Family Conflict Counseling Services

Family relationships can be both rewarding and challenging.

When conflict arises between family members, relationships can become complicated. Conflict with some members can easily spread to impact other relationships within the family as well.

You may feel unable to speak up or set boundaries due to expectations of how members of a family should interact.

It can be hard to navigate family relationships in a way that allows you to stay true to yourself.

While the goal is often to keep the family intact, it is equally important to explore if time apart may be needed. We will partner with you to work toward peace despite differing values, world views, or life choices.

It is time to have freedom from the conflict!

We’ll use the strength-based approach to help manage Family Conflict:

  • Gaining insight into triggers for family conflict and identifying proactive strategies.
  • Exploring your needs and preferences for how to maintain healthy relationships.
  • Refining and adapting skills to foster effective communication.
  • Developing skills to navigate the many aspects of managing family relationships and
    conflict.
  • Allowing space to explore what you are feeling while working toward a place of acceptance.
  • Protecting your independence, resilience, and ability to make choices for your overall wellbeing.
What to expect from counseling for Family Conflict:

We create a unique counseling process that is tailored to each person’s strengths and experiences.

Counseling is meant to be a time of self-exploration and growth. Your clinician will tailor treatment to your specific needs based on your goals and what you would like to achieve. Counseling has the potential to be short-term or long-term based on your individual needs.

Sustained progress can be made in as few as 8 weekly sessions, but most people find that they need treatment for a minimum of several months. We encourage you to attend weekly sessions, as this allows you to establish a close working relationship with your clinician and to make progress more quickly. Our hope is for you to reach your goals sooner rather than later so that you can live the life you desire.

Both before and during your first session, you will be asked to provide information about yourself and your reasons for seeking counseling. During the first session, your clinician will briefly review Restorative Counseling’s policies so that you are aware of your rights as a client and can ask any questions you may have. The primary focus of the intake process is to discuss your personal, social, family, and educational history to help give your clinician an overall picture of who you are. Goals for treatment will be discussed and your clinician will provide insight into how they conduct counseling sessions.

In addition to learning about you, the Intake process is a time for you to learn about your clinician. It is important that you feel they are the right fit for your style and needs. We encourage you to ask questions so you can be clear on what to expect from your clinician.

The intake session(s) typically lasts 55-60 minutes.

Working with you, your clinician will help you explore the sources of your difficulties and develop helpful strategies to address your concerns. Your clinician will provide a space for you to identify your strengths and difficulties. You will be empowered to decide what works best for you and what changes you are ready to make.

Ongoing sessions are 45-53 minutes, depending on your insurance plan.

As you move through the counseling process, you and your clinician will discuss your progress. Once it has been decided that you have achieved your goals, you and your clinician will discuss terminating services. These final few sessions will focus on reviewing the progress you have made and how you can continue to maintain these changes moving forward.

We will help you develop the tools necessary to successfully manage family conflict.
