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.

Although most therapists in California have a license in Marriage and Family Counseling, most of those therapists don’t actually do family counseling. Because we have over 25 therapists at the La Vie Counseling Center we have a wide range of specialties, and one of them is family counseling. We have therapists who are equipped to work with your entire family to open lines of communication, set better boundaries and restructure relationships that have needed change for years. If your family needs help, give us a call and one of our family therapists will start the process of change that is long overdue.

Family therapy sessions aim to strengthen all members of the family so they can work out problems together. Often, if one family member is identified as having an illness, the cause can be traced back to a larger family problem. If the person with the illness is treated while the rest of the family does not change, then the symptoms will persist. Family therapy breaks these cycles by teaching everyone to better interact with one another.

Family counseling is a most valuable opportunity for helping families in crisis as well as families who may be going through a life transition. Families can become socially, emotionally and psychologically dangerous, confusing, and even internally devastating. Families that are experiencing dysfunctional changes including addictions, emotional and mental illness, abandonment, fierce arguments, new family members, departing family members, new family rules, power relationships and family power changes that happen in an unprepared manner can create emotional traumas of significant proportions. Family counseling serves to restructure a families operation and aims to transform family dysfunction to family function.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, CA

I use a family systems approach when working with families. I work with families in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. It is suggested that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of their family, as the family is an emotional unit. By working with families we can see patterns that are sometimes dysfunctional. Families who are able to see their dysfunction are able to make the changes that bring about healthy relationships within their unit.

If you meet with us, we will begin therapy working with the adults to better understand their perception of the problems.

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

Ilissa Banhazl, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, CA

Working with the entire or part of the family is always helpful in changing and improving family dynamics. When you're family comes in you will all get a chance to speak without interruption. We will improve your listening skills and your communication skills using I statements, like "I feel_____ when you________, I need for you to __________. "Using I statements helps the other person to hear what you're saying and care about your feelings while feeling less attacked than if you had said, "You always________ and I can't stand it." When working with teens it's always best to include the family. This results in more permanent changes. Bring your family in and we'll resolve your issues.

One of the ways we know who we are, is in the context of our relationships with other people. Of all the relationships that we have, it is the ones with our families that most impact us.

Family Counselor

Mark Tinley, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, CA

One of the biggest challenges for a parent is that the child is always changing. Understanding what stage your child is in and what they need from you is an important part of my work. You want the best for them, but what does that mean? Does it mean always protecting them so they never get hurt, and always providing for them so they aren’t deprived? Even if you could do this, should you? In Family Counseling, I work with parents and their children individually and together to improve their relationship, reduce conflict, set boundaries, negotiate the specifics, and define a parent-child contract to help everyone move forward into a more meaningful relationship.

Raising our children is one of the most important things that we will ever do in life. How they turn out, how life goes for them, whether they experience joy and happiness because of their inner strength and resources, or struggle with life because of inadequate coping skills is largely in our hands. Many adults have had hundreds, if not thousands of hours of training for their profession, yet when we become parents there is virtually no training available for what most people agree is one of the most important jobs on the planet: being a parent.

Family is the most basic unit of human make-up. None of us come from and exist in a vacuum. What makes up our reality is deeply rooted in the family system in which we have been reared. Without thoroughly understanding the intricate dynamics of our individually differerent family systems, it would be impossible to delve into our subjective reality which is the most fundamental basis of our unique constructs.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, 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.

In doing family therapy I try to work with all members of the family so that I can understand the dynamics, the rules and roles, the relationships that are not permitting the family to function in a healthy way. Even when it seems to be just one person who has a problem, it may be the whole family that is interacting in ways that can be improved. I work to have the family understand what is really going on and changes they may need to make to function in healthier ways. I focus on the need for respectful communication and cooperation between all family members, including children.

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, CA

To my mind, nothing is more important than supporting families in raising emotionally healthy children. In our fast-paced, high-anxiety culture, it can be hard for parents to know how best to create a nurturing environment for their children. I encourage parents to spend both quality and quantity time with their kids, to set and hold limits so that the children feel safe and secure and to resolve parental conflicts to that they don't contribute to family tension. Sometimes I work with the parents alone (not the children) and this can be quite effective. At other times it helps to bring in the entire family to observe and change family dynamics.

