Families are a source of support when we need it the most. Our loved ones are important to us, and a family can serve as a foundation for a fulfilling, happy life. However, relationships are never ideal, and that includes the ones we have with the people closest to us. From communication troubles to poor boundaries, families face a wide number of issues that deserve attention. In family therapy, Tinley Park families can overcome obstacles barring them from maintaining healthy relationships. Counseling Works provides unparalleled therapy services to help you and your loved ones move forward to a peaceful home life—together.
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that is intended to resolve relationship issues and other sources of distress among family members. What makes family therapy different from individual therapy is the framework used to resolve interpersonal disputes and other matters.
