Family / Marital

Family/Marital therapy is a specialized area of psychology that focuses on treating issues that occur within families or couples. Family therapy can be used to address a wide range of concerns, such as communication difficulties, behavioral issues, parenting challenges, and mental health issues. The goal of family therapy is to help family members understand each other better, improve communication and relationships, and find more effective ways to cope with challenges.

Marital therapy, also known as couples therapy, focuses specifically on couples who are experiencing challenges in their relationship. Marital therapy can be used to address issues such as communication difficulties, intimacy problems, infidelity, and conflict resolution. The goal of marital therapy is to help couples improve their relationship, work through challenges, and build a stronger, more satisfying partnership.

Family and marital therapists use a variety of techniques to help their clients, including talk therapy, behavioral therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. They may also use techniques such as role-playing, relaxation techniques, and homework assignments to help clients practice new skills and coping strategies.

Family and marital therapists may work in private practice, community mental health centers, hospitals, schools, and other settings. They may work with individuals, couples, or entire families, depending on the needs of their clients. Family and marital therapy may be provided in individual or group sessions, and sessions may be short-term or long-term depending on the needs of the clients.

One important aspect of family and marital therapy is the recognition that family and relationship issues often have multiple causes and are influenced by a range of factors, including genetics, environment, culture, and social norms. Therefore, therapists in this specialty often take a holistic approach to treatment, considering the complex interplay of factors that contribute to their clients' challenges. This may involve working closely with other mental health professionals, such as psychiatrists, social workers, and other therapists, to provide comprehensive care for clients.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
