How Can Family Therapy Help My Family?


It's never been more challenging to raise a family. With the demands of social media and technology, a global pandemic, and a shifting political and economic landscape, family life can feel strained and difficult. Additionally, all parents bring with them their own family history and life experiences that affect their ability to parent and engage in a family system.

Family therapy can help you and  everyone  in your household take  responsibility, develop greater compassion, and find better ways to communicate. Your therapist will consider your family a system. Everyone in the system plays their role, and has been developing their role over time, maybe for many years. Your therapist will work with the family to help modify roles that are painful or destructive, and create a healthier system overall.

Your therapist may meet with members individually at times to better understand their experience within the family system. She may also suggest you practice between sessions or practice new skills in session. She will take the time to really understand the unique needs of your family, as all systems are different. Goals for therapy can include: better communication, more compassion, better school performance, addressing addictions, improved behavior, improved parenting, working through a divorce or separation,  decreased conflict, and more.

In-Home Counseling

We know you are are busy, and your kids are probably busy too! Our therapist will come to your home and work with your family in your natural environment.

This gives your therapist a chance to work in depth with your family and help you set up a successful home environment. 

We also offer family therapy via video and in our office in Silverthorne!

At Grit Therapy, we understand the many unique challenges that  you and your family face in a mountain community. Work with someone who  understands  your needs.
