Families are connected in many ways with genetics only being one of them. Attachment, connection and shared experiences matter the most.

how Cura can help your family

Your Cura therapist understands that when you are raised in a family that has healthy relationships that you will learn to have healthy relationships. Conversely, if you’re raised in a family that felt chaotic and disruptive, knowing how to maintain positive, healthy relationships can be an unknown.

When things go awry, then sometimes it’s hard to get things back on track. The kids aren’t kids anymore and their assertion of independence, though normal, make the family seem unbalanced. There is a loss of the bread winner of the family and now the surviving parent most return to work. One of the family members becomes ill and the relationships become strained. Or one of the kids has started experimenting with drugs. Now life feels so chaotic…what can you do?

Cura Therapists use a variety of therapeutic techniques and interventions to help you reorganize your family and create safety within the relationships. Each therapist is highly trained to evaluate your family needs, provide a safe environment for your exploration and give the gentle push that may be needed when it gets hard to move forward.

Cura therapists work diligently to encourage your strengths as a unit and fold in the strengths of each individual. Change can be scary, but with a Cura Therapist by your side, helping your family each step of the way.

Family Therapy

Cura Therapists use a variety of therapeutic techniques and interventions to help you reorganize your family and create safety within the relationships. Each therapist is highly trained to evaluate your family needs, provide a safe environment for your exploration and give the gentle push that may be needed when it gets hard to move forward.

Your Cura Therapist is trained in family systems which means s/he understands that the each person in the family has needs, desires and expectations that are sometimes unspoken but have to be met in order for each family member to be okay. Family can look so very different for everyone, the goal is the same though: to support people so that they have the opportunity to grow and function is a healthy way throughout their lives.

child/adolescent behavior problems

Peace and tranquility can, at times feel elusive. Life can take you on an unintended journey that at times doesn't feel safe or even important. Your security in who you are and the value you bring can have a parallel impact on any situation. In other words, your skills set at work that you worked so hard to master may not shine through if your biggest concern is if your boss likes you. The lack of confidence is what shines through rather than the pride in the learned skill set.

family dynamic changes

Divorce, loss of a parent, loss of a child can hit a family like a Mack truck. Chaos ensues because grief takes over and everyone is just trying to find the ground. Parents want what’s best for their children, that gets very difficult when you feel the rug has been pulled and your world is spinning. Your Cura therapist can help guide you as you mourn in a way that bonds the family versus divides the family.

healthy changes

Mental and physical health changes not only affect the identified person, but also those who love him/her. For some families, it’s surprising that some of the behaviors and habits of the other family members actually support the acting out or misbehavior of the identified client. When behaviors/routines that are beneficial to every family member are established, every one can flourish. Cura therapists will help families uncover the unwitting negative support and engage all parties to develop new strategies that support growth, attachment and connection.
