Gary Brown, PhD, LMFT, FAPA
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I routinely work with families in my practice. There are any number of reasons that families seek counseling. Quite frequently, the reasons revolve around children and parenting. Sometimes there are issues between child or adult siblings. Unresolved conflicts from childhood. Arguments ensue over the family business. Caring for a special needs child, or an aging parent. At other times, family members have experienced a loss in the family or there are struggles with blending families in second marriages. These struggles also bring with them opportunities to create openings that may not have existed before. Counseling can be very useful in healing old wounds and settling disputes.

Do you want to feel closer to family members? Would like to strengthen family bonds and let your family know how much you really care about them? Family relationships are for life. Why not work on learning how to value, respect, and improve them? I work with family members and families to help them improve and strengthen their relationships as well as foster and support them.

Families provide a unique complexity of dynamics and relationships. Different personalities, families of origin and opinions/perspectives often lead to conflict among two or more members within the family. While there may be one "identified client", it is important to work together as a system to make changes and grow. I work with families on communication skills, conflict resolution and becoming more aware of how their behaviors effect others around them.

I offer family therapy to improve interpersonal relationships and bonds. I often use experiential concepts in order to get all members active in therapy. Much of our communication is non-verbal so participating in experiential therapy can be eye opening and make it easier to communicate. I also use the family systems approach. In order to help one person in a family it is necessary to see the family system in action.
