Family Therapy focuses on the family as a whole. It can be requested by a family member who calls Parish Health and Wellness, Inc. or progress as an additional mode of treatment to augment you or your child’s individual therapy.
Our therapist utilizes a family systems approach when assessing a family. In this approach, each person’s way of thinking, feeling, and interacting is assessed, as well as the interactions between other members of the family. Every family has ways of operating; some they are aware of and others they are not. In therapy we explore our patterns, and make decisions on whether they are working for us, or if we would like to change them. In order for family therapy to be successful, each person has to be willing to look at the issues and want to make positive changes.
