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?

My training was as a Marriage and Family Therapist, which emphasizes the greater connections we have as part of who we are. That creates a fuller picture of who a client is. This includes the important societal and cultural factors that face people.

In family therapy, I focus on cultivating healthy relationships between all family members. Each family functions in their own unique way and depending on your family's goals, we can find a way that works for you.

— Charice Corbin, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Northport, AL

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I think systemically about how issues effect the family. For instance, if a teen and their parent(s) are experiencing conflict, what is everyone's role in that conflict and the family system? How can we unpack and change patterns of communication that may be harmful or passed down generationally? I enjoy helping clients think creatively about conflicts where they might feel stuck.

— Laura Barclay, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Louisville, KY

— Robert Hinojosa, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Little Rock, AR

I work with families that have trouble adjusting to the different stages of life. There are key stages in life that families experience. They are the forming of the family, families with pre-school, school-age or teenage children, launching children and families with middle-aged and retired parents. All of these stages in the family cycle can be difficult and I can be the therapist that can work with you to address the concerns and find clear solutions to adjusting to each of cycle

— Rosemary Powell, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Queens, NY

This modality recognizes the family as a system of interconnected individuals where each member has a role to play and rules to respect. Family can be a “rough neighborhood” to live in…especially if they don’t know how to get along with each other. My office offers a platform where each member has a voice to contribute to the family's identity so everyone can feel safe. This therapy focuses on intergenerational relationships and personal core value systems to promote healthy functioning.

— Dr. Carolyn Becker, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Fort Worth, TX
 

While I believe that children and adolescents have a right to privacy in their individual work, I also do appreciate that not only do they spend most of their time in and with their family, but that family is a source of support and strength. As such, family therapy is an integral component of my individual work, and parents frequently are engaged as coaches to help their children (and themselves) practice good stress management and self-care skills.

— Cathleen Rea, Clinical Psychologist in Charlottesville, VA

I had to have a lot of family therapy when I just got adopted and JUST being able to talk to someone about how being adopted makes me feel helped

— Kaylissa Butrum, Psychiatrist in danville, IN

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, I have extensive training systems theory and working with complex relationships. This assists me in joining family systems, learning their ways, and helping identify new avenues for growth and change. Each family system is unique, so I spend ample time learning where a family is and what factors are impacting the family system. My understanding of systems theory enables me to effectively enact change within the system.

Family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family, such as major life transitions or mental health conditions. It may be used as the primary mode of treatment or as a complementary approach.

— Eric Henley, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Mesa, AZ

Family therapy is helpful when there are behavior problems with a child or adolescent, problems with communication, coping with a change or loss within the family (divorce, death, marriage, etc) or there's conflict within the family. I help families discover the reason the problems are happening in the first place so that we can work together to resolve them for good.
