Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1707 Belle View Blvd C-1, Alexandria, Virginia 22307

It can be a confusing world, with families coming in many shapes and sizes. Learning how to be connected, have good relationships, and setting up an emotional and physical environment where everyone can thrive can be a big challenge. We focus on attachment; that is, nurturing a deep sense of connection and safety between family members. Connection takes being emotionally “there” for family members, and having time and activity together. Connection means feeling like “I belong, and I’m valued”. Safety can mean discussing a fair work-load balance, limit-setting on behavior, and knowing that we can count on each other.

Robyn's approach to adolescent therapy unites and coheres the family.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Free and open expression of thoughts and feelings is a hallmark of healthy family relationships. When members of a family feel safe to be themselves and express their thoughts and upsetting feelings, relationships flourish. Reactivity is common in family relationships. It simply says that your brain has activated your body's fight-flee-or-freeze system. A relational approach to healing family relationships focuses on forming quality connections in which each member feels they can express themselves and give from a place of love rather than fear, and non judgment allows each to grow in a supportive context.

Angela Sarafin, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

316 F Street NE, Suite 212, Washington, District of Columbia 20002

I love it when I have the opportunity to work with multiple family members because I get a chance to see rather than hearing about interaction styles and that gives me a chance to help a family try something different. Many times we get stuck in how we interact with a particular family member - perhaps you feel that a parent still treats you like a child well into your adult years. Or perhaps you feel like an emotional teenager every time you get into a power struggle with your child. I help families figure out how to "grow up" in their communication and build cooperation so that family time can be enjoyable instead of stressful.

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

1629 K Street, N.W., Suite 300, Washington, District of Columbia 20006

Are you and your spouse at odds as to how raise children? Are there power struggles in the home; Children vs. Parents? Families are more than groups of people who share the same address and genes. Although conflicts occasionally arise, a family should be a source of Christian love and support. My objective is to counsel family members on how to strengthen the family with characteristics of a Christian home; love, joy, peace, patience...fruits of the Spirit. Counseling may include all family members, or just those able or willing to participate. Single parents are encouraged. I look forward to working with you, and applaud you for taking the first step towards a peaceful coexistence!

Typically, family therapy will bring the entire family together in therapy sessions. However, it may be that individuals in the family also see the therapist alone. There may also be times when individuals who are not a member of the family (such as a teacher or school counselor) participate in a therapy session with the family if their participation would be of benefit to the family. We can help your family learn how to better solve problems and how to better express thoughts and feelings. In family therapy, family members will learn about family roles and rules. Family members will examine behavior patterns and learn to identify issues that cause conflict.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief.

Relationships are precious and can be, like many other precious things, delicate. The very love that is at the heart of relationship can lead to jealousy, disappointment, or feelings of betrayal. Family therapy is a powerful tool that can be used to put things back on track. I work as a consultant to the family. I look for ways to strengthen communication and mutual trust. I also find it very helpful to teach famlies specific techniques that can be substituted for destructive behaviors and habits that may be present.

Families are wonderful, but at times there are conflicts that seem to be beyond a simple discussion to repair. A supportive counseling environment gives families a place to talk and express their feelings while everyone can be heard. It can be a difficult process but one that ultimately keeps people connected and teaches that working through differences can be achieved.

I approach families from a Family Systems and Structural Family perspectives, in that I view differentiation and adaptable yet present boundaries among family members and extended family members as a healthy family approach. I collaborate with the client family, including all members, to identify goals and process strengths and observed issues. I view the couple subsystem as the priority on the family hierarchy, the parent and/or caregiving subsystem as second, and child or sibling subsystem as third. I assess and evaluate internal, external, and multi-generational triangle, patterns, alignments, and rules which impact the client family.

The family is the primary and most important group that most people will ever identify with. It is very important to understand the relationships that each family member has to the others that contribute to the functioning of the whole family system. It is also important to understand how families evolve over the life span. When there are problems, life transitions, or other issues, the healthy balance of the family system can be jeopardized. Family therapy can restore this balance. It can help the family understand which repetitive behavior patterns are resulting in instability, while teaching new behavior patterns that provide stability, health, and happiness to each family member.

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.

If your family is experiencing conflict and misunderstanding, I can help. By sitting down together, learning to listen to one another and allowing me to help you sort out your differences, you can begin to relate to one another in a new way. My goal is to provide a calm and safe environment where each family member expresses his or her point of view and conflicts are resolved through understanding and consensus.

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia 22101

In family therapy I meet with any number of family members together as a way to build understanding between family members and resolve conflicts that may exist. This tends to be a very active and dynamic interaction where each member is given the opportunity to express their views and concerns in a neutral environment. I, in turn provide feedback and help to clarify the issues.

Families have as many dynamics as there are members. Each family has its own system to handle life's challenges. Sometimes, some of these systems do not operate effectively. The goal of family therapy is to help families understand the systems used, how they are not helping, and learn new skills to better equip the family to provide a safe and secure home for all to thrive

Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Professional Counselor

4933 Auburn Ave, Suite 208, Bethesda, Maryland 20814

The focus of my family therapy work is the family as a whole. Working on the relationship between family members is more effective than just treating the person that is supposed to be in need of treatment. From my perspective, family therapy work sees individuals in relationships to others. As a result, the attention shifts from the symptomatic individual and problem is seen as the family as a whole. The goal of my family therapy work is to help establish a “functional family” – one in which needs and the desired goals of closeness, identity, self-expression, and meaning are met.
