You struggle with your sibling. Your family wonders when you will get along, and enjoy each other’s company again.
Sibling therapy is a type of family therapy and relationship counseling that focuses on interpersonal dynamics and challenges that exist between siblings. You may desire to repair relationships with your siblings, healing from childhood wounds. You may desire for your own children to get along better, and you may be possibly concerned that it is not typical sibling rivalry. You may be experiencing some life transition challenges that have impacted the quality of your relationship with your sibling(s).
Oftentimes, the climate of your relationship impacts all members of the family, both immediate and distant. Our skilled counselors can help you navigate new ways of balancing healthy interactions, and find the fun and playful side of your family again. With sibling therapy, children and teens learn to implement changes made in counseling to their relationship, including the family as a whole. Ending the cycle of explosive, physically and verbally aggressive arguments and fighting with your kids helps improve the culture of your family, and provides new healthy interactions that bring peace and harmony to the family.
