Often families will seek counseling together when the following occurs:
Person or persons in the family battling depression, anxiety, trauma or substance abuse
Death in the family
Change in family roles
Families go through many transitions; this inevitably affects the entire family unit. Some of the goals in family therapy are: individuals have the ability to express their needs, family members feeling heard and understood, and family members ability to disagree with respectful communication. It is most effective when the entire immediate family is able to participate.
