During family therapy, licensed family therapists meet with every family member, including children, to help address issues that one or more family members are facing.
Family Therapy in Federal Way
Family therapy seeks to treat an individual's problems or concerns by looking at how that individual fits into a larger family unit and how the structure, communication, and dynamics within that unit influence and affect the individual.
The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy describes how an individual attending therapy is also embedded in larger, more complex family relationships. For this reason, many family therapists in Federal Way will choose to incorporate family therapy as part of an individual’s unique treatment plan in addition to maintaining individual therapy sessions.
Family Therapy Sessions
Traditionally, a family will participate in fewer therapy sessions overall than a single individual does. Because these group counseling sessions are more brief and specific than “classic” one-on-one therapy, it’s often easier to get to the root of problems and achieve solutions more quickly.
At Thrive Counseling Center, we offer family counseling in addition to parenting support and couples counseling. No matter your family unit's needs, we can help you grow stronger and closer together by working with our licensed family therapists in Auburn, WA.
