Family counseling is a way to improve relationships within the family by reducing stress and conflict and improving interactions between family members. The primary difference between this and individual counseling is the emphasis in family counseling is the health and well-being of the family rather than the individual, which naturally increases the health and well-being of the individual members. “Family” can be defined as any people who play a long-term, supportive role in the lives of a cohesive group. This includes what we think of as a traditional family and extends to people who reside in the same household or heavily rely on one another for financial or emotional support. Family counseling is the ideal way to address challenges that impact the entire group, such as:

  • adjusting to and coping with an addiction
  • divorce
  • medical issue
  • mental health diagnosis
  • caring for an aged parent
  • improving communication and reducing conflict
  • relocation
  • new member in the household – birth, step-parent, grandparent
  • grief at the loss of a family member – particularly a sudden, traumatic loss

Benefits can include:

  • Develop and maintain healthy boundaries
  • Decrease conflict
  • More effective communication
  • New problem-solving strategies
  • Increased empathy and understanding
  • Greater support within the system
