Parents of a family might not be getting along, sibling relationships might be struggling, and/or school/behavioral issues might be rearing their ugly heads. Whatever the cause of turmoil within your family, Choices Psychotherapy can help Minnetonka families right now.
The skills learned in these sessions won’t just help familial connections and bonds, but can translate into other parts of your family’s life, too. Don’t just learn to how to communicate better within your family, but also with the sources causing you interference outside of your family. Learn how to speak better with coworkers or classmates or get insight into how to actively listen and understand before reacting.
With each member of your family constantly growing and developing unique and varied personalities, conflicts are sure to arise once in a while. Family therapy is based on the concepts that:
1) Another family member or the family structure as a whole may be affected by any type of change with just a single member,
2) If one member of a family is suffering from or causing problems that ripple throughout the whole family, that is often a sign of a larger problem
These concepts further encourage the participation of all family members, as treating just one is like treating a single symptom of a broader disease. Our family therapists are well-trained and experienced in finding the source of internal family strife. If you live in or near Minnetonka, let Choices help open your lines of communication, enhance familial bonds and resolve your family issues.
