“Family dysfunction travels like wild fire from generation to generation until one brave soul turns around to face the flames. That person brings peace to the generations who came before them and spares the generations to come.”-Terry Real
People seek family therapy for many reasons. Sometimes it is recommended by a friend or another professional. Some may choose to engage in family therapy to work on improving relationships with one another, to process shared traumatic experiences or to deal with major life changes such as a divorce, addition to family or shared loss.
Family therapy can provide a safe space to gain insight about maladaptive patterns and to learn healthy ways to communicate with each other. It can help address unresolved conflict, improve communication and gain insight about behavioral patterns.
I often work with people who make a conscious decision to identify and release legacy or cultural burdens which may be impacting relationship dynamics.
