After a long day, it is hard to go home to conflict and tension. You want to get along with your kids, but it is just not happening! Chores are stressful, homework is stressful, disrespect is high.

You many even feel as though something is wrong with you or that you are a failure as a parent. You are tired. Change is needed.
Families have conflict
All families have conflict, it is unavoidable. Personalities can clash. Because of unique needs and challenges, having a child who has ADHD or another mental health challenge can also increase conflict in the home. The child or teen is often stressed, feeling misunderstood, and tired. The parents may have additional conflict within their relationship because they want to deal with things differently. Nobody is especially happy or connected. It hurts. The good news is family therapy can help reduce conflict, improve communication, and improve connection.
Family therapy can help you get your family life back on track
Family counseling can help family members learn how to communicate more effectively. Your therapist may work in session with you on ways for each member to feel heard. Family members may also work on conflict resolution skills so when tough situations arise at home you have an agreed upon way to deal with them. You will each learn tools and can support each other in change.
Most of all, strengthening relationships is the goal. Your family therapist may support you in ways to increase healthy attachment. During family counseling each person has a chance for their voices to be heard and their feelings and perspective supported. Since each family member gets heard the family system is supported. When families participate in counseling, it supports individual changes within each member. Especially relevant, it can be difficult for any one person in the family to make significant changes if there isn’t a shift in the family system. Therefore, family counseling supports system and individual change. If you are tired hurt feelings in your house, family counseling may be the best path to take.

Family therapy is an investment in your family as a whole and each person as an individual within the family.
