Family therapy is perhaps the biggest most challenging work to be done with the greatest impact on the most important system in your life. Understanding the dynamics and roles played by each member in the family is worth it's weight in gold. From identifying, understanding, learning and then implementing changes the family can be changed from a system that is struggling to survive to a system blossoming, offering support to all family members and adapting as needed to help members thrive.

Working with families is extremely rewarding and requires a therapist to be able to manage multiple perspectives, a variety of feelings and behaviors while creating a safe and supportive environment for every family member. My role is to facilitate a fair and open space for each family member to share their thoughts and feelings about a variety of issues. Enhancing the manner in which families resolve confict is key to my treatment and intervention. Communication skills and conflict resolution are all part of this process. Each family is unique and it requires from me a cultural and gender sensitivity and understanding.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Each person in a family has a voice and each person in a family has an impact. I am careful to make certain that the family looks at all the members and how they all interact as a family unit. It is important that each member is respected. We look at how the family is not in a state of health due to choices that the family is making. We work together toward connection, understanding, and growth for all memebers. Unhealthy alliances and interactions are acknowledged.

I help families rediscover the well-being. All families fight; but for some the fighting can overshadow the love that was once there. I specialize in the understanding the roots of difficulties in relationships. I believe that when fight can discover the underlying causes of problems, they are in a better position to heal the roots of the difficulties.

Family Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Problematic behaviors in a child or teen are usually rooted in some disturbance of the emotional connections within the family. I can help your family reconnect with each other using an approach called Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT). EFFT rebuilds connections by helping you to understand and change the repetitive and self-reinforcing negative interactions that create distance and conflict within your family. People are empowered when they feel a secure sense of being loved. They naturally become stronger, more resilient, and more autonomous – not weak or needy. Once your child or teen feels securely connected, he or she will have a foundation on which to build positive behaviors.

Problems don't exist in a vacuum, and are often triggered by our loved ones. Living in these relationships means that we can be triggered by each other, and act with increased stress and anger--which is a part of being human. There is a special type of healing that can be done when your family comes together in a safe environment and works on the health of the group. If your relationships need additional support and safety in order to move into a new, healthier way of interacting together, I'm here. If your loved ones aren't biological, but you want a safe place for your group to work out problems, I'm here for you too.

If you meet with us, we will begin therapy working with the adults to better understand their perception of the problems. Then we will work to help the adults gain insight into their part of the family dysfunction. Once those patterns change usually the children or teens respond favorably to the changes and often the acting out behaviors can be resolved fairly quickly.

Family Counselor

Sara Doudna-Klein, LMFT

I enjoy working with families. It is a challenge and also a great satisfaction to help families understand how their individual traits and behaviors form "family patterns" . I help them to identify each person's role in the problem and how each can contribute to the solution. Family dynamics are facinating. So few people are aware of how families really function. I become fully engaged with each family...with their problems, their hopes and dreams, the special qualities of the individuals. I don't solve their problems - I give them tools to solve their own problems for today and for the future.

Family Counselor

DeAnn Richter, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Buena Park, CA

Family therapy is the treatment of more than one member of a family at the same session, based on the idea that problems going on within the family can best be understood and corrected by observing the interaction of family members and identifying methods for improving their interrelationships. The behaviors of one member of the family affects the emotions, perceptions and behaviors of another member of the family. They are intertwined as something larger than themselves. Together, I will teach you a variety of tools that will help your family's interaction. For example, through reframing, we can often turn a negative experience into a positive one. Call me for a phone consultation to determine when we can meet to discuss your family issues.
