We all know that when one family member is struggling, everyone struggles. Families often go through difficult situations together.
One of the greatest barriers of mental health treatment is the stigmatization that occurs to the individual identified as “mentally ill.” Since mental health issues impact the entire family, it makes sense to treat the whole family. At Oregon Counseling, our approach to counseling includes helping families adjust, realign and cope with trauma, anxiety, depression, and change that naturally impacts the whole family.
Family relationships can be complex. Research on family counseling suggests that this form of therapy is an ideal approach for the treatment of typically ‘individual‘ mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety. If you really think about this, it makes a lot of sense. Depression does not occur in a vacuum. It affects (and is impacted by) family and close friends.
At Oregon Counseling, our therapists provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment. In therapy, they observe family dynamics first-hand and how family members communicate with each other. They can identify patterns and increase insight about them. From there, our therapists can help your family develop solutions for your relationships with one another moving forward. This includes tools for you to better communicate with each other. Overall, our goal is to help you and your family find new ways to love and support each other.
