The greatest value of family therapy is that the dynamics of how loved ones speak and interact with one another, can be directly and immediately identified, discussed, evaluated and enhanced. Instead of a parent or spouse describing their frustration, helplessness, feeling bullied, other negative emotion, both the speaker and receiver of the communication, demonstrate "live" in our session. Often in family therapy, a relationship pattern frustrates two people and neither knows why. As your therapist, I will be able to see why and open your troubling dynamic to our therapy.

Many families face challenges at one time or another. When functioning well, families can work through these issues together and come out stronge. At times, however, families experience challenges that are difficult to resolve by themselves. For example: conflicts between parents and adolescent children, coping with illness of a family memeber, father/mother relationship with their children, or helping elderly parents. As a clinician I work jointly with members of families and extended families to help your family develop the tools to overcome these challenges together, to strengthen your relationships with one another, and to create a supportive environment for all.

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

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.

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.

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.

Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Psychotherapist

There are times when family dynamics become hard to manage. For a variety of reasons and circumstances, relationships can become strained. For example, a life-changing event like the birth of a child, an illness or a loss can put enormous strain on the family system. Behavior problems of a child or teen may be a stressor for the family. Siblings may have difficulty getting along or parents may differ on limit setting. Ari has worked with many families to identify strengths and weaknesses and has helped them to work together as a unit. Depending on the specific needs of the family, Ari will see a family together or in various configurations. Please visit www.copewithschool.com for more info.
