You cannot build a strong family until you can effectively work with all members of that family. Our Overland Park relationship counselors are skilled in healing conflict in every family relationship. By removing the barriers to unity, all family members can find joy in their relationships.
Family Counseling is About Strengthening Families
The very phrase “family counseling” often conjures up images of bickering family members complaining to a therapist. In reality, family counseling is less about airing your “dirty laundry” and more about healing relationships that may have been damaged by addiction, domestic violence, divorce, death, substance abuse, or military service.
Drug Addiction and Substance Abuse Therapy for Adults and Children
Having an addiction to drugs, alcohol, pornography, or sex affects not only the addict but also their family members. That is why it is vital that every member of the family receive the help and support they need. We offer drug addiction and substance abuse therapies to addicts and their loved ones to maximize the likelihood of long-term recovery.
While ADHD seems like an individual problem, it can affect every member of a family. Our whole-family approach has helped parents of children with ADHD learn how to manage behavior at home and set children up for success at school.
If you struggle with depression or other mental health conditions, you are not alone but your condition is affecting your family more than you realize. Let us help you heal from depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues while giving your family tools to support you.
Domestic Violence Services
Whether you are in a currently violent situation or have been involved in domestic violence in the past, the trauma of violence in your home can bleed into your relationships with people other than your abuser. Our counselors can give you tools to not only survive but thrive after domestic violence.
Assimilating Blended Families
Successfully combining two families into one without the help of qualified professional counselors is difficult. Doing it while nurturing new relationships is nearly impossible. That is why we recommend family counseling for all blended families whether they are newly formed, dealing with new issues, or have unresolved conflict from the past.
Military Mental Health Center
Servicemembers have unique mental health needs that often carry over into their family relationships. Unresolved trauma, PTSD or anger, or excessive separations from a deployment can take their toll on both the service member and their loved ones. Our counselors are adept at helping military personnel improve their mental health, thereby improving their relationships.
Coping with Grief After Death or Divorce
Losing a loved one after death or seeing the death of a relationship due to divorce is traumatic. The grieving process is different for everyone but can impact every other relationship a person has. At Armstrong Family Counseling, we can help you process grief after death or divorce, improve your relationships with other family members, and prepare for new relationships in your life.
