Family counseling near me in the Midwest
Family counseling or family therapy as it is known is essential to help us build close relationships with the people with whom we are closest and most comfortable, for whom we have the greatest love and deepest concern. We ought to be able to count on our family, share our thoughts and feelings with them, and be able to turn to them for support. Our family keeps us strong when we are weak, positive when we are in despair, and gives us the support we need. Family is our refuge. Our most important relationships are often with our parents, siblings, partner, and children.
Unfortunately, for many people, family is nothing like the ideal, and is instead associated with stress, anger, disconnection, misunderstanding, and unmet needs and expectations. Even for those whose families are generally close and supportive, things aren’t always perfect, and may even be very difficult, challenging, frustrating or painful.
We often develop coping strategies as children and then we continue these behaviors even though they no longer serve a good purpose. Families can trigger these behaviors whenever we mix with them. So even though you are no longer a toddler, you might still find yourself crying in order to make your point or other such behaviors.

Families – as those who are closest to us, and have known us so well for so long – often bring up the most intense emotions we experience, for better or worse. Everything from little irritations to buried resentments, from dramatic arguments to feelings of guilt, disappointment and suppressed anger. We may even feel that we have never been able to live up to the impossible ideals they hold for our lives.
How Ardent Center works with families
At the Ardent Counseling Center, we work with the entire family to ensure each person is heard.
We will then work to teach everyone in the family how to be supportive of one another, remind them of how to be present for each other, and encourage them to reach out openly when in need.
We will support you throughout the entire process and continually adjust our plan to help you become a happy and supportive family.
Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you and your family create meaningful change.
In the case of separated or divorce parents, we also offer co-parenting counseling for the sake of the children.
We look forward to working with you!
