Family Counselor

Danica Byler, MA

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

425 Marshall Ave., St. Loius, IL

Danica has helped many families through counseling. She is skilled at listening to each person's perspective around issues, and believes that every voice in a family matters. While family difficulties can feel insurmountable at times, connection and understanding are some of the most important aspects of recovering from the feeling of being broken as a family unit. Regardless of the circumstances, families can heal. This healing is necessary in many situations, including families who are going through life transitions with their children, divorce/separation, co-parenting after divorce, helping children survive divorce, and issues in blended families.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Similarly to the way all the parts of a car engine function together to make the vehicle run, family members have specific roles they fill that cause the family to operate the way it does. Families will benefit from family counseling because when something is wrong within the family system, every member can benefit from change. The good news about family therapy is that when one person begins to change, it effects change in everyone.

David Wilde, MA, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

12166 Old Big Bend Road, Suite 204, St. Louis, IL

Living in families is difficult. Even the best families have their days. My approach to family therapy involves examining the dynamics of relationships (e.g. roles, communication patterns) in order to assist each member to grow in healthier interactions. I subscribe to an understanding of the family as a system. In other words, no one person is the cause of current difficulties.

Sandra A. Shachar, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

225 S. Meramec Ave., Suite 432T, st louis, IL

Our families of origin are where we learn how to see the world, people and relationships. When families encounter significant stress or change - such as the loss of a member of or a change in status through divorce or remarriage - it can be difficult to regain equilibrium. Often it is reassuring for families to learn that what they are dealing with is normal, and given some coping strategies they can regain their good functioning. Some families need help with communication issues, appropriate boundaries, parenting strategies, or dealing with aging parents or members with alcohol and drug issues. Whatever the case may be, creater deeper understanding between family members is always key.

Family Counselor

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

12882 Manchester Rd #204, St Louis, IL

Family relationships can reach difficult places. Due to long-standing patterns of conflict, it can be emotionally difficult to improve parent-child and sibling relationships. I believe in the importance of facilitating mutual understanding for all parties involved in which each other feels respect and care from the other. I also teach communication skills and help family members constructively work together to improve intimacy and resolve problems.

Family Counselor

Mike Diller, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

13354 Manchester Rd. Ste. 210, Des Peres, IL

One of the greatest challenges of improving family relationships is changing the relational dynamics that are often highly emotionally charged. Family of origin issues and hurt from childhood relationships causes us to be highly emotionally sensitive when communicating with loved ones. When family members are able to respond to one another without reacting defensively and with less negative emotion, they can learn to form more trusting relationships and work together to communicate without conflict. My approach emphasizes learning to identify negative and change relational patterns and communicate non-defensively to demonstrate care and understanding--Forgiveness and renewal often follow

Family Counselor

John Cordray, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1230 Big Bend Rd., Ballwin, IL

Is your family out of control? Is communication non-existent in your home? Do you long for peace and harmony? If so, you'll likely benefit from family therapy. When families come to see me we talk about the whole family, not just one or two individuals. I believe conflict in the home involves everyone, therefore family therapy should involve everyone too. I will address everyone and challenge everyone to work on their contribution to the conflict. We'll address negative patterns that develop and how to replace them with positive ones. You'll learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way and how to communicate without fighting. Call me and let's talk about a plan of action for your family.
