Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. Family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family, such as major life transitions or mental health conditions. Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce, or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Family counseling aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals. For example, if a child is having social and academic problems, therapy will focus on the family patterns that may contribute to the child’s acting out, rather than evaluating the child’s behavior alone. As the family uncovers the source of the problem, they can learn to support the child and other family members and work proactively on minimizing or altering the conditions that contribute to the child’s unwanted behavior.

When I first came to Healing Mind, I thought I didn’t need counseling. After the first session, I knew I found an outlet. I want to say thank you to everyone at HMW that believes in me and has helped guide me on a better path.
All of you have been a source of energy from a conduit that generates self-esteem, strong character, a “beacon of light” that is now a “reflection” of our son.
This place so bomb!!!! From the staff to the environment. I love coming to therapy. It’s the highlight of my week.
