Family therapy, in contrast to individual therapy, focuses on the influences of a family on its members, which could extend to multiple generations. Family therapy focuses on family dynamics and structures, e.g., triangle relationships, boundaries, and alliances. Family therapy is founded on the observation that many mental health problems people developed soon or later in their lives originate from their family environment where they were born and grew up.
Therapy can help treat mental, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues. Concerns that may be discussed in therapy include, but are not limited to:
Family therapy sessions often last from 45 to 50 minutes. If you are a new client, you will be provide a free intake for 30 minutes before you meet your therapist, which helps us to know about you and helps you understand the terms of our service, as well as sign service contract and consent form.
Many kinds of mental health professionals provide therapy. The standards for becoming a therapist usually depend on a state’s licensing board. Therapists often have a master’s or doctoral degree. They may also have specific training in psychological counseling. Students working toward an advanced degree may provide therapy with direction from a licensed supervisor.
Therapists can have many titles. These are based on their level of education, training, and role. They can work as licensed professional counselors (LPC), psychologists, licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW), psychiatric nurses, or psychiatrists.
