Treatment Options

Understanding Marriage and Family Therapy

Marriage and family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that solves problems by understanding and improving how family members interact. Provided by a qualified marriage and family therapist, this therapy’s private practice rests on the belief that issues must be treated in their relational context and that the family is a unique social system with its patterns and rules.

Key Areas Addressed in Therapy Include:

  • Communication problems
  • Marital and couple conflict, including couples therapy and divorce counseling
  • Parent-child conflicts
  • Problems with family and emotional boundaries
  • Issues with blended families
  • Mental health issues within the family, such as depression, anxiety, or chronic illness

We work with most major insurance carriers.

Centric Behavioral Health facilities work with most major health insurance carriers in order to provide effective, accessible treatment options for substance abuse and mental health.

Why Marriage and Family Counseling Matters

Effective therapy sessions can significantly improve relationships in ways that lead to:

Enhanced Communication:
Family members learn to communicate effectively, express their feelings appropriately, and be more receptive to each other.

Resolved Conflicts:
Therapy provides tools and techniques for resolving conflicts, understanding and managing family dynamics, and handling intense emotions.

Stronger Relationships:
Families and couples understand each other’s needs and work on previous issues with understanding and mutual respect.

Better Family Life:
Effective therapy can greatly improve various aspects of family life, such as family relationships, partner relationships, and children’s behavior and performance in school.

Centric Behavioral Health's Approach to Therapy

  1. Collaboration in Treatment Planning:
    At Centric Behavioral Health, we initiate our clinical practice by doing a comprehensive assessment to learn about families’ or couples’ unique challenges and needs. Based on this, we collaborate with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that may include family counseling. This method aims to address psychological, behavioral, and emotional issues through various approaches, such as structural therapy, enhancing the overall family dynamics.

  2. Communication Skills Training:
    Practical communication skills are imparted to family members as an integral part of our therapy, which includes family counseling, to foster better understanding and empathy toward one another. This is a critical skill for developing and sustaining healthy relationships within the family unit.

  3. Conflict Resolution Techniques:
    We arm families and couples with ways to manage and handle conflicts and disagreements constructively without escalation.

  4. Emotional Support and Processing:
    We offer a supportive environment where family members can verbalize and process their emotional expression, which is necessary for healing and understanding the family system.

  5. Integration of Individual and Family Goals:
    We ensure that therapy focuses on the family’s individual needs and goals, considering personal well-being is essential for professional growth and healthy relationships.
