FAMILY COUNSELING IN ATLANTA
Feel stressed every time you think about going home to your family, or taking a call from a parent?
Wish your family was normal? You love your family, but you know that if things don’t change you’ll continue to grow apart or isolate and you’ll never reach the genuine bond you wish you had.
One of the things I encourage clients to consider is whether their family issues are creating problems related to safety, peace, communication, or connectedness.
Many people desire to have happy families, and often times life gets messy which gets in the way of that. Issues in life can create problems with getting along with family members, and sometimes the health of your relationships at home can deteriorate without you realizing this is occurring.
As Atlanta counselors, we can assist you with identifying issues with family communication and dynamics. We can work to help you find healthy ways to communicate and interact that build the family rather than tear it down.