Families are complex and dynamic entities. Often, different family members get pigeonholed into one specific identity which is pathologizing & limiting, and does not serve them. Family systems teach us how to behave in the world. Dysfunction in families can be very harmful and can set people up to feel doomed. Luckily, there is help. In family therapy sessions we will create an atmosphere of openness and non judgment. Through identifying, and actively working through issues, balance and harmony can emerge.

Family Therapy is often the most beneficial when there is a family conflict or crises. Examples of family conflict are a recent divorce or separation, sibling rivalry, arguments over a living trust or will and discussing end-of-life issues. One of the most difficult situations for families to adjust to is blending families. If you have been married before and going into a second marriage with your own children, it brings a whole new set of problems . Examples of a family crises is death of a loved one, a family member of loved one getting a serious illness, or a family member going through a trauma like physical or sexual abuse, being severely bullied, victim of a crime or the like.

If you and your family aren't getting along or are having some form of difficulty, family therapy can be incredibly useful. I would help to give each family member a voice--a way to be heard, understood, and accepted. In fact, I would fight for this on behalf of each family member who feels disregarded, disrespected, or dismissed. I would help each person to feel respected and to be given a sense of dignity as we work together to improve the critically important aspect of communication--something I find wanting in many families.

A family is not just a collection of people. Everyone in the family impacts the family dynamic, how the people relate to each other. And, each person changes that dynamic, in a unique way, even when they may not intend to. If you’re having difficulties in your family, we can address how the family’s rules of relating and the patterns of relationships can help to make things better. We’ll also see how unproductive patterns can be eliminated.

Within Driving Distance of El Monte, CA

Working with single parent families is an area in which I have a lot of experience. Often time it is helpful to facilitate communication and support to both parties since neither one feels heard or respected. This dynamic can lead to a power struggle and then the relationship get stuck in a "You are going to do what I say"; "You can't make me" dance. Another aspect is dealing with differences between temperament types. A parent and child be mismatched. Increasing awareness of the differences and dealing with them can make all the difference in the world. It is helpful at times to have individual sessions to support disclosure and practicing new skills in an open,supportive place.

As someone trained in family therapy, I see each family member as part of a team. Sometimes, one member is in pain and acting out. The whole family will then feel the effect. I love my work with families to help them get unstuck and see the growth. For the children / teens, family counseling can help sort through the acting out (or acting in sometimes) and help them more appropriately express their needs and wants. I can help!

We are a married couple in a blended family who understands the range of dynamics and challenges a family can face. We can help you deal with differences of opinions on finances, housing, children and in-laws. We understand the complexities of raising children and step-parenting. Are you having difficulty with boundaries, rules and discipline? Is one of you feeling like an outsider in your own family? We work on creating new roles and understanding baggage from families of origin. We encourage exploring fears around the lost fantasy of what a family "should" be. We can help you find new ways to form secure alliances and open communication.

Each member of a family has a story to tell. These stories make up the whole of the family dynamic. Often, however, the stories we tell conflict with one another, and this can create disruption in family relationship. I will work within the family dynamic to help create space for each story, and work with family members to expand capacity for holding the complexity of multiple and sometimes conflicting stories, each of which has it's own unique truth.

Is your family constantly fighting? Do you have conflicts that don't seem to end? Is there always tension amongst the members of the family? I think therapy is a great tool to help improve what is happening with your family. I believe that it will help develop healthy ways of relating and interacting with one another. I believe that families greatly benefit from having a person outside the home speak into what is occurring that causes difficult dynamics.

Each family member plays a role in the family system. Each is different and expected to act as a "team." When the team approach works, the family works at it's best. However, many family members act as though they are on opposite teams. Conflict is present, then oftentimes, detacment and rebellion. Working with a therapist as a family can help identity the role each member is playing and how they work in the family system. In a safe, respectul enviornment, a therapist will provide a place to be heard, teaching productive communication skills, offering tools and insight into the family dynamics.

