Even the best relationships can face challenges that are difficult to overcome without the professional guidance offered through family therapy.


At Greenpoint Psychotherapy, we offer a supportive space for your family and loved ones to rebuild relationships negatively affected by trauma, stress, betrayal, or other factors.


Our experienced therapists take an integrative approach to helping your family navigate through difficult emotions, so you can each enjoy a happier, more fulfilling life.


What to know about family therapy


Family therapy helps you and your loved ones recognize each other’s needs and personal challenges. Therapy also provides you with tools you can use to better support your family unit.


Under the expert guidance of your therapist, family members and other close loved ones can learn how to communicate with each other in a more efficient way. Therapy gives you a safe environment to honestly express your thoughts and emotions without fear of judgment.


Another benefit of family therapy is that you and your family can address issues that interfere with healthy relationships at the same time so that everyone is on the same page.


5 reasons to consider family therapy


There are many difficulties that families face, especially as everyone ages and copes with common life changes. Here are five reasons to consider starting family therapy:


1. Grief


The loss of a loved one or grief over a life-changing circumstance can take a toll on your physical and mental health. You and your family may also experience intense emotions, including guilt, anger, and sadness that are difficult to manage on your own.


2. Divorce or separation


One of the biggest challenges families can face is the breakdown of the family unit due to divorce or separation. There may also be relationship issues that result when one or both parents try to move on with a new partner.


3. Infidelity


Infidelity can significantly impact the lives of the adults and children in the family and is a leading cause of divorce. Family therapy can preserve your relationship and keep the family unit intact if both partners want to move forward together.


4. Disconnection


Even in families with lots of people, it’s possible to feel disconnected and alone. If your family’s schedule is always packed with activities and you feel like your unit is falling apart, family therapy can be the glue that keeps you together and guides you back to healthy relationships.


5. Blended families


Blending a family can cause considerable challenges that influence the dynamic of the new household. Family therapy is a great way to give each individual a chance to express their feelings about the situation, so family members can find a level of peace, understanding, and what each person needs to feel loved.


There are also many more reasons to consider family therapy. Our psychotherapy team can customize a therapy plan to your family’s specific needs and goals. We continue to work with you on a family basis and can also meet with you for individual therapy sessions to address your unique needs and challenges.
