Couples Therapy in Delray Beach
Sometimes individual or group therapy can lead to the discovery of issues with family and friends that need to be dealt with, or maybe you simply want to improve your understanding of the people in your life. Couples therapy and family therapy are two of the services offered at Raul J. Rodriguez, MD’s Delray Beach psychiatry and therapy practice. Therapy is a faster approach to changing the quality of your relationships, rather than attempting to work out issues without professional guidance. Family and friends have a powerful impact on our overall mental health, and when the family unit starts to fall apart, everyone suffers. Dr. Rodriguez and our experienced team of therapists help each member of the family identify the ways that they can contribute to positive resolutions, understand their role in the situation, and get over any past issues or resentments. Using different therapeutic approaches, our team helps families strengthen and improve their communication skills and bonds with one another.
The challenges that families with issues like addiction or mental illness face are difficult and unique. We have specialized staff with experience in dealing with family addiction counseling as well as with other mental health disorders. By using various therapy methods, pain within the family system can be eased by the creation of sincere dialogue, facilitated by a trained mediator. Going through therapy as a couple or as a family brings the entire unit closer together, by teaching you how to interact with one other while still considering each other’s feelings. Family therapy is a very important part of resolving family tensions and building a support network for the loved one suffering from addiction or mental illness. The quality of family involvement and support contributes significantly to success and recovery. During crisis intervention, as well as throughout the entire recovery process, members of our experienced treatment team will be available to provide guidance and support. We offer many resources and treatments, including child education, adolescent coaching, support groups and intensive therapy, to help each member of the family unit face their unique challenges with strength and patience. By addressing every member, we ensure a well-rounded family recovery. When everyone is working towards the same goal, understanding and patience make the process easier, and the main way to achieve that is a form of therapy.
