Frequently Asked Questions
Is Therapy Right for My Family?
Family therapy can help any family improve communication issues, build trust, and resolve disputes or trauma. However, it will likely be more effective if the members of your family remain open-minded and optimistic about the process.
Finding a therapist who is a strong match for your family is also vital. That’s why we take care to match your family with a therapist whose communication style, experience, and treatment modalities are a strong fit for you and your loved ones.
How Much Does Family Therapy Cost?
Our family therapy services cost $125–$200 per session, depending on your therapist and the methods they use. You’ll also need to complete an initial intake and assessment so we can match you with a therapist who fits your family’s dynamic and needs. The cost for this initial assessment is $150.
How Long Does Family Therapy Take?
The length of time each family spends in therapy depends on the issues they’re facing, the strategy we create for them, and the pace at which they’re able to work through each of the steps involved. However, it’s not uncommon for families to spend 15 to 20 sessions with one of our therapists.
What Methods Does Therapy Utah Use for Family Therapy?
Our family therapists may use any of the following methods:
- IFS (Internal Family Systems): this method is based on the idea that each individual in a family contains sub-personalities that link them to the other members, and that getting to know them better can improve the family dynamic as a whole.
- Play Therapy: particularly useful for families with children, this method promotes play as a tool for helping people express or communicate their emotions.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): by identifying cognitive distortions and creating strategies to mitigate their influence, this method can help improve the ways family members communicate and relate to one another.
What Are the Benefits of Family Therapy?
Family therapy can help you and your loved ones:
- Improve communication and reduce tension or resentment
- Set clear, healthy boundaries
- Solve problems more effectively
- Express feelings more easily
- Resolve conflicts and manage anger
- Increase empathy for each other
… and more. In many cases, families find that the benefits of their work with us extend beyond achieving the specific goals we help them set at the beginning of our work together.
