While there is often a perception that a family or a relationship should exist without conflict, this is unrealistic – even the happiest of families and couples suffer discord and issues that must be resolved. Resolving these issues in a way that is healthy is important; when issues are not resolved in a way that is healthy, problems can burgeon, often persisting for years and causing long-term damage to relationships. At Life Insight, we offer Downers Grove family and relationship counseling that is designed to help parties communicate and resolve problems in a way that is effective and productive.
A family can benefit from counseling when the family has experienced a traumatic event; when a member of the family is suffering from a psychological, physical, or substance abuse issue; or simply when there are discord and communication problems within the family. Couples can benefit from relationship counseling when there is a large amount of contention and fighting in the relationship, when they are planning for a life change together (i.e., moving in together, getting married, having a baby), or when there is a specific issue that needs to be resolved, such as adultery. There are many benefits of relationship and family counseling, including:
At Life Insight, our therapists are not here to “take sides” or play favorites during therapy; instead, it is our role to facilitate healthy conversations between parties, help each party to identify negative thinking patterns and beliefs that may be contributing to problems, and provide some effective resolutions for moving forward and creating more trust in the relationship/family. We know that talking to a third-party therapist can feel invasive; this is your private life. We know how sensitive these matters are and always approach conversations appropriately.
