Who needs Marriage & Family Counseling?
Counseling can sometimes carry a stigma. Because of that, many clients will delay seeking help until they are experiencing tension, negativity, or animosity in their relationship(s). However, everyone can benefit from the communication skills and personal insight afforded to them by a licensed counselor- whether you are trying to navigate conflict or simply looking to improve your bond with a family member(s) or partner.
Signs that you or someone you love may need Counseling
Seeing our behavior accurately is challenging for everyone. Gathering the courage to face your own shortfalls, or compassionately communicate to loved one behavior or habit that is hurtful or unhealthy can seem impossible, but it’s the first step toward moving forward in your relationships.
If you or someone you know is engaging any of the following behaviors, it may be time to seek help:
- Substance abuse begins, continues, or worsens
- Engaging in self-harm or thoughts of suicide
- Violence or abusive behavior towards others
- Anger, depression, or lack of motivation
- Inability to communicate without lashing out
Together you, your loved one(s), and your therapist will identify goals and the milestones needed to reach them. The goals you set with your licensed counselor will help pave the way toward more open and positive relationships.
