Family Counseling Services | St. Louis Family Therapist

Family counseling is a type of counseling or therapy that addresses problems or issues through group therapy and involves several or all of the members in a family. Family counseling may be incident specific, such as during a divorce or following the death of a family member.

What Is Family Counseling

Family counseling believes that regardless of the origin of a problem and regardless if a problem is considered an “individual” or “family” problem, the best solution can often come from working together during family counseling or therapy sessions. Family counseling understands that the relationships between family members can have an impact on each family member’s psychological health. It recognizes that the interaction between family members during times of change may have a large impact on each individual’s well-being. Therefore, family counseling involves the direct participation of several or all family members.

Family counseling traditionally refers to the traditional concept of counseling between parents and children. However, it can also include counseling between other individuals who have developed strongly supportive, long-term roles and relationships with one another including those who may or may not be related by blood or marriage.

When to Consider Family Counseling

Family Counseling for Parents and Adolscents

Family counseling can encourage adolescents and families as they are going through tough times or as they are overcoming and reacting to major life-changing events. Family counseling can teach family members new and more positive ways to communicate with each other. During family counseling, a therapist may encourage open communication between parents and adolescents in order to overcome problems and handle stressful events and conflicts.

Family counseling and therapy is a good idea in a number of types of situations especially:

  • During periods of major transition including divorce, remarriage, or moves
  • When a teenager or adolescent is having social or academic problems
  • When adolescents and parents are frequently arguing and having communication problems
  • When children are diagnosed with ADHD, depression, or an eating disorder
  • Following the death of a loved one or close family member
  • If an adolescent has been through a life-altering event
  • When a family member is diagnosed with a mental or physical illness
