Family Systems Therapy
Experience a Comfortable Space For Everyone
The family unit is one of the most valuable and influential aspects of an individual's life. Whether it’s experiences with your own family as a child, the connections that evolve over the years, or starting your own family and finally seeing through the eyes of your elders, the power and impact of family systems play a vital role for a lot of aspects of our development and mental schemas. We learn from our relationships and experiences with them, whether good or bad, and oftentimes, these experiences can influence our future mindsets and relationships as well.
But for as special as family is supposed to be, we are all still human, making human mistakes and simply trying to find a place in the group systems and communities that make up our lives, including our family system. The family system has a variety of complexities, with nuanced experiences and relationships from each different member of the family, so living together or being together harmoniously and lovingly can be much easier said than done, especially as relationships and personalities can change over time. If you are concerned about certain issues in your family system dynamic, or simply want to improve your current family system dynamic, family therapy services could offer the space and support you need. At Life Skills Awareness in Hesperia, we are proud to serve individuals and families all over the southern California area with quality therapy services, including valuable support for family systems therapy.

Solidify your family unit, with family system therapy from Life Skills Awareness
Family Therapy Services
Family dynamics are complex, with each member’s unique needs, perspectives, and opinions — but ultimately, each family is seen as a whole and is a makeup of each member. Family systems therapy is a form of psychotherapy and can be used to help uncover the root of certain issues in regards to how one grew up (or how one raised their children), the relationships they held within their family unit, and how those relationships and issues have evolved over time. With various relationships within a family, there are bound to be disagreements, but through family therapy sessions, you can trust that issues will be resolved in a progressive way that achieves understanding and acceptance.
At Life Skills Awareness, our therapists understand that each family and each member
within the family is unique, and will come to us with their own perspective, struggles, and challenges. Whether you’re meeting with your therapist individually, with a sibling, parents, or the whole family, we will listen to each person's perspective in order to objectively take a look at what each person believes is wrong. Together, our therapists can help you and your family member(s) determine what needs to change within your dynamic, and what the process of resolving the issue may look like.
If you are seeking us out as an individual, we will look to have a conversation about what life was like growing up within your family system, the relationships that you formed, and what those relationships look like currently. If you are struggling with a certain area of
your life, we can look for answers through these relationships as well. We can also offer marriage counseling through the lens of the family system, unearthing issues and working together to find a resolution for each person, the relationship as a whole, and how that relationship exists in the family system. Facing conflict head-on can be emotionally challenging, but you can be confident that Life Skills Awareness will be with you throughout the journey. When you and your family approach therapy with an open mind and a positive outlook, we’re confident that your relationship will be stronger than ever.

How Can Family Systems Therapy Help?
Achieves an understanding of how your family functions.
If everyone in your family unit isn’t on the same page, how are you going to be able to effectively communicate with each other? We can help you understand the ins and outs of how your family functions so that you can operate more efficiently and understand every member on a deeper level.
Families learn how to work together to solve problems.
With mental health therapy from Life Skills Awareness, you can learn the skills to approach any situation with your family as a team. You don’t need to face every problem in your life alone — your family has your back. We can teach you how to embrace and accept help and change with our therapy services.
Teaches techniques in order to manage conflict.
Conflict management can be difficult in any circumstances. Whether it is a relationship with your family or one that is more external, it isn’t always easy to admit fault and change your ways, or be honest with someone about how their actions are affecting you. Family Systems Therapy will help you breach that barrier.
Individual members learn how to help strengthen the family as a whole.
Every individual in a family unit plays an important role when it comes to the smooth functioning of the entire relationship. But, it isn’t always easy to identify what position you are supposed to be in within your family. Our therapists will help you discern what exactly your role is and how you can go about fulfilling it to the best of your abilities.
Family members will understand how to take responsibility for their own actions.
It is hard, sometimes, to take responsibility for your actions and the impact that they may have on others. With family therapy, our mental health team will guide you towards a better understanding of why it is important to own up to your actions. With this knowledge, you can better understand yourself and your relationship with those around you.
An individual approach is an option
Some people aren’t good at bringing up personal issues with members of their family. We offer support for those that want to seek mental health treatment as a group or on their own. If you are able to be happy with yourself, you’ll be able to bring that spark of joy back into your home.
