Sometimes a family is in chaos because of an event such as a loss, a divorce, changes in a work situation, issues with children, parenting struggles, or a family member may not feel they are being heard. Someone in the family may not feel as if they matter, or they may feel as if they are being bullied. These situations can create turmoil within the family and family therapy provides a place to work things out. Family therapy presents an opportunity for family members to express their feelings and needs within a safe environment. Within the therapy process each family member will gain a better understanding of the others and address the issues creating the family difficulties. The therapeutic setting creates a foundation for family cohesiveness and unity.
