I particularly enjoy working with pairs within a family system—a mother and daughter for instance or siblings. Family members who are longing to be closer to each other and having trouble doing it, or wanting to better communicate. This isn't about trying to fix another person or convince them of our views. In therapy, getting to deeper levels of empathy and understanding with the people closest to us can solve a lot of issues on its own, building respect and tolerance for differences, and a gratifying sense of connection. It takes courage, effort, and the willingness to lay down our swords and shields, but it is worth it.

Family therapy looks at individuals in the context of family. A person does not develop in a vacuum. Family dynamics, roles and messages greatly impact adult and child behaviors. In talk therapy we may look at your history and attachment patterns in your family of origin and/or your current family. Allowing time and space to talk about these issues allows emotion to flow through you instead of causing blocks and dysfunction.

Having your family all in one room talking openly about personal issues with a therapist may sound like the worst possible way to spend an hour. Families are complicated and sometimes communication can almost completely break down. I can help each member of your family to feel heard and understood. By listening deeply to your past and present personal family history we can collaborate to make meaningful links and identify where communication might be breaking down. By creating effective communication we can generate movement around family issues and dynamics that may have felt stuck or impossible to understand. My style is warm, nonjudgmental, and active.

Family therapy is perhaps the richest experience of therapy one can have - bringing a family together in a safe place where all points of view and perspectives can be examined is invaluable. It helps the individuals in a family, as well as the therapist, to understand how it is a family has gotten to the point where its problems can no longer easily be solved from within. In times of family stress or crisis, family therapy can be an amazing tool to help families find new and better ways of functioning.

Families come to therapy feeling stuck in repetitive patterns of negative interaction. Oftentimes one or more families members feel like they have become the "scapegoat" for the family's problems and are fearful of entering therapy, concerned that doing so will only further cement that role for them. My approach to family therapy helps avoid that dynamic by not taking sides, but rather giving all members an equal voice, and helping each person feel respected and heard. At the same time, I understand that a parent's role is different than a child's, and I work to empower parents to have more "healthy authority" with their children. I am trained in Multi-dimensional Family Therapy (MDFT).

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I provide services that help families who are in distress and crisis, regain a sense of balance and sanity. I have more than 10 years experience working with families and teens who are struggling with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, anger, and trauma. I have worked with families involved in the special education and juvenile justice systems my entire career. The benefit of having a therapist who is familiar with these systems is that I am more aware of how they function, allowing me to collaborate and intervene more effectively on behalf of your child and your family. I am happy to provide a free initial phone consultation. Give me a call today!

The most frequent family issues I see are problems with parenting (agreeing on limits, consequences, either parent feeling supported by the other), difficulty with issues of adolescence (self injury, eating disorder, suicidality, substance abuse, abusive relationships, bullying), and arguing/ yelling at one another. Any one of these issues can be difficult to handle; often times they occur as a bundle of issues. This can feel overwhelming to both a parent and a child. The whole system suffers and feelings of fear, hopelessness, guilt, anger, and resentment are free-floating with no useful direction. We will find strategies that work for your family so that you can enjoy one another again.

You will be taught to explore with each family member how they function in the midst of your family and when alone. This helps your family members focus less on one particular person and focus more on the impact it has on the family as a whole. As a team, we will identify the various roadblocks as a result of conflicts and the unnecessary anxieties that arise, as a result of. We will then develop strategies that helps to solve them. This helps to strengthen the family unit which helps family members work on their problems without assigning blame. We will also handle conflicts and changes arising within the family as a result of therapy. Your family's strengths are utilized at all levels

I help blended families, couples, together, or separated work though issues concerning their children. So often the issue involves differing styles of discipling or dealing with a significant other. Cultural issues also crop up, especially with first generation Americans. The cultural differences between children of Immigrants can be taxing, and thus I help people recognize this, negotiate and update what works for themselves and their families.

My experience practicing family therapy is magical: taking a positive view and seeing the family as a system seeking happiness, I have been able to radically improve a child's life and increase their family's happiness through simple changes to a family's interactions. One example was a 10-year old boy whose behavior was so extreme he was prohibited from public and private schools and headed to a permanent psychiatric institution. In 12 sessions he returned to total normalcy and public school. Since training at Ackerman Family Institute (with Olga Silverstein) and the Washington Family Institute (with Chloe Madanes & Jay Haley), I have practiced family therapy for over thirty-years.
