What Can Marriage & Family Therapy Help Treat?

Using principles of structural family therapy and family systems theory, we recognize the family as a complex social system. This perspective allows us to address a wide range of issues by understanding and improving the dynamics within the family, including:

  • Communication barriers
  • Interpersonal conflicts
  • Behavioral issues in children
  • Adjusting to family transitions, such as divorce or relocation
  • Coping with loss and grief
  • Navigating cultural, religious, or socioeconomic differences

ResWell’s approach to mental healthcare ensures that your family receives the understanding, tools, and support needed to foster a healthy and cohesive family environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during our first family therapy session?

In your initial family therapy session, your family will meet with a licensed marriage and family therapist or a clinical psychologist in a welcoming and confidential environment to discuss the challenges you’re experiencing. This session is an opportunity for each family member to share their perspective and for the therapist to begin understanding the family dynamics.

The therapist may outline a preliminary approach to treatment. This is also a great time for family members to ask questions, express concerns, and start building a relationship with the therapist.

What is a licensed marriage and family therapist?

A licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) is a mental health professional specially trained to diagnose and provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples, and families. These therapists focus on the complex relationships and dynamics within marriages and families, addressing a wide range of issues, from communication problems and interpersonal conflicts to significant life transitions and mental health disorders.

LMFTs employ a variety of therapeutic techniques and approaches grounded in understanding the patterns, emotional processes, and roles within relationship systems. Their goal is to facilitate healing, promote understanding, and improve the functioning of individuals within their relational contexts. By considering the broader family system and the influence of relationships on your well-being, marriage and family therapists play a crucial role in enhancing the mental health and resilience of families and couples.

How often do we need to attend family and marriage therapy sessions?

The frequency of your family therapy sessions will be personalized to meet the specific needs and goals of your family. While sessions may initially be scheduled weekly to address issues more intensively, this may change as your family progresses.

How do I know if family therapy is right for us?

Family therapy can be beneficial for any family experiencing communication issues, conflicts, or other challenges affecting the family’s overall well-being. If you’re considering whether family therapy is the right step, reach out to us to find clarity and guidance on how therapy might address your family’s unique situation.

How does family therapy differ from other forms of therapy?

Family therapy focuses on the family unit as a whole, rather than on individuals separately. It aims to improve communication, resolve conflicts, and enhance relationships within the family context. Unlike individual therapy, family therapy involves multiple family members working together with the therapist to understand and improve their interactions and relationships.

Do you offer telehealth appointments for family therapy?

The first meeting is usually in person. Although we do offer telehealth appointments, we strongly encourage participation through in-person family therapy sessions for improved efficacy of treatment. Specific scheduling depends on the treatment plan developed with your provider.

Do you accept insurance for family therapy?

While we do not accept insurance, we provide patients with the documentation necessary to file a claim with their insurance carriers.
