Adult Family Therapy And Counseling Services

Overcome dysfunctional family dynamics with Ethos Wellness’ adult family therapy opportunities. We’ll help you pave the way to sustainable healing.

Understanding Family Dynamics

Family dynamics have a profound impact on our well-being. Our team at Ethos Wellness understands that they can be complicated, frustrating, and difficult to navigate on your own.

We recognize that, without the right support, dysfunctional family dynamics can lead to:

  • Increased Stress and Anxiety: Unpredictable conflicts, emotional manipulation, or neglect create a chronic stress response, impacting physical and mental health.
  • Low Self-Esteem and Self-Doubt: Constant criticism or neglect can lead to negative self-perception and difficulty trusting one’s judgment.
  • Difficulties with Trust and Intimacy: Lack of healthy emotional bonds within the family can make it challenging to build trusting and intimate relationships outside the family.
  • Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms: Dysfunctional families often model unhealthy coping mechanisms like substance abuse, isolation, or aggression, which individuals might adopt in other areas of life.
  • Poor Communication Skills: Difficulty expressing emotions, resolving conflict, or setting boundaries can stem from dysfunctional family dynamics and hinder healthy communication in other relationships.
  • Greater Risk of Mental Health Issues: Exposure to abuse, neglect, or chronic stress in dysfunctional families increases the risk of depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions.


We’re here to help families pave a path forward, guiding you through life’s challenges with compassion and expertise.

Many patients have discovered that our Family & Couple Therapy Services carry a transformative power that extends beyond what individual therapy programs can offer.. Almost 90% of people report an improvement in their emotional health after undergoing family therapy.

What Sets Ethos Wellness Apart

Ethos Wellness is a stand-out facility for those seeking family therapy. Here’s why:

Family-First Philosophy

At Ethos Wellness, our foundation is built upon a family-first philosophy. We understand that the family unit is a sacred and interconnected web of relationships. Our approach prioritizes the family, recognizing it as a unique and powerful force in the lives of each member of the unit. 

When families thrive, individuals flourish. Our therapeutic process is dedicated to nurturing the strength and resilience of the family unit.

Prioritizing the Family Unit in the Therapeutic Process

We believe that healing and growth happen most effectively when viewed through the lens of family dynamics. By prioritizing the family, we create a supportive environment that fosters understanding, empathy, and positive change for every member. 

Studies show that children and young adults who attend at least one family therapy session are more likely to stay in treatment.

Integrating Individual Needs Within the Context of the Family

While we emphasize the family as a whole, we also recognize the unique needs of each member within that unit. 

Our therapists skillfully integrate individual perspectives, aspirations, and challenges into the broader context of the family. This ensures a balanced and comprehensive approach to therapy.

A Multigenerational Perspective

We understand that families are influenced by the experiences and legacies of multiple generations. Our therapy takes a multigenerational approach, understanding the impact of family history on present dynamics. 

By exploring generational influences, we can unravel patterns, promote healing, and pave the way for a more connected future. By doing so, we empower families to break free from patterns that may no longer serve them.

Tailoring Therapy to Address Diverse Family Structures

Every family is unique and has its own blend of traditions, structures, and relationships. Our therapy is tailored to accommodate the diverse family structures that exist. 

Whether you are navigating traditional family units, blended families, or other configurations, our approach is flexible and inclusive.

What Is Adult Family Therapy, and How Can It Benefit My Family?

Adult family therapy is a specialized form of counseling that focuses on improving relationships and communication within family units. It can address various challenges, enhance understanding, and strengthen family bonds.

Family therapy can be beneficial in various situations, such as communication breakdowns, major life transitions, or conflicts within the family. If your family is facing challenges that impact your well-being or that of other family members, seeking therapy is a proactive step toward positive change.

The duration of therapy varies based on the unique needs and goals of each family. Some families may see positive changes in a few sessions, while others may choose longer-term therapy for ongoing support.
