What Is Family Therapy?
Family Therapy is a unique opportunity for family members to meet with a skilled and professional therapist to talk through issues creating stress, tension and distance. Families are an important source of support and love. When misunderstanding and disagreement goes unaddressed, frustration and tension pushes families apart. A BLOOM WELLNESS CENTER therapist will help your family explore your unique history and identify troublesome family dynamics to get you back on track. Siblings or parent and child dyads are welcome. If you and your family members are experiencing complicated family dynamics and feel they are impacting your ability to be loving to one another, then adult family therapy at BLOOM WELLNESS CENTER might be right for you.

What to Expect in Family Therapy
In family therapy, all interested family members 13+ meet together weekly with one of our skilled and professional therapists. During this 50-minute session, the therapist will help facilitate the process by helping each person communicate their thoughts and feelings. Over time, you will begin to develop understanding and empathy for yourself and your family members while also learning to identify communication patterns that no longer serve you. Moving through this process allows healthier communication to emerge and results in decreased family stress and tension.
