we are family

we are family

 

Since before any of us were born.  God planned for us to share our lives with each other. He knows exactly how our strengths and weakness would balance one another, and the depth of love, understanding, and commitment we would learn to feel.  He knew the richness of our separate characters would be developed through the hard times, and that mutual trust and respect would be born as a result of overcoming the trials together.

 

family counseling

 

Family counseling allows an entire family to open communications with one another and to resolve issues that are affecting the family as a whole. Family counseling can be done with any type of family, whether it is a traditional two parent family, a single parent family or an adoptive, blended or step family. Different counselors use different approaches to family therapy. Some counselors will have all members of the family gather each session to work out communications issues together; other therapists may break family sessions down into smaller components, meeting sometimes with parents / adult partners together and other times with individual family members.

Whatever type of family counseling you choose, working as a family can resolve many difficult dynamics that often do not respond to individual counseling. In every family system, there is a dynamic, or pattern of behavior and communication, which develops through the family's history. Intervening on just one or two people in this family system often will not address the larger communication difficulties that are creating conflict. Sometimes doing individual counseling with someone in a family can assist that individual in breaking patterns on his or her own, but then as soon as she/he steps back into the family system, the patterns reemerge because the FAMILY dynamic has not changed. This is the value of family counseling: it works on the dynamics and communications difficulties of the family as a unit, so that lasting change can be achieved for all family members.
