause us more stress than security. I see parent-child relationships, sibling relationships, and even multi-generational family relationships, and help process communication patterns, power hierarchies, family rules/roles, and past trauma and conflict. My goal is to aid a family towards a state of peace.

— Bet Shaddinger, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Family therapy is a concept that can be loosely defined. We are all a part of a family. Therefore, family tends to affect our lives in some form or fashion. Family also doesn’t have to be blood-related; it can be the ones you choose along the way. Throughout the course of therapy, it might be helpful to bring in some family members as we see fit and/or beneficial for you. When doing this, it will always be with your consent first. This provides a better picture to me as your therapist.

Families are complicated and many families don't handle conflict well. Addiction, financial stress, illness are some of the issues that can be helped through family counseling. Parents and children learn new ways to communicate and can express themselves in a safe place. Many families can significantly improve their interactions and regain their closeness.
