Family. They are the people who mean more to you than any others in the world. You may be related by birth, marriage or adoption, but whatever the connection, you’re in it for the long haul.
Why then is there family and relational stress? Because families are made up of individuals. And the truth of the matter is that individuals don’t always see eye to eye on everything. Actually, that’s okay. People, even people in the same family, don’t necessarily need to have identical thoughts, feelings or preferences to love one another. In fact, one of the first places we learn about tolerance is with our families.
Problems arise, however, when our differences become obstacles that get in the way of leading happy and productive lives. That’s when family therapy in Apollo Beach, FL can help. Our clinicians work with you to improve the systems of interactions between your family members.
We offer counseling in several different areas that come under the heading of Family Therapy:
No matter what brings you to Revolutionary Change for counseling, our clinicians first need to get to know you and your family. We start by asking a lot of questions such as:
After the first couple of sessions, your family and therapist will be ready to get down to work. Your sessions will be a time to problem solve. You and your family members can talk about your current situation, and the therapist will use her expertise to offer ideas that might help resolve the problem.
Between sessions, you and your family may need to do some homework. This means that you’ll have to act upon the ideas discussed during your counseling. Granted, some of your homework might be challenging, but the steps you’ll take are designed to bring you closer to your goal. At follow-up sessions, you can freely talk about your progress and your frustrations.
Needless to say, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Your unique circumstances and family dynamics will determine how many sessions are necessary. Once your therapist has met with you and become familiar with your situation, she may be able to give you a rough estimate, but that could change as you and your family progress through counseling. Some families need only a few months of therapy while others may require much longer. In either case the objective is always the same—helping you build the life you want for yourself and your family.
We listen to what concerns you to offer guidance and support for circumstances that are challenging to change. We help you to explore, transform and heal. We care about your needs and we want to walk alongside you on your journey of change, today.
