Family history in family therapy and beyond
Through my work as a psychotherapist and family therapist, I’ve learned that understanding family histories and identifying family patterns can help us understand why we find ourselves in repeated situations. This is vital in both family therapy–where a family unit is in the therapy office, as well as in individual therapy. Ever wonder why you seem to be in the same situation over and over again? Are you in an emotionally reactive place? Curious about why you have strained relationships? Our family histories can provide essential context to our experiences, relationships and overall health.
