Family Counseling

Family counseling can be a very valuable experience. When two or more members of a family agree to communicate openly and resolve old hurts and differences in a healthy way, it is often a very rewarding experience. Honesty and sincerity in family counseling gives all of you the opportunity to become much more loving and supportive of each other and actually enjoy spending time together.

The Impact of Your Dysfunctional Family 

All of us came from dysfunctional families. The question is not whether your family was dysfunctional; it’s how dysfunctional was it? Did you experience abandonment, abuse or neglect in your family of origin? Were you guided and supported to become your true self? Were you encouraged to express your feelings in healthy ways and work out your differences openly?

The field of Psychology has only recently become aware of the impact our dysfunctional families have on our long-term emotional health. Because of that, the emotional damage we experienced was often unintentional. Even when our parents had the best of intentions, they generally didn’t have the knowledge or skills to help us develop healthy emotional habits, because they, themselves, had unresolved emotional issues.

Today we have the opportunity to resolve the emotional damage we experienced and develop loving, healthy relationships with our immediate family members. We just have to be willing to take responsibility for our own issues and hold the intention to be loving and respectful; then little by little, our family relationships can improve.
