Growing Together As A Family
Counseling for Families
When a family member suffers with a mental illness or disorder, the entire family is impacted. Siblings can struggle with understanding what their brother or sister is going through. Children can be confused by the anger of their parents.
Hiding your emotional and mental struggles from the other members of your family only makes it more complicated for everyone. When you acknowledge that you are struggling and ask for the support of your family, you will often find that they are ready to provide it, they just may not know how.
We work with every member of your family, both in group, couple, and individual counseling sessions to help you learn more about how you can support each other and overcome your own emotional or mental hurdles. With family counseling, we can guide the conversation so that it stays productive, as well as teach you communication techniques you can use at home. When you better learn to understand, empathize, and support the other members of your family, everyone is happier.
We look forward to helping you build a more supportive home, where all members feel welcome, heard, and comfortable seeking the support they need. We also assist with marriage counseling, couples counseling, and premarital counseling to help make sure your relationship with your spouse is healthy as well.
Help For the Youngest Members
Counseling For Children
Children are susceptible to mental, emotional, and behavioral issues, and often do not have the tools they need to handle them appropriately. Children are under more stress than ever before, with the high pressures of academics and their peers. When you add in the constant connectivity they have to the outside world through the internet, it can be hard for kids to take the time they need to regroup and assess their mental well-being. Bullying no longer stays in the schoolyard, so it is up to us as parents to be attentive to the mental and emotional health of our children.
Whether your child struggles with a long-term mental disorder, such as ADHD, or is trying to heal from their first heartbreak, we are there for them. We know that sometimes you just need an outside party who can listen, understand, and provide the tools you need to work through your challenges. We can work with the whole family to understand how to best support the family member who is suffering.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. You don’t have to solve everything yourself. Minds need maintenance just like our bodies do, so regular mental health checkups starting at a young age can help you to better handle your emotions long term, and help your children to build healthier, happier relationships and families themselves. Our children’s counselors are dedicated to providing outstanding to support to the youngest members of your family.
Dealing with Loss At Any Age
Grief Counseling & Elder Counseling
Losing friends, spouses, siblings, and sometimes even children is one of the most heartbreaking experiences we face in our lives. Everyone struggles with the death of a loved one, whether you are a child dealing with loss for the first time or struggling with losing your spouse of 50 years. Even if you have dealt with grief before, each loss is different and can impact you in different ways.
Grief counseling can help you deal with this challenging time. If you are finding that grief has become too much for you to handle on your own, our experienced grief counselors are here for you.
Just because you have gotten older doesn’t mean that it is any easier to handle loss. Elderly people often struggle with depression, loneliness, and their own sense of mortality when they lose someone close to them, making it hard for them to maintain hope for their own future. Senior counseling can not only help the wisest members of our families during their hardest times, it can also help them to regain their sense of purpose and place in a world that sometimes may seem like it has forgotten them.
Whether you are dealing with the loss of a loved one or struggling with the idea of your own mortality, our dedicated, compassionate grief counselors and elder counselors provide the tools, resources, and support you need to overcome the emotional hurdles you are facing.
Becoming a Better Partner & Parent
Want to help your kids or spouse with their emotional problems but aren’t sure how? Supporting your family with their mental health challenges may require you adding some new tools to your emotional toolbox.
Whether you are struggling with problems of your own, or want to learn to be a more supportive partner or parent, our individual counselors can work with you one-on-one to help you develop the skills you need for success at home.
When you are better able to handle your own mental health, you can make sure that you are always giving your best self to those that you love. When you can give your spouse and children the love, attention, and support that they need and deserve, all of you will benefit.
We provide individual counseling for all members of the family, allowing them to dedicate the time that they need to develop both their own mental health and the skills that they need to support those around them.
