• Has your family been through a recent major life stressor?
  • Are you struggling to know how to best communicate with your children?
  • Is your family experiencing a high level of conflict?

Family relationships can be challenged by big life transitions, including trauma, conflict, and other external stressors, taking a huge toll on everyone’s mental health and well-being.  When these issues arise, people can feel blamed or targeted leading to increased conflict, withdrawal, or unhealthy coping strategies.

Family issues can be addressed in therapy through individual work, couples therapy, parenting support, or family therapy. At Wellspring, every kind of family is welcome. There is no “one size fits all” solution to the inevitable social, emotional and behavioral challenges that all families face.

Our therapists work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your family’s unique needs. We look at the family as a whole and approach treatment from a strength-based lens to help resolve your challenges. Addressing family issues can help strengthen the bonds between family members. Wellspring therapists are compassionate, caring, and able to provide guidance and strategies for a whole range of issues including:

  • A significant life change such as divorce, loss of a family member, or a move
  • Difficulties with anger management
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • School refusal
  • Intense irritability or mood changes
  • Social isolation or interpersonal difficulties
  • Trauma-related difficulties
  • Sleep issues (such as insomnia, wakefulness, or nightmares)
  • Technology related challenges – excessive use or overuse

Our therapists are trained to utilize a range of evidence-based strategies including interpersonal neurobiology, cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment-based and trauma-specific treatment, dialectical behavioral therapy, social learning, and sand tray therapy. Individuals may learn ways to express their feelings and communicate more effectively, thereby helping your family find new ways of working together.

If you have a family issue you’d like to address, feel free to call our Intake Coordinators who can help assist you with deciding where to get started.
