Helping Central Arkansas Families Grow Together
If you’re looking for family therapy for Little Rock and all of Central Arkansas, Compass Family Counseling is the place to come. Our knowledgeable therapists are no strangers to working with clients in a family therapy setting. Family therapy is designed to build better relationships and improve understanding and compassion. Each individual within the family interacts with and impacts the lives of every other person in the family. The same is also true as the family, as a whole, impacts each person individually. By examining the influences of family, an individual and the family unit learn to better interact, communicate, and create stable, lasting bonds. Dr. Carl Whitaker once said, "There are no individuals in the world, only fragments of families." Our therapists approach family therapy with the goal of healing fractures, improving compassion and empathy, and creating stable family units where all individuals feel safe and vital. Give us a call to schedule your first session.

What to Expect During Family Therapy
Like our sessions for individuals and couples, family therapy with our team is dynamic. That means our counselors are always assessing the situation and working with your family to adjust therapy plans and goals to ensure your time with us is valuable. During family therapy sessions, we may sit down with every member of the family, or certain groupings of family members may need to meet for sessions more frequently with other members of the family visiting periodically. We’ll work through the logistics during your intake sessions, and we can always adjust our plan as situations change. Family therapy may be helpful with just a few sessions, but more often, it is good to anticipate at least 8-12 sessions with an expectation that you may need to continue. In some cases, family therapy uncovers concerns that are more intense and require a longer duration in therapy.
