Capital Counseling Your Lifeline to Better Mental Health
650 Warren St, Albany, New York 12208
Family therapy is a form of counseling that views problems as an expression of patterns of behavior that exist within the inter-relations of family members. Rather than attributing the problem behavior to an individual member, the entire family system is taken into account. Capital Counseling works with families to understand how undesired behaviors function within the family system, and to identify changes in behavior among several or all family members that eliminate the targeted behavior. Family therapy can be helpful in preventing any one individual from being labeled as “the problem” as it focuses on the social context of the family out of which the behavior develops.

Where moms self-abnegate and children are wrong,family counselling helps reduce tension. Casting or assuaging wrongful blame rerely helps; it's considered much more beneficial to access restitution via admission of guilt by the offender. It takes a big person. to admit he was wrong!!!! Confession, affidavit, apology, rescinsion, abdication, exhonneration, invalidation, and denial often work. Where denial can be seen as a cop-out - particularly when there is a loss of life, denial o culpability where children cast blamesgo the mother an be iewed as good.

As a family therapist, I evaluate functioning within a client’s systems of interaction: the family, school, work and community environments. I will often invite family members into the room to nurture change and development with the goal of improving relationships. My objective is to influence conversations in a way that accentuates the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider system to initiate change and ultimately improve functioning.

Families quite often are going through various changes simultaneously, some more impacting than others. Babies are born, family members get married and may bring new families with them, siblings move away, and parents get older. I like to work with families and support them as they navigate and manage these changes, and continue to redefine their relationships with one another.

I use the belief that our family relationships determine to a significant extent our ability to form healthy relationships. We each carry ways that limit is in intimate relationship based on adaptations that are unconscious, and powerfully limit flexibility. I work to free individuals, and couples from these family patterns that keep us stuck.

family therapy and family systems is truly my specialty. A family history of drinking alcohol for example is important for the client to be aware of in regards to their potential to become alcoholics. Also, patterns of anger, divorce, and abuse can be passed on from generation to generation, and it is important for the client to become aware and identify patterns verbally with the therapist to process and acknowledge these patterns for future generations. I also invite family members to be part of the session, as long as this is agreed upon by the client.

I help families have fun again! I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other. Family members find that they can “open-up” and start a dialogue that will help re-build their confidence, love & respect for one another. Together, we will discuss and gain insight into communication patterns, the family’s hierarchy and whether appropriate boundaries exist. Does the entire family attend sessions each week? It all depends; I may ask to see sub-sets within the family one week, or the entire family the next. The goal is always to help the family have less conflict and more connection.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I work with many families in all stages of the life cycle, facing numerous and varied challenges. This is a complex area of therapy for which I have a real passion. Families today face particularly difficult situations and can often feel overcome their resources for dealing it all. Reaching out for help to a qualified therapist is wise and most often quite helpful.

Family therapy focuses on relationshipswithin the family unit, and takes place with other family members present. My approach is to work individual first, and then bring in the family together so we can work-out what is working or what is not working. Individual counseling works because we can first see if there are any personal issues first, then bring it to family sessions.

My interest in family counseling came from studying the dynamics which make up a family, sometimes for many generations. Patterns exist as a result of shared beliefs (or rules like in my family of origin). Each family member has their own way of understanding what takes place and by using conjoint family therapy, everyone has a voice from the oldest to the youngest. As a therapist, I provide an environment for exploration, curiosity & opportunity to create better choices and which patterns the family as a whole find beneficial.

I am am trained marriage and family therapist, and will help your family exlore and improve the interaction styles between family members that are provocative, insensitive, emotionally misattuned, or in any way unproductive. We will look at ways in which children have become inappropriately drawn into parents' marital conflicts, and how that affects power dynamics within the family. Most importantly, we will examine systems of interactions that unfortunately may be supporting and maintaining pain within and between family members.

We're shaped by our relationships with our family members for life. Healthy families share certain core traits. In families that thrive, people share a willingness to change and to own their part in creating conflict, yet feel safe enough to express differences in feelings and beliefs. Whether a family is struggling with chronic conflict or emotional distance, the process of family therapy is a powerful vehicle for change. I help families increase awareness of current patterns and develop new ways of relating and interacting. While the process of family therapy is different for each family, the goals remain the same: to improve communication, increase trust, and strengthen family bonds.

Family therapy is working with the system, or the people who are present within the area of the problem. Even though a problem may be presented in one member, all members are being affected by the problem. It is the system that needs to be altered or taught how to work on communication, or interacting differently with each other. This can alter the problem. When one person changes, everyone changes.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.
