Family therapy can be beneficial when parents are at odds with their teenager. Because teens are enveloped in a virtual world that widens the gap, a counselor can be a helpful go-between to improve communication. Dr. Staat will work to help parents learn to understand their children while teaching them to set firm limits, delineate boundaries, and enforce appropriate consequences when rules are violated. Dr. Staat has found that most teens respond when parents provide a sturdy wall of expectations that holds strong no matter how fiercely teens push against it. Dr. Staat will provide help & support.

I work with families of teenagers to establish healthy lines of communication & healthy tools for conflict resolution. Often this is accomplished through various types of counseling sessions: individual as well as couples & family sessions. I work with families to tailor my approach to their unique family relationships & struggles. Communication between teenagers & their families can greatly be improved through therapy! You can learn to talk to your teen in such a way that they listen & listen so your teen will talk to you more openly! Conflict resolution skills can also be learned so that the emotional climate of your home is much brighter & more stable. Family therapy can greatly help!

I consult with families who have a loved one with an eating disorder. Families are in the dark when it comes to knowing how to handle the day-to-day functioning with their family member, how to help, where to go for appropriate expert treatment and how to approach their loved one with their concerns. Often families use their natural instincts to help and find they are making the problems worse. Sometimes husbands or wives need help addressing their worries to their mates as well. This is very tricky, but can be facilitated with help. I offer support, information, specific guidelines and resources for families who hire me in this type of scary situation.
