Family Counseling

“Can’t we all just get along?”

family counselingWhat matters more to you than the health and happiness of your family? Nothing, right? However, we don’t recognize how important a strong, supportive family unit is to the well being of each individual within the family. At Valencia Relationship Institute, family counseling works to strengthen and nurture the complex relationships within families. At VRI, our therapists help to improve parenting and communication skills in order to strengthen parent-child relationships. Rather than attempt to ‘fix’ the individual, we encourage the family to talk openly about these issues and attempt to find the root of the problem within an open discussion. Once we find the root of the problem, we can begin to provide the family with hope towards developing a close-knit relationship with one another.

Family Counseling can focus on:

  • Parent-Child Conflict
  • Blended and Step Families
  • Academic Struggles
  • Behavioral Issues
  • Divorce and Separation
  • Grief & Loss

Many families use family counseling as a way to help avoid potential problems in the event of major life changes, such as divorce or a new marriage. When divorced people who have children from a previous marriages decide to remarry, for instance, they often choose to go through VRI family counseling in order to talk through the expectations, concerns, and hopes of all family members so that there is a smooth transition. Changes like these are never as stress-free as we think they will be. Family counseling is a positive way to help build trust to ensure a solid foundation for the new family you’re establishing. Showing that you’re there to support one another at the beginning is preventive medicine and will start you off to creating a healthy family. It’s time to make your family a priority and feel better…
