Marriage/Family Therapy

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY PROGRAMS 

Marriage and Family Therapy addresses the behaviors of all family members and the way these behaviors affect not only individual family members, but also relationships between family members and the family unit. We have clinicians trained in providing counseling to couples and families dealing with a variety of challenges and life struggles. The therapist will help you learn to identify individual family roles and behaviors that contribute to conflicts, identify specific challenges, and explore ways to actively resolve issues. Individual therapy for one or more of the family members may be recommended if underlying mental health issues are found to be present.

FAMILY AND MARITAL THERAPY TECHNIQUES CULTIVATE HEALTHY BEHAVIORS

A direct result of marriage and family counseling is improved mental and physical health. Sometimes people initiate a therapy because their partner or family member is struggling with destructive, toxic behavior. A good counselor starts a dialogue and provides a nonjudgmental, safe space to the partner that encourages them to move towards a healthier behavior.

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY TECHNIQUES

Our clinicians employ an assortment of marriage and family therapy concepts and methods to address a range of issues within families. They prefer considering the entire family rather than an individual.

Behavioral marital therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is a common form of talk therapy. It asks participants to identify, reframe, or challenge negative thoughts differently. CBT is generally a short-term treatment and is effective for depression, mood swings, and phobias.

Narrative therapy

Sometimes, people are too close to a problem to figure out a solution. People grappling with mental health issues or trauma might come up with narratives that paint them in a negative light. Our professionals help them rewrite their personal narratives as part of their family or marital therapy treatment plan and develop healthier ways to steer them.

Family systems therapy

This form of therapy emphasizes that family is an emotional unit. It suggests that the behavior of individual family members is inseparable from the family – and if one member changes their behavior, it will impact the entire family over time. Our professionals use family therapy techniques in form of individual and group sessions so that everybody gets to voice their struggles and work through their issues.
