Couples and Family Counseling

Couples and Family CounselingFamily therapy is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families and couples in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. It tends to view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members. It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.

The different schools of family therapy have in common a belief that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an “individual” or “family” issue, involving families in solutions often benefits clients. This involvement of families is commonly accomplished by their direct participation in the therapy session. The skills of the family therapist thus include the ability to influence conversations in a way that builds upon the strengths, wisdom, and support of the wider system.

When Should You Consider Counseling?

Sometimes the hardest thing is admitting to yourself that you need help with a difficult situation. The challenges of everyday life can become very difficult and overwhelming, with no solutions in sight. There are, however, student counselors available who can help. Counselors provide an objective point of view and can help you identify resources of which you are not aware. Counselors can also help you acquire skills to cope with your current challenges, whether they are internal struggles, personal relationships, or issues related to school or work settings.

You should consider seeing a counseling if:

  • The solutions you try don’t seem to work.
  • Worrying about your problems gets in the way of doing what you need to do (school, work, family, etc.).
  • Your reactions to people and/or difficult situations are stronger than usual.
  • You are feeling hopeless with nowhere to turn for help.
  • You wish you could talk to someone to help you sort through things.
  • You know it’s time to make a change.
