Family Therapy & Counseling in CT & NY

Your son’s wellbeing is a family affair.

Causeway requires both client and family to be all in on this journey, especially when you live together in one home. That’s why Causeway Family Therapy engages you and your son to work together to improve your communication and move through conflict to cooperation.

Feeling Disconnected?

When a young man sets out to become his best self, he needs his family not just behind him, but beside him.

Conflict and communication issues within the family throw up barriers to a young man’s progress. Causeway requires both client and family to be all in on this journey, especially when you live together in one home. This is one of the most effective ways to ensure your son’s growth, development, and success in achieving his goals.

Engaging Your Family

Your son’s well being is a family affair. Our Causeway Family Therapists want to know, understand, and engage the entire family. 

Our team will work with you to bring family conflicts to light. Left unaddressed, these challenges can generate resentment and confusion. Part of this is making sure that you as parents hear your son’s needs and wants. Our experienced therapists will guide you as a group in establishing ground rules, working through past issues, and providing the clarity that is needed to reach resolution.

As we move through this consistent, open-ended process of discovery together, you’ll improve the quality of family communication, build positive family dynamics, and reduce the grievances you have with one another.

The Causeway Difference

Your son’s well being is dependent on your involvement and feedback. We use your input to develop goals and modify your young man’s program, so it serves him more effectively. We can’t say it enough: at Causeway, we work for your son, and the well-being of your family.

The Causeway team is not a group of clinicians hiding behind a veil of confidentiality. We’ll keep you as parents up to speed on what’s happening with your son—and so will your son, because we’ll all be together in one room. At Causeway, parents stay informed. At the same time, we cultivate your son’s ability to hold court—to find his voice. To communicate his needs to both you and the team.

Testimonials

“EXCELLENT. I wish there was an equivalent service for girls as I would have used Causeway for my daughter too if it had been available. There should be a Causeway in every town and State. Our kids are under so much pressure – they all could use a little positive reinforcement in life.”

“Causeway’s therapists understand their clients are are very relatable. The coaching aspect is hands-on and tailored to the client. My personal experience as a mother of a client has been wonderful. Not only is my son supported, but I feel supported as well.”

“I was nothing but impressed by the quality of the service CC provided my son and our family. David worked so well with my son and was able to reach him at his level and then was so helpful in giving me tips and incites into things I could do to help my son as well. I have nothing but great things to say about CC and David.”

You've got Questions, We've Got Answers.

Q: Do we have to participate in family therapy as part of the program here at Causeway?
A:

Family therapy is an integral part of your son’s journey. What this looks like will vary based on your needs as parents and your son’s needs. Typically, we ask that parents engage with one of our family therapists twice during the first 4 weeks of your son’s program to ensure we are all on the same page. At this point, you and your family therapist will determine if more sessions are needed and at what frequency.

Q: How are Family Meetings different from Family Therapy?
A:

Family Therapy uses family systems theory to apply the principles of human behavior to assist you and your son in in coming together to achieve a variety of personal and family-centered goals. At Causeway a single licensed, trained professional facilitates Family Therapy on a regularly occurring basis. The frequency of visits is determined by the expertise of the professional.

Family Meetings, on the other hand, are unique to Causeway. They are a required part of our process for all clients. We hold Family Meetings on a once-per-month basis to review your son’s program, evaluate goals and objectives, modify session frequency and service types, and get consensus on the go-forward plan for your son’s treatment.
