Watching someone you love try to face their mental health concerns can understandably be challenging. When those issues start interfering with that person’s life, and impacting the family relationships as a result, many turn to family therapy interventions. Family therapy can also help couples with marital or financial issues. Some families choose therapy when learning how to provide support for someone with a mental illness, or when parents and children are in conflict.
Seeking professional therapy from a licensed practitioner is a key first step toward recovery and healing. Depending on the modality or family therapy theories chosen, the family can work together during counseling and at home towards living life with open communication and family support.
