What is Family Therapy?
Family therapy is private counseling that aims to fix the relationships of a group of people. Many people associate family therapists with marriage counselors, but family therapists often deal with issues between parents and children as well as unmarried couples. The long and short of it is that anyone providing family relationship counseling services is looking to improve communication skills and heal inter-family trauma, for whatever and whomever you call family.
Does My Family Need to See a Marriage and Family Therapist?
Ultimately, the only person that can answer that question is you. Of course, there are no families or relationships as perfect as the ones we see on television, and to create the ideal of some perfect family only hurts the individuals who live in the real world. Human relationships are messy and complicated, and there are many ways for them to go wrong.
But with that in mind, your family or your relationship should be a source of love and comfort for you, not a source of stress. If you or your loved ones walk away from most interactions feeling drained, depressed, upset, or even angry, perhaps it’s time to see if the services of a qualified marriage and family therapist are right for you.
