While family counseling services in Los Angeles have been used to help many Southern California families cope with conflict and mental health issues, some individuals, because of cost, stigmatization, misinformation, or other reasons, may choose not to find a family therapist.

What Happens in a Typical Family Therapy Session?

The primary goals of family therapy are to help families in treatment identify the underlying reasons for the issues they are facing and develop the skills necessary to cope with or resolve these issues as a cohesive family unit. As each family has its own unique members, issues, and behavior patterns, there is no preset approach that is always adopted by family therapists. In Los Angeles and other leading cities in the United States, family counselors employ specific family therapy interventions for each group in treatment.

An experienced family therapist will recognize the importance of remaining neutral during family counseling. Services and family therapy activities are therefore provided in a setting that allows each member of the family feel safe and secure, especially when discussing painful or difficult topics.

The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) says that family therapists in Los Angeles should be trained to treat issues such as:

Who Can Benefit from Family Therapy?

Though family counseling services are often applied to families, other people may benefit from the expertise of a trained family therapist. In Los Angeles, family therapists may work with intimate partners, individuals, organizations, communities, as well as in collaboration with other health care professionals.
