ANSWER: Overcoming Together!
You would see me roughly 1 hour per week. What about the other 167 hours every week?
I feel we must all work together and counsel together, because after all, you're going to have to Do Life Together.
If you're here to stop the Dysfunction, Learn to Communicate better, Cope better, and How To Do Life Together better, you need to be Together during the Counseling process.
A parent needs to know how to help their child.
I like to keep families together during sessions because you HAVE to learn to Communicate with each other!!!
What good will it do if you are alone with me, telling me everything, and then your child is alone with me telling me everything? With privacy laws, I can't disclose what is told to me in private.
So what good does that do for you as a parent to not know what your child is thinking and feeling?
You are the parent- you have to help them 24/7, not just me 1 hour a week.
There may be times in the course of family counseling that I will split each of you apart, so that you can feel comfortable in bearing your heart, and thoughts and feelings, that you would not otherwise be comfortable disclosing in front of the other family members. This is especially true for children and teenagers, but at the end of the day we all have to have full disclosure, because families have to bear one another's burdens to be able to Do Life together. Parents have to learn how to specifically help their children, what they need, and must know how they are feeling.
I do not meet with families together for an intake, and then separate vulnerable children from their parents on subsequent visits.
I don't feel that is appropriate or responsible counseling.
