What Is a Family Therapist?

Family therapists and family counselors in Long Beach, CA are trained to educate family members about the problems they face. Common concerns include sibling conflict, adoption transitions, and communication issues. In some cases, one family member’s experience with addiction or mental health may be affecting the family as a whole. Mental health issues often begin in childhood: Half of all lifetime mental health conditions begin by age 14.

Family therapy sessions often take 50 to 60 minutes. Most counseling sessions are done with all members present, but an individual can speak with a family counselor one-on-one as needed. A treatment regimen generally lasts around 12 sessions, though a family may need more or fewer depending on their situation.

Family therapists can help families develop skills for resolving or managing their issues. Family therapists in Long Beach are trained to focus on the well-being of the entire family; they are not there to take sides. Family counseling can help families communicate openly and honestly about issues without judgment.
