Family & Parent Coaching

Is your family going through a difficult time? 

If so, it’s very common. Every family is a truly unique ecosystem, and issues affecting one member of a family can reverberate throughout the whole family unit. 

It can be hard to let go of the idea that your family is somehow different, and that what you’ve always done will work forever. But the truth is, just about every family can benefit from family coaching when problems arise. 

With your family at the epicenter of healing, encouraging participation and re-discovering the natural and unbreakable connection between loved ones, —  you’re creating a secure foundation to break chains of generational hurt.

For example, family coaching can provide clarity, healing, and improved or restored communication when your family is navigating:

  • The grief that comes with loss
  • A family member’s substance abuse
  • Issues between parents, or the trauma of a divorce
  • A teenager’s behavior issues 
  • Sibling conflict
  • And much more

How does family coaching help?

As a member of your family you’re right in the  middle of the conflict and other difficulties — and family coaching provides an invaluable outside perspective. 

It can transform your family’s communication as it provides a safe space for dialogue, helping family members finally understand each other’s perspectives. 

You’ll find that once you’re feeling more connected, resolving disputes becomes much easier. 

Schedule your complimentary session to learn more about the customized family coaching or parent coaching session options to fit your needs. 

During the family coaching sessions, each family member learns to communicate more effectively and de-escalate arguments to make sure everyone feels respected and heard. We’ll also apply techniques to work through parenting issues like conflicting parenting styles, rule enforcement, remaining consistent with your child once the rules are established, and much more.

Family Coaching for Substance Abuse & Addiction Issues

Because the goal of family coaching is to improve relationships through effective communication and conflict resolution, it’s often a powerful complement to individual addiction treatment. 

When family members do their own work to grow and learn, the family member in treatment benefits too. As the family learns how to hold healthy boundaries and avoid enabling the member’s unhealthy habits — which is often happening unintentionally — the family member with addiction issues becomes less prone to addictive behaviors and dysfunction.

No matter what issues your family is facing, family coaching sessions involve all members of the family and can heal emotional wounds in a short period of time.
