Self-esteem, happiness, pride – these positive emotions can be impacted by relationships. But it is not just romantic relationships that matter. Your family relationships matter a great deal as well. When your family faces challenges, it is not uncommon for these challenges to affect other aspects of your life.
Family Relationship Counseling in Long Island
Family dynamics can be complicated. At different points in your life you may find that you need some help with an important family relationship in your life, including:
- Your Parents
- Your Children
- Your Siblings
You may even find that you are having trouble creating a harmonious environment for your family as a whole. When these issues arise, family counseling in Long Island may be a worthwhile solution.
What is Family Counseling and Therapy?
Family counseling is not unlike other forms of relationship counseling, except rather than focus on a couple, the focus is on the family relationship and dynamic. This type of counseling can also be completed individually, to help you work on your own role in your family dynamic and your understanding of the overall family relationship.
In my therapy sessions, we will talk about your family relationship and its history – how you interact, what your experiences have been, why you feel you are having challenges, and more – and we will have an open, safe, judgment free dialogue about what has been going on, and what can be done to help improve the way that you interact with each other.
We may meet individually or together with your family, and we’ll talk about some of the strategies that can be used to heal negative family relationships. Every family counseling session in Long Island will be unique to you and your family because there is no one treatment option that fits everyone. Your own experiences and your own challenges are what affect your family relationship.
