Family Therapy in Temecula CA
Treatment in Temecula, CA
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps families or individuals within a family understand and improve the way family members interact with each other and resolve conflicts together. At Aspire Wellness Clinic, we believe this type of therapy strengthens the entire family, allowing each family member to rely on one another to work towards desired family change. The family can be the biggest source of support, comfort, joy and love. At times, it can also be your greatest source of stress and grief. A health crisis, marital struggle, mental illness, work problems or teenage rebellion may threaten to tear your family apart.
family therapy Goal
You’ll set individual and family goals and work on ways to achieve them as a family. Starting therapy with an Aspire Wellness therapist can be one of the best things you do when your family is experiencing difficulty. You can begin to heal emotional wounds, come to understand one another better and restore a sense of harmony you may not have felt for a long time.
Addressing family arguments can be a difficult and challenging event given the number of people and personalities that become involved. Working with your Aspire Wellness Clinic therapist, we recognize that often a family’s patterns of relating to each other and style of communication can be deeply entrenched. Often, roles within the family have been well established with individual members being identified with such labels as “the over-achiever”, “the trouble-maker”, “the peace-maker”, or “the enabler”.
Importantly, whenever a situation starts to control our lives, affecting our everyday functioning, it is a clear signal we need a neutral perspective. Healthy conflict is a natural part of any relationship; ongoing stress is not. There are several warning signs of undue stress for both children and parents. If your eating habits or sleeping patterns have changed recently or if you feel tired and down most of the time and there is no physical explanation, this could be an indication you are experiencing higher than normal levels of stress. Significant weight gain or loss, anxiousness, irritability and consistent headaches and or stomachaches can also signal a body in overload. If you or your child is abusing alcohol or using drugs, this is a sure sign you need help. Skipping school, failing grades and promiscuous behavior are all good indicators that something is wrong. Whether you are aware or not, the conflicts in your life can seriously affect both your emotional and physical well-being. Unresolved issues can quickly overtake our lives and affect everyone around us. Although we will never be able to completely remove all of life’s many conflicts, often counseling can offer us a new perspective and give us the tools to resolve it in a healthy and acceptable way. Sometimes an impartial voice is all that is needed to clear the way for mutual understanding and a peaceful existence.
