Enhanced Relationships and Family Dynamics
Family and couples therapy at The Ross Center is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of the family. We work with you to identify patterns or systems of interaction that are causing conflict, and seek to make adjustments to improve family functioning.
Therapy is focused on the family system, and it includes those members of the family who play a long term supportive role for one another. We sometimes recommend family or couples therapy to be used in conjunction with other treatments to help a family member suffering with a mental illness, since it can be difficult to know how to interact when a loved one suffers from anxiety and depression. Family therapy can help the entire family understand the anxiety and teach new, more helpful methods of interaction.
During family therapy sessions, you’ll learn new skills to enhance family connections that are specifically appropriate for your own family members. These are skills that can be used during times of conflict as well as throughout your lifetime to guide each of you toward individual change and progress and more cohesive family dynamics.
Relationship Counseling Helps You Navigate Problems
At the Ross Center, our therapists provide couples counseling that results in improved relationships, offering you techniques and strategies that can have a positive impact on communication and behavior.
For couples, we help you regain trust and commitment through a process of identifying patterns and behaviors that are detrimental to your relationship. You will learn to identify the habits and thought patterns that are causing conflict and navigate challenges and discord more effectively. Whether married or dating, in long-term relationships or newly partnered, relationship counseling can help you correct negative cycles and develop stronger connections for long term satisfaction.
In families, we work within your current situation and help you identify the roles and actions for each person in the family. This education and identification helps everyone to change patterns and ways of responding and allows people to work together to develop more harmonious interactions.
