Family therapy is a very broad name for therapy involving many possible situations. Generally, family therapy is meant to help families communicate better and learn to work together through conflicts.
Some people view counseling of any kind as a sign of weakness. They think it’s not for them, and that attending family counseling is tantamount to admitting that they’ve failed as a parent. That’s certainly not true, and many families who are now happy didn’t always start that way. It’s important for everyone to realize that seeing a family therapist is a perfect opportunity to grow.
If your family is suffering through a trial where members are feeling stress, grief, anger, guilt, depression, or any number of feelings that are causing a loss in mental wellness; family therapy could be a blessing to them. Even if your family is just seeking better communication, Family Therapy can help.
I look forward to each appointment and know that I will be treated with the utmost care, respect, and professionalism. I highly recommend this facility to others.
I've seen a dramatic change in my life since beginning my treatment at Integrated Counseling, and I will be forever grateful for my time there.
I went to integrated counseling for two years for eating disorder recovery. Every week, I loved meeting with my counselor to celebrate my successes and work through the barriers that come with mental health challenges. My counselor thoroughly explained the reasons behind eating disorder behaviors, showed empathy with hard topics, and helped me overcome Issues I had dealt with for years. I looked forward to each session. I am in a healthier state of mind and in a better place in life because of the thoughtfulness, kindness, and professionalism that my counselor showed me
I am a 56 year old woman who has struggled with disordered eating for the past 42 years of my life. It wasn’t until I found my counselor with Integrated Counseling, that I started to reverse all the ill effects of dieting, issues around controlling all my food and letting go of my fat phobia. The program that my counselor guided me through was an awesome mix of self compassion, intuitive eating and movement, being present in all aspects of life and stopping judgement towards myself and others. I am convinced that I would not be nearly as far along in my healing process were it not for my counselor. She was gentle yet firm, patient and incredibly understanding. I am left with all the tools I need to proceed through life on my continued recovery journey.
As a young woman who has struggled with body image and a relationship with food for most of my life, receiving counseling for my eating disorder was the only way I could finally see light at the end of my dark tunnel. My anorexia had consumed me to a point where food, exercise, and the way I perceived my body controlled my thoughts and feelings every hour of the day. It wasn't until I sought out counseling and had a desire to recover that I am finally healing. These past three years receiving professional help have truly saved my life. I am now the healthiest I have ever been. Without a shadow of a doubt, I would encourage any person who is struggling with an eating disorder to not be afraid to reach out and trust that you can finally learn to love yourself.

I had Annie as my therapist and she’s one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. She’s great at listening to what I need and making sure I’m comfortable no matter what. I love her and it’s because of her I know how to communicate and trust my therapists! Thank you!
This place changed my life. I haven’t been there in about 4 years now, but I was reflecting over my experience and thought they deserved a good review. I originally went to see Luke back in 2017 to deal with my depression. After visiting with him for a few months we came to the conclusion that I was dealing with undiagnosed ADHD. My life has significantly improved because of Luke and my diagnosis. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I've gone to many Counselor places, but this seems to be the one. Excellent Service! By both the therapists and the staff! Very friendly and professional! The atmosphere is great as well! They don't take Medicaid sadly, but they have multiple kinds of professionals and services to fit your need! They also have an excellent website. They are good at communicating to you and each other, so that nothing goes wrong.
I have loved my time with Integrated Counseling and Wellness. The staff made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. My therapist, Liz, was incredible. You can tell she is professionally trained, well qualified, and truly cares for her patients. I've seen a dramatic change in my life since beginning my treatment at Integrated Counseling, and I will be forever grateful for my time there.
I have had nothing but a positive experience in my time receiving counseling at Integrated Counseling and Wellness. The staff is incredibly friendly and professional and the environment is conducive to peace and calm. I have made and continue to make great strides in improving my mental health thanks to my time here.
LouAnn Stermer is an excellent counselor who cares deeply about her clients. In the past, I worked with her at 2 different times over several years. She always acted in a professional manner and with a great deal of integrity. Integrated Counseling is very lucky to have her.
Luke Einerson is amazing! I always had the hardest time falling asleep, and with one visit, Luke made the perfect herbal mixture that has made all the difference! He was very knowledgeable and caring! Highly recommend him if you are looking for a more natural Herbal alternative!
I have witnessed Luke's work with clients and can attest to his passion, compassion, and skill at delivering client-specific care. Luke really cares about the people he works with, and he is talented at seeing their potential to creatively help them realize that for themselves.
Luke is an Executive Coach with a solid entrepreneurial experience and deep understanding of the healthcare ecosystem. This combined with his strong listening skills and “out of the box” thinking approach, brings a unique edge to his coaching practice.
I have experienced incredible growth with the help of my counselor here. Best counseling I have ever had!
What Are the Benefits of Family Therapy?
It gets you through the tough times
Every family has problems, and most don’t deem it necessary to seek out a family counselor. But when the communication inside the home has broken down, it’s important to seek help from someone outside the home. The therapist is someone who has no vested interest beyond simply helping each member of the family learn to get along with each other better.
It tells people that it’s okay to talk
When a family goes through family counseling, they learn that it’s okay to talk to each other. Even if they don’t agree with what the other family member is saying, they know that it’s important to bring problems to light. If a teenager realizes that it’s okay to talk about problems, it will help them when from the time they’re 16 years old to 86 years old and every year in between. This is true whether they’re dealing with their parents or with their future spouse and their children.
It ensures a future
Ignoring the need for family counseling today could lead to there being no family tomorrow. If the problems aren’t dealt with soon, the family could suffer irreparable damage. Sons and daughters become estranged, parents are abandoned, and all future relationships can be in jeopardy.
Seeking family counseling is a great way to keep families together and help each individual member at the same time. Call to schedule an appointment today.
