I believe that if one member of the family is going to change, then everyone else needs to change as well. Family therapy can be scary or intimidating at first. Some family members may be worried about blame being placed or that family therapy is a set up for some sort of boxing match that could go 12 rounds and the therapist is the referee sending people to their corners! I love demystifying family therapy. It is helpful for me to see how your family naturally interacts and communicates with each other. Then we work collaboratively on identifying common goals. Once the goals are established and everyone agrees, healing occurs through a combination of learning new communication styles, reflecting and understanding your own needs, as well as the needs of your family members, and true forgiveness.
