When it feels like the issues in your family are too big for you to handle and aren't getting any better, it is probably time to consider family counseling.
Deciding to start family counseling can be helpful when the family's own resources for solving problems are not working. It can help families find better ways to manage their conflicts and struggles. The family therapist can help family members improve communication, learn better ways to resolve conflicts, and learn better coping skills to bring everyone closer.
In addition to the above, other things that family counselors can help with are:
Family illness, death and suicide
Grieving the loss of a loved one
A family member's mental illness
Substance abuse or addiction
Disagreements about money
Behavioral problems in children
Difficulties between siblings
Extended family problems
Conflict between parents and children
