Believe it or not, this pandemic may actually be an ideal time to pursue Family Therapy. Because therapy is currently teletherapy, scheduling is more flexible. I can also work with family members who live around the state, so location is no longer an issue. So this is a great time to pursue family therapy!
Who is Family Teletherapy for?
With teletherapy, I tend to work with teen and adult family members. Children struggle with online therapy and for those families, I recommend individual or couples therapy with a focus on parent coaching. Family therapy can be helpful for parents and their grown children, adult siblings, or therapy with extended family.
Some potential areas of focus in Family Therapy:
- Improve communication
- Become closer through enhanced empathy and understanding
- Build and maintain beneficial boundaries
- Create healthy adult relationships between parents and their grown children
- Resolve conflict
- Learn valuable skills to help the family get through stressful situations
What does Family Therapy look like?
Family therapy is quite flexible and fluid. Sometimes I start by meeting with everyone all together on a Zoom call. Other times I meet with family members individually until I am confident all parties are ready to come together and really hear one another. In family therapy, I work to slow down the process and teach communication skills so that people are expressing emotions and thoughts in a more productive way.
