Family Therapy

At times the dynamics in a family can become so entrenched with conflicts that the family members feel stuck as if in an emotional morass. Frustration and intense anger can establish themselves as the norm of the family interactions. As in couples therapy, the psychotherapist is there to help identify the root conflicts. By doing so and helping the individuals to see and understand those conflicts, the individuals of the family can start to recognize when they are manifesting at home. The therapist helps to establish healthier, more successful methods for dealing with those conflicts in the field, so to speak.

We all know that family dynamics can be filled with landmines, and you never know when you’re going to step on one without realizing it! The therapist’s job is to help the family members to detect those landmines and avoid them, or when avoidance is impossible to minimize the negative impact. Like couples therapy, it can be hard work, but with commitment and good faith from each member, the home environment can radically change for the better.
