Is This You?
Right now, you may be wondering how on earth to help your family.
Maybe your teen or tween has shut down and withdrawn, not letting you in anymore and you’re wondering how to help them.
Perhaps you’re feeling concerned about the fact that your kids just never seem to be able to get along and you only seem to make it worse when you intervene.
Or you might be curious how you, your partner, and your kids can best navigate a rocky transitional time, like the teenage years, a big move, or a shift in your relationship (divorce, separation, re-marrying and blending together families).
Maybe your child has decided to transition and you don’t know how to handle it well as a family.
You’d like to be able to support your kids in any way you possibly can but it seems like every time you open your mouth it only makes it worse.
You’ve talked to your friends, you’ve read the books, and none of it seems to be helping.
You need some professional support.
What You’re Hoping For:
That’s where a good family counselor can come in.
A family counselor can help you guys feel safe, comfortable, and supported enough to really talk about what’s going for you all without falling into those patterns you all seem to get stuck in at home.
A good family counselor can help identify patterns and dynamics playing out that may be getting in the way of you all feeling close and connected.
And most importantly, a good family counselor can help you build a bridge back to one another as a family.
Because, let’s face it, at the end of the day you probably just want to feel connected to each other again, don’t you?
What We Can Do Together:
Family counseling takes time, effort, and an investment from each member of your family to show up and be vulnerable with one another.
While family counseling doesn’t come with guaranteed results, some of the benefits of it may include:
- Improved communication with one another;
- Lessened defensiveness;
- More empathy and compassion and kindness towards one another;
- A deeper sense of understanding how your individual behavior (or lack of it) is impacting one another;
- Tools and resources to practice new, more healthy and functional behaviors and habits;
- A neutral third party perspective on what’s really going on and how you guys can feel close again.
Truly, beginning family counseling can have a profound and transformative impact on your life together.
