Helping you find wholeness...
2345 University Ave, Bronx, New York 10468
When there are difficulties in our family, they tend to also affect other areas of our lives. With everyone participating (or just the couple if that is the prime area of the situation), it is possible to move to better ways of working together as a family. When this is done, you will find that your family again becomes the rock on which everything is built, allowing you to experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher will guide your family as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

I work with parents and family members of children with developmental delays. It is hard enough to raise a child in this day and age. The stress and conflict associated with caring for a child with special needs can be devastating and overwhelming if you do not have the support and tools you need. Know that you are not alone. One in five children are diagnosed with ASD and it seems that almost everyone has a family member or friend touched by special needs issues. I am here to help whether it be working through feelings, venting, managing difficult issues or behaviors with your children or navigating the difficult systems that are in place to get them the services they need.

My training in Family Counseling brings the whole family together in one room to discuss, argue, agree and disagree with the benefit of a trained moderator -the therapist-whose sees the unit as a whole as well as all the different moving parts. My goal is to help you communicate, identify the sources of both love and irritation and hopefully help each of the members work as unified whole while maintaining individual identities. I work with "families" of all genders and types, as well as traditional families.

Working with families is a special experience because each family has their own unique characteristics and relationships. Oftentimes, issues in families relate to communication patterns, roles and expectations, ways of expressing affection, appreciation, frustration and anger. Stress of life circumstances often intrude on family relationships including work, finances, separation or divorce, school, child and adolescent development and the internet! Family therapy is often short term so that a series of sessions may prove fruitful in improving life at home.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist for over 25 years with 2 PhDs and extensive training, I have helped distraught couples, sibs who haven’t talked for years, parents with overwhelming child problems, friends on the outs, difficult work relations, and extended feuding families. I know how frustrating it is to struggle with the many intricacies involved in keeping important relationships alive and well. There are multiple approaches to family therapy. To be trained in these different approaches and to know when to use which intervention or combination of interventions demands expertise. I am fortunate in having been able to make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients wi

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.

Family therapy is a safe place to learn healthy patterns of behavior. You will learn how to effectively and lovingly communicate, provide true emotional support and respect, and create an environment that nurtures the success of all family members. An emphasis is placed on collaboratively building a new or different family life, as well as collectively establishing goals. A component to family therapy may be parenting issues, which significantly challenge the individual and the couple. You learn parenting skills from your family of origin and repeat them, regardless of how healthful or toxic they are. Family therapy focuses on teaching the skills needed to confidently work as a team
