Is family counseling right for my family?

Any family can benefit from family counseling with the Michelle Silver Lining Mental Health Counseling team, especially those experiencing yelling, fighting, anger management, and other common causes of conflict. Even if your family isn’t currently struggling, periodic family counseling can help prevent future problems.

What happens during family counseling?

During virtual family counseling sessions, your Michelle Silver Lining Mental Health Counseling provider calls you and your family during a scheduled appointment time. They ask questions about your lifestyle, relationships, mood, thoughts, emotions, and more to learn more about your family dynamic and how to best help.

During family counseling sessions, your specialist may use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), or other methods to help you and your family make positive changes in lifestyle habits and behavior patterns.

Michelle Silver Lining Mental Health Counseling also offers individualized counseling, couples and marriage counseling, child psychotherapy, and group counseling sessions based on your and your family’s needs. You might participate in individualized counseling in addition to family counseling to overcome an addiction or other personal challenges.

You may meet with your therapist weekly or as needed to alter thoughts, improve behaviors, and overcome conflict healthily. They tailor each treatment based on your family’s unique situation.
