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?

Families can be the most joyous experience in anyone’s life but also the most challenging and sometimes heart breaking. These are the people you are the closest with in your life and share a deep bond with. I look at everyone’s perspective in the challenges that they face and work together to find the best possible outcome. Everyone’s voice should and will be heard when we work together.

We can work on effective conflict resolution so that partners and families are able to reconnect as partners/groups.

— Tim Lineaweaver, Addictions Counselor
 

There are various fictions floating around about what it takes to be a perfect family. However, the emphasis on perfect is destructive, because it’s an impossible goal. The point is more to have a loving, well-functioning family where kids are cherished and supported to become thriving, fulfilled adults who themselves know how to have good (not perfect) relationships. This always requires constant adaptation and tinkering. I love working with motivated families!

— Maria Orr, Marriage & Family Therapist in Corvallis, OR

Families. You can live with them, and you can’t live without them, am I right? Whether you are born into a family, or you choose your own, you may be a part of more than one family system. Regardless of the configuration, many family groups experience challenges and issues that often lead to conflict. Much like counseling for individuals, the work in family therapy is focused on improving relationship dynamics and breaking old habits.

— Samantha Serbin, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Austin, TX
 

Family therapy has been a critical part of my private practice experience for the last 11 years. Family therapy is often overlooked when treating adolescents and young adults. I help families understand that they function as a system, and support each person in understanding their role that contributes to the family dynamic. I utilize talk therapy as well as in-session structured activities to encourage connection, healthy confrontation, and healing within the family.

— Stephanie Marks, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in San Jose, CA
