FAMILY THERAPY

The Center for Creative Arts Therapy believes ALL relationships can benefit from therapy to reduce stress, conflict and improve connection, while significantly improving relationship strengths, connection, respectful communication, healthy boundaries, happiness and intimacy.

 

The creative arts therapies give voice to families through expressive art materials, music, movement and role play. When words are not available for expression or communication of difficult feelings, the arts can speak instead. It is a language without words, offering a means for individualized and unique personal expression. Both the art itself and the process of creating art can provide families with a non-verbal avenue to communicate, problem solve, express self and emotions, and positively cope with difficult experiences and life changes.

 

Let us support you and your family through compassionately creative counseling and arts-based psychotherapy services. Contact us to schedule a consultation.

Family therapy sessions are created to identify and foster familial strengths. Your life, experiences and relationships are intricate and unique. At The Center for Creative Arts Therapy, our therapists work collaboratively to provide families compassionately creative counseling and arts-based psychotherapy that impacts each aspect of their lives.

 

During therapy, family members work with a therapist to uncover the underlying issues that are causing disharmony in the home like feelings of self-doubt, fears of failure, fears of fully utilizing one’s potential, and long-standing self-criticism. These underlying issues can manifest as and/or be related to:

Anger
Anxiety & Stress
Career Choices
Codependency
Depression
Divorce
Grief & Loss
Low Self-Esteem
Mood Disorders
Parenting Issues
Stress
Work/Life Balance

Typically, the first several sessions are used by the therapist to obtain information and better understand what is causing issues within family relationships. The therapist’s job is to use their training to help family members make sense of these difficulties and create a clear-enough plan for how to resolve those symptoms. This can take several sessions, however, the couple should start to feel gradually understood by the therapist and should have some sense of what the therapy can accomplish.