Family counseling is a most valuable opportunity for helping families in crisis as well as families who may be going through a life transition. Families can become socially, emotionally and psychologically dangerous, confusing, and even internally devastating. Families that are experiencing dysfunctional changes including addictions, emotional and mental illness, abandonment, fierce arguments, new family members, departing family members, new family rules, power relationships and family power changes that happen in an unprepared manner can create emotional traumas of significant proportions. Family counseling serves to restructure a families operation and aims to transform family dysfunction to family function.

Working with single parent families is an area in which I have a lot of experience. Often time it is helpful to facilitate communication and support to both parties since neither one feels heard or respected. This dynamic can lead to a power struggle and then the relationship get stuck in a "You are going to do what I say"; "You can't make me" dance. Another aspect is dealing with differences between temperament types. A parent and child be mismatched. Increasing awareness of the differences and dealing with them can make all the difference in the world. It is helpful at times to have individual sessions to support disclosure and practicing new skills in an open,supportive place.

To me, the people with whom you've chosen closeness, whether related by blood or intentional bonding, are "family." I help family members surmount problems in communication, understanding, decision-making, and boundary setting. I have also worked successfully with family businesses, or business groups that are "family-like," when dynamics become problematic. Sometimes, longstanding patterns or roles need to be addressed and adjusted. Some members may feel unheard, under-appreciated, or discounted, and need a chance to re-establish their sense of belonging within the group. I'm honored to have been part of creating family therapy breakthroughs that truly change peoples lives.

When our relationship becomes unhappy, it always affects and impacts the entire family. Working with couples to improve the relationship is important but we cannot overlook the impact to the family. In family therapy we explore problems that have negatively impacted the family from wherever it has come. We will help each member of the family to understand what is happening, how it has impacted them and explore methods of adjustment and remediation. We will identify problems and work to resolve them.

Our struggles are not formed, nor do they persist, in a vacuum. Particularly when working with young children, it is often important to work with the family as a unit to create systemic changes which will support lasting change. This make take the shape of helping to facilitate difficult parent - teen communication, change interaction patterns between parents and children to support changes in all family members, or involving the family in supporting one member's recovery from a traumatic experience. Whatever your goal is for your family, please call to discuss how family therapy with me may benefit you.

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.

Children live in the space between their mother and father. This space is the foundational relationship where children learn that it's safe to be themselves in their full aliveness. When that space is not working, children learn defenses to survive. They can adopt acting out behaviors or simply shut down. In Couples Therapy, I help parents to clean up that space, make it sacred and give their children the chance to grow up feeling safe and happy.

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.

A healthy family is much like owning and maintaining a car. That is, if something is wrong with the car, the car won't run properly. Same goes for families. If one person is having difficulties then it affects the entire family. Family therapy helps everyone in the family work better together by addressing all the problems that are getting in the way.

I routinely work with families in my practice. There are any number of reasons that families seek counseling. Quite frequently, the reasons revolve around children and parenting. Sometimes there are issues between child or adult siblings. Unresolved conflicts from childhood. Arguments ensue over the family business. Caring for a special needs child, or an aging parent. At other times, family members have experienced a loss in the family or there are struggles with blending families in second marriages. These struggles also bring with them opportunities to create openings that may not have existed before. Counseling can be very useful in healing old wounds and settling disputes.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Consider all the different types of families existing today: single parent families, step-families, intact families, extended families. Families migrate, divide, expand, argue chronically, face financial crises, or blend children into one home or two homes. Within each family, children and parents need love, respect, understanding, patience, and opportunities to become successful. In addition, each member of every family is wired uniquely with different strengths and weaknesses. For over 36 years, I have worked with families with multiple needs, configurations and skills. I moved families toward workable, respectful solutions & communication and love. DrCarolFrancis.com 310-543-1824

Families are complicated machines. There are many parts, all of which must work in unison and balance with one another. When this balance is disrupted because one or more family members are having an issue or a hard time, the entire machine (family) stops functioning optimally. Like any machine would, your family may need a "tune up" at that time. You must relearn how to function at your best.

There are many types of families, because family is inclusive of every culture, gender, age, relationship, or belief system. Families often create allies with one another to maintain destructive behaviors, often out of fear and the inability to be honest about oneself. My work with families is to explore these dramatic destructive behaviors and develop ways and means with family members to recognize patterns and take steps use constructive approaches of listening, empathy, dispassion, and communication.
