The decision of when to seek family therapy can be a difficult one. Maybe it’s our preconceived ideas about what “counseling” is. Or maybe we’re afraid of what getting help may say about us or our parenting abilities. But in reality, family counseling is a healthy and effective way that all kinds of “normal” families use to get help. In fact, when you consider that roughly 1 in 5 have sought counseling at some time or another, it seems even more normal! If you are still wrestling with the question of whether or not to seek counseling, the answer is probably, “yes.” Something has led you this far. You owe it to yourself and to your family to at least make a phone call to learn what help and support are available.
