Minneapolis, MN Autism Family Counseling
Partnering With Your Family
Therapy can help you address family relationships, your child with autism and your own emotions. Topics we frequently cover in therapy with extended family and specifically parents include:
- Overcoming stress
- Grief & Loss
- Caregiver burden
- Helping your child transition to adulthood
- Behavior challenges and effective strategies
Sessions can also include resources and topics such as school options, community-based services, and autism specific treatment.
At times, therapy may be beneficial for your other children so that they can feel good about themselves, their role in the family and their relationship with their brother or sister. Therapy can help address feelings related to isolation, embarrassment or loneliness. Our sessions with siblings can increase understanding, tolerance and ultimately, acceptance.
Autism can have an impact on your relationship as a couple. Whether your spouse or child is living with autism, therapy can help strengthen your relationship and offer strategies and tools to improve communication, understanding and family dynamics.
