There's a saying... "people go to therapy to talk about people in their life that don't go to therapy." Sometimes we attempt to resolve conflict in our relationships without talking directly to the people that are in that relationship, and it makes the most sense to include them in our sessions! At Graceful Therapy, we take a family systems approach to all clients, meaning that even if an individual client is the only one in the room, we're considering the family dynamic, the culture, and relationships that they go home to each day.
We often invite our clients to consider engaging in family therapy with their loved ones if the primary topic has to do with resolving conflict or improving communication with these family members. Family Therapy is appropriate when the members of the concern are all willing to engage in therapeutic resolution and able to be present for a session (we can even meet virtually!).
Clinicians at Graceful Therapy utilize techniques such as Structural Family Therapy, Gottman Relationship tools, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. If you think your family could benefit from improved communication or learn how to resolve conflict, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
