Family Counseling

Are there tensions within your family?

Do you feel like you’re not being heard?

Are there significant underlying issues between your family members that need to be addressed?

Or are intergenerational differences making it hard to connect?

Even if you all grew up in the same household, you and your family members can be very different people. Large age gaps, natural differences in personalities, contrasting values or beliefs, and much more can lead to conflicts at home between loved ones.

And with even more young people continuing to live in their family home after they reach adulthood, more and more families (over 18% of the US population) are now living in “multi-generational” homes. In these families, people of very different ages and generations have to learn to co-exist.

Each of these challenges and living arrangements can result in disagreements, disengagement, and even serious conflict.

You can improve your relationships, creating authentic communication and respect to begin to heal past or current emotional wounds. You and each member of your family could feel validated, heard, and better understood.

So if these sound like you

– There is a lack of honest or respectful communication within the family

– You feel disconnected, angry, or upset about family members’ behaviors

– You or other family members feel isolated and alone

– There are feelings of judgement or dismissive acts

– You’d like each member to better understand others’ opinions and thoughts

– You’d love to strengthen family bonds and build self-esteem

– You each genuinely want to respectfully resolve conflict and improve your relationships

…Then family counseling may offer the ideal path. Whether aimed at addressing small issues or dealing with potentially relationship-breaking challenges, family therapy can help each person feel valued and connected to the rest of their family unit.

Family counseling also offers evidence-based, compassionate support when coping with changes to the family unit due to divorce, blending families, children leaving home, or death.

In our practice we provide a non-judgmental, supportive environment to meet your family’s needs. We combined evidence-based techniques and therapies to foster confidence, openness, and respect, and help your family work together to improve relationships with each other and themselves.

By encouraging honest, empathetic communication and implementing family friendly strategies that aid hearing, healing, and greater clarity, family counseling becomes an empowering process.

Chelsea Bogda, LPC

Child and adult psychotherapy As Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” We all have a story, and in today’s society, it can sometimes feel that no one understands or truly hears what we are trying to say. I believe therapy can offer a nonjudgmental and empathic environment for these stories to unfold.

Adult and adolescent therapy, trauma therapy, identity work In a world where mental health is often stigmatized, society can leave us feeling judged and misunderstood. Reaching out for help during a difficult time requires significant strength and courage. My passion as a therapist is to facilitate growth in clients, assisting them in accessing the strength they already possess within, while supporting them as they work towards personal growth in an empathic, nonjudgmental, and welcoming environment.
