You can take advantages of a variety of services here at Mars & Venus, including those for family therapy. Parental and child relationships can be challenging and complicated, and the help of a professional; a specialist in mediating the problems and finding common ground, is essential.
It’s not a surprise that the teen years (and even earlier for younger children) can be especially hard to communicate effectively within the family. What with the pressures of school, social interactions, and the changes that they are going through, it would be a shock if there were no conflict at all. In the heat of everyday life, when there is so much to do, it is not always easy to come to agreements. Sometimes, the language of choice, either for you or your child, or both, is anger. It can certainly be frustrating, can’t it? You want to and need to set boundaries. They want more freedom. Who is right and who is wrong? It’s not as simple as that. Turn to our Hackensack family therapy for the necessary help. For one thing, our therapist is neutral, and has no bias toward either viewpoint. The goals are defined as resolving the conflicts that are making family life less than happy. In many instances, one of the parties or even all of the parties involved are engaging in behavior that they do not realize is contributing to the problems, and putting up obstacles and walls. Our Hackensack family therapy makes it a priority for everyone to be able to express themselves without it turning into hostility. There is, of course, love that lies beneath the negativity. By digging a little deeper, the love has a chance to come to the surface again.
The benefits of our Hackensack family therapy are many. Call our office and set up an appointment to come in.
