Families are complex systems that can quickly become entangled, confused, or in need of support.
Our Family Intensives can be individually crafted to meet the needs of any family system, no matter what the complications might be. Driven by our Clinical Director, Shea Barakatt, LCSW, these intimate sessions provide a safe place where families can discuss their concerns in an open, supportive environment.
Programming at Origins Counseling is designed to help not only people who have mental health issues but the entire family—from spouses to parents or caregivers to siblings and children—because everyone affected by a family crisis needs support, care and healing.
Our goal is to help you address current family dynamics and identify strategies that are “no longer working” to heal the system.
Our Family Intensives can help you identify and address problems such as:
- Substance Use disorders/ Co-Occurring disorders
- Failure to launch conflicts
Each Family is Different
We employ a range of modalities to help your family find balance. Over the course of your one-day or two-day intensive, our therapists will work to identify issues within your system, then tailor modalities to your unique needs.
No family system is the same, and our approach is always reflective of your unique experiences and needs.
Modalities utilized in the family intensives include interventions such as:
- Motivational interviewing
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
Through guided communication with our therapists, we help your family to open a conversation about the troubles you are facing and identify possible solutions. With each discussion, we gain increased awareness of how you and your loved ones approach conflict. We work alongside you to increase your knowledge about the interpersonal dynamics at plan between the members of your family.
Together, our therapists will help you explore:
- Boundaries – what they are and what they are not
- Communication styles
- Feelings identification
- Family Roles
- Conflict identification
- Generational behaviors
- Defensive actions
- Emotional Regulation
- Active listening skills
- Suggestions for further individual care
Will we have to do any work after the family Intensive?
Each family will have different outcomes and suggestions for continuing care after the intensive. These suggestions may include individual work, or work as a system, or couple. Positive outcomes are increased when all family members are enrolled in their own self-care work. However, some families may find that an intensive sets the tone for new understanding and they choose to travel their own path after an intensive.
How long is a Family Intensive? How much will it cost?
Most Intensives are done over a 6 hour period with small breaks and a break for lunch. Water, coffee, and small snacks will be provided throughout your time with us. Intensives can also be broken down into two 3 hour sessions or three 3 hour sessions. Prices vary depending on the number of people and the hours that they need.
