Downers Grove Family and Relationship Counseling

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.

The Benefits of Family and Relationship Counseling

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:

  • Improved communication. Communication issues are at the heart of most relationship issues. By learning how to identify your needs and express these needs better, as well as listen to the needs of others you care about, you can significantly improve the quality of your relationships.
  • Resolution and forgiveness. Often, relationship and family issues stem from problems that happened long ago that have never been resolved. By addressing the issue head-on, working through it, and offering forgiveness and getting closure, a relationship is often able to move forward in a more productive way.
  • Learning about yourself. Often, we become so wrapped up in our emotions that it’s hard to see whether or not how we’re acting is healthy and positive. By taking a step back, you can learn a lot about yourself, your personal insecurities, and how your personality and actions play a role in your relationship.
  • Improved bonding. Whether you are seeking therapy with a member of your family or a romantic partner, therapy that is successful often results in improved bonding and the strengthening of your relationship.

Our Therapists Are Here to Help

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.

To learn more about family and relationship counseling in Downers Grove and how therapy may serve you and your loved one(s), please call Life Insight directly today or use the form on our website to send us a message and tell us more about how we can be of service.

What Our Past Clients Have To Say

We Are Open For Business

What a week for our world. As everyone tries to adapt to a new sense of normal amidst an ever-changing landscape, we've all been asked to do things differently. And humans do not like change! We crave the familiar, the predictable, the known. One of the ways we are encouraging our community to stay healthy during this time is to keep as much routine and consistency as possible, including self-care and support.

We understand the anxiety and worries that are in the world right now, we also understand the importance of connection and care and healing. We are moving all of our appointments to Telehealth sessions as of Monday, March 23rd. While this may be a different way of doing things for some of you, it allows us to be a consistent source of support for our community.

Our practice has been using telehealth for over two years, and we have a HIPAA compliant platform in place that is really quite simple to use for our sessions. All of our therapists are able to walk you through getting used to your first telehealth session and not much will be different other than you'll show up online instead of at the offices.

In fact, we're still taking new clients during this time, so if you are feeling like you'd like to talk to someone or know of someone in need of extra support right now, let them know that we are here to help. You can call or text our offices at: 630-563-0044 or sign up online via the "Book Appointment Online" button on our website.
