Every family is completely unique, and that means that every family has its own specific set of challenges. These can be challenges between siblings, challenges between parents and children, challenges within the entire family unit, and more. The most important thing to remember when dealing with family issues is that at the end of the day, you all want the same thing; to be a happy, functional, and communicative family.
At The International Center for the Attainment of Love and Joy, Laurie Grengs focuses on helping promote growth within families through counseling that helps everyone talk through their individual and group challenges. If you’re looking for a Coon Rapids, Blaine, Anoka or Andover, MN family therapist, look no further. Laurie can tackle a range of family struggles, from behavioral issues to managing grief.
Family Problems Caused by Financial Hardships
Just as in any marriage, financial challenges can place a heavy burden on children in a family. If your family is going through financial hardships, has suffered through difficult times in the past, or is expecting financial struggles in the near future, it can play a large part in creating bigger issues within the family. Laurie Grengs can help address financial concerns of everyone in the family and help mediate the concerns that grow out of financial hardship.
Confronting Substance Abuse
Substance abuse is often something that cannot be tackled alone. With the help of a family counselor, you can get help or help your family member get the help they need to heal completely and stand up against their substance abuse challenges using healthy, time-tested methods that will help with moving forward and finding new ways of facing adversity.
Addressing Behavioral Concerns
Behavioral concerns often have to do with children, and as an adolescent counselor and psychological evaluator, Laurie Grengs is well-equipped to handle all manner of behavioral problems by addressing them at the source.
Academic and Work Issues
For children and parents, work and school problems can often create the same negative effects in the home. Face these head-on by communicating openly with your family about your individual struggles.
Coming to Terms with Family Adjustments
Whether it be moving homes or schools, inviting someone new into your home and hearts, or otherwise, changing the family dynamic is never easy. But with good communication and being open about concerns and hopes, families can grow with the adjustments rather than battling them as they come.
Mental Health Concerns
Mental health is a difficult topic for everyone, but Laurie Grengs has expertise in providing psychological evaluations to those who may need them, and helping families work through the challenges of those with mental health issues.
Healthy Grieving and Accepting Illnesses
Grief is natural, and it is something that must be worked through, no matter the cause. If your family has suffered a loss, or there is illness in your family that has bred fear or grief, it should be addressed openly and in a healthy manner so that everyone can move forward, individually and as a family.
