Family Counseling

Bringing The Help You Need to You Through Virtual Family Therapy

Every family is its own miniature culture. Families have their own ways, practices, methods of communication, and—of course—issues. Unlike uncomfortable situations in the workplace or between friends, families are united by a prevailing bond, meaning that any family discord feels, in essence, inescapable. 

Even so, strife among family members is not insurmountable. Virtual family counseling from Finding Clarity can give a name and identity to a range of issues while also offering a path forward.

Our treatment specializations include:
  • Family and Marital Conflicts
  • Separation and Divorce
  • Adoption
  • Child/Adolescent Behavioral Problems
  • Communication

 

Family & Marital Conflicts

Conflicts between family members are, of course, deeply personal. Given the nature of the relationship, these conflicts can endure for years or even lifetimes. Rifts between parents often open wide enough to include children, making a swift resolution crucial.


Separation & Divorce

As the family dynamic changes, our emotions—especially in children—come untethered. While searching for reasoning and understanding, we’re also busy building a new life and grappling with grief. Mental health is absolutely necessary during this difficult time.


Adoption

Though undertaken through an act of joy, adoptions can be turbulent for both parents and child. As everyone adjusts to the new normal, resentments, fears, doubts, and conflicts arise. To get your new family off on the right foot, consider family counseling.


Child/Adolescent Behavioral Problems

Linking thoughts and emotions to behavior can be a difficult task at best. Sometimes, we need an outside perspective to identify the unmet needs of our children. Guess work and intense discipline may seem like noble ideas, but they could lead to more harm than good.


Communication

Over the years, families tacitly agree to both minimum and maximum forms of expression. At worst we say nothing or engage in regular, painful outbursts. When we fail to communicate in a respectful way, we contribute to a quotient of resentment, hostility, and hardship.

What To Expect From Family Counseling

At Finding Clarity, we’ll meet your family where you are—both in the virtual and emotional sense. There are no one-size-fits-all goals at the outset. Instead, our family therapist will start by familiarizing themself with your unique family and its equally unique challenges. 

After a few initial meetings, your Finding Clarity counselor will devise a strategy for treatment. This treatment plan includes regular sessions for discussion, in-session techniques designed for clearer communication, and other stress and anger management skills, such as breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, and more.

Once the temperature has been turned down on the conflict itself through ample communication and sharing, your family therapist will use the therapeutic relationship they’ve established to guide your family toward a clearer, collective understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I bring my children to family counseling?

While every case is different, we typically advise bringing your children along. Your family counselor will have multiple approaches they can take with your children, and it often is helpful to have them in the room as issues are discussed. However, you and your counselor can decide what is best for your unique situation.

Does my family need family therapy if my partner and I are getting a divorce?
It is possible! Separation and divorce can lead to many other family issues, such as co-parenting or child behavioral problems. Additionally, it can help bring clarity and understanding to process your relationship with an outside source, such as our Finding Clarity counselors.
What are the benefits of family counseling?
Parents usually leave family counseling feeling in a better position to understand and manage child behaviors. Or in a co-parenting situation, parents become more confident in the strategies to ease transitions for their children. However, family therapy not only provides benefits to parents, but families as a whole. Learning effective communication, conflict-resolution, and relationship skills can help to better solve family disagreements and strengthen family bonds.
