Family can be your greatest source of love and support. However, families are not always happy, comfortable, or supportive. It’s no surprise that arguments and family drama is a common sources of stress for individuals. We all deal with life’s ups and downs the best we can at times, but when tensions linger, it only makes things worse. Family counseling or coaching can help you get back on track as a whole family unit so your kids can thrive as well.

Counseling for families is a great way to solve your family issues. Those who participate experience greater family bonding, increased mental and physical health and improved communication. Family counselling allows you to bond with your family members, helps you resolve inner conflicts, and offers valuable tools that can help you heal from the past.

Our Approach to Family Therapy

Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is the modality we use when working with families. EFFT focuses on making each member of a family unit feel emotionally secure to be able to discuss issues and concerns. EFFT can help strengthen family relationships and heal wounds from abuse, neglect, divorce or miscommunications.

The goal of Emotionally Focused Family Therapy is to create feelings of safety, respect and understanding between family members. Families who attend therapy together learn the skills necessary to form a secure, validating environment where parents and children can comfortably communicate with one another in order to solve the problems that come up regularly in the family relationship.

Oftentimes families seeking therapy are suffering from high conflict or hostile engagements between family members. Parents and children may both feel like they don’t receive the respect necessary to maintain a healthy relationship, or perhaps a relationship between two or more members simply does not exist. In therapy, we create an environment of safety and acceptance where each member can be heard, understood, and validated. As individual concerns are brought up the therapist will suggest methods that will allow the family to better understand one another and uncover any underlying emotions that feed negative patterns. Over time families will learn to communicate more openly with each member expressing their needs in a healthy way.

As families progress through Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, relationships between members will improve or begin to from. The family will create a stronger bond while processing issues together and the deep wounds that have been festering within the family can finally begin to heal. The therapist will continue to moderate until together the family determines that they are comfortable and confident with their new skills and decide to discontinue sessions with their therapist.

Family therapy is for everyone, schedule your appointment to get started.
