Family Therapy
in Los Angeles

The family structure is an integral part of human life. As humans, we are bound by the connection of our family ties, whether your family is composed of blood relatives, chosen family, friends, adoptive parents, or a family formed through a union.

 

Unfortunately, family relationships are not always easy to navigate. People don’t realize how beneficial family therapy in Los Angeles can be to help learn the tools and skills it takes to positively change family dynamics.

Families often struggle with the inability to communicate effectively, arguments and disagreements, and sometimes neglect and abuse within the home. The issues can go beyond hurt feelings and become more serious, creating a strain on relationships that can last for years.

How We Help Families Repair Relationships

 

When hurt happens in family relationships, be it intentional or unintentional, it can leave one feeling isolated, abandoned, and unheard. We understand the importance of family relationships, especially when family members are facing challenging issues and need support. We offer family therapy to help family members process their feelings and repair broken relationships.

Custom-fit individualized treatment programs for each family member

We believe in family collaboration, meaningful dialogue, conflict resolution, communication skill building, and boundary setting. Our family therapist also creates an individualized treatment plan to meet specific needs. We provide guidance and support during the process of family healing.

Learn how to identify patterns, ques and how to deal with them

 

Based on family-focused modalities, our services are aimed at regulation and overall family well-being. We help the members involved identify family patterns, family strengths, family relationships, and family roles that contribute to issues in a family system.

 

During therapy sessions, we guide the members to acquire family-building skills, discuss strategies for problem-solving, and build family trust and understanding.

Determine what schedule and approach works best for all members

Sessions can be anywhere from 60-90 minutes and family members are guided through a journey of self-discovery and family connection. We do the sessions with all members present, but an individual member can have a one-on-one with a counselor as needed.

 

The family-centered treatment plan usually lasts around 12 sessions, but we can adjust the duration depending on the situation.

Types of Approaches Used in Family Therapy

 

The choice of family therapy approach depends on the family's needs and what the family wants to get out of family therapy. Our family therapist has a wide range of expertise in family therapy.

 

Some common family therapy frameworks are:
 

  • Narrative therapy

  • Systemic therapy

  • Structural therapy

  • Solution-focused therapy

  • Intergenerational therapy

  • Marriage counseling/couples therapy

  • Communication theory

  • Cognitive Behavioral therapy

Benefits of Family Counseling

 

The effectiveness of family therapy is most obvious when family members learn how to function as a unit. With the help of a therapist, family members can gain a newfound appreciation for each member's strengths, weaknesses, and needs. This can result in the following:

  • Improved family functioning

  • Healthier family communication

  • A better understanding of family roles, expectations, and boundaries

  • Greater family unity and cohesion

  • An enhanced level of support among family members.

  • Reduced family stress and overall family conflict

  • Improved anger management skills.

 

When families participate in therapy treatment, 90% of them report an improvement in emotional health, relationship, and family functioning. 66% report improvement in their physical health, while for child-parent problems, 73% of parents report improvement in the child's behavior. Family therapy improves family relationships by:

 

  • Fostering a sense of unity for the family after a crisis

  • Creating honesty (openness and truthfulness) among family members

  • Restoring and instilling trust

  • Developing a supportive family culture

  • Restoring family relationships

  • Learning to be flexible and open to growth and development

  • Providing family members with problem-solving skills.
