Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.
5 Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
- Parent-child conflict
- Problems between siblings
- Domestic violence
- The unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
Family counseling may be necessary to address certain family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonate with you or someone you know, consider family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial in many different ways.
