Family Therapy

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on the planet. Definitely underpaid sometimes. The Attach Place is here to help parents feel competent and confident in making connection, and making correction. Our children need us to hold direction for them as they make their way through their developmental milestones into adulthood.

Virtual Family Therapy

Studies have shown that therapy can help individuals be more confident in themselves, operate within their relationships more effectively, and simply lead a happier life overall. 

Online family therapy is a branch of psychotherapy designed to nurture positive parent-child relationships and support healthy development. It provides a unique opportunity for family members to understand each other better, learn more effective communication strategies, and improve each individual’s well-being as well as the general home environment. 

Family therapy can completely transform family life from chaos to calm. Virtual sessions can be effective to support families struggling with issues such as:

  • Challenging behavior
  • Communication issues
  • Emotion Dysregulation Issues
  • Traumatized family members
  • Any other hindrance to a peaceful home environment

Whatever hurdles your family may be facing, you don’t have to go it alone. The Attach Place is here to meet your family therapy needs and expectations with care and professionalism. 

What are the benefits of family therapy?

Nurturing attachment bonds. Not every family finds it easy to feel close to one another, especially when early trauma, dysregulation, or stressors make connection difficult. Creating a safe home environment and positive, peaceful relationships are the primary goals of strengthening families in therapy.

Improving lagging skills in young children. When introduced at a young age, playful family therapy can advance a child’s emotional intelligence as well as improve their communication abilities on a deep level. This can greatly boost a child’s sense of joy and wonder while providing them with the tools to build healthier relationships.

Creating a happier and healthier home life. Sometimes, the most significant factor keeping a family from being their best is simply unresolved conflict or misunderstanding. Bringing a long-standing conflict to light and understanding each others’ points of view can be a huge turning point for particular members of a family or the family, as a whole. A therapist can facilitate the flow of candid communication between family members and assist them on the road to resolution.
