Sue Passalacqua, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

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.

Robert Puff, M.A., M.Div., Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Carolyn Hudson, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my education, training, and experience has had an emphasis on the family system. When working with families, a focus on the structure of the family, roles, rules, boundaries, and communication are areas included in our work together. Families of origin, extended families, and blended families can participate in family therapy and I find it beneficial when we can include all involved so everyone has a voice.

I help families rediscover the well-being. All families fight; but for some the fighting can overshadow the love that was once there.

Family Counselor

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Family Counselor

DeAnn Richter, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, 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.

Family Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Family Counselor

Susette Magana, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Family Counselor

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Family Counselor

Sara Doudna-Klein, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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

Ed Segawa, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Family Counselor

Dr. Lynne, Ph.D., L.M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

All of our counselors practice Family Psychology. We understand and treat symptoms from a systems perspective. This means that many factors contribute to an problem behavior.

Family Counselor

Lyndsay Elliott, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Therapy focuses on the patterns of interaction between family members, and emphasizes improved communication and connection as an important factor to create change. Involving various family members in treatment helps to benefit so that everyone has a similar understanding of the issues within the relationships, and expectations of others. The most important factor within those connections is personal accountability so that each member is taking responsibility for any actions they cause to the system, versus being focused on how other members may have hurt them.

Family Counselor

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My style to family therapy is to look at the family system as a whole. One person's suffering can be sympomatic of the family and I can help guide the family to a healthier style of communicating, interacting and bring you closer together. Having a large family of my own gives me the added edge in understanding the challenges that are faced on a daily basis!

Family Counselor

Nancy D Young, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Being part of any size group is challenging because we are called upon to deal with temperaments, personalities, and perspectives that differ from our own. And in families especially, we often wonder “WHY can’t they all be more like ME?!” as we struggle to also deal with different age groups and outside influences, such as peer pressures and various scheduling demands. Good, respectful communication and establishing (and maintaining) proper boundaries are key. We look to the family to provide us with a stable base… a safe haven from the world, and when it fails to do that, we are often heartbroken. Whether you have a child going through a rough transition, a teen that is trying to individuate, the challenge of blending two families, a desire to reunite...(view profile to read more)

Family Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

Family Counselor

Stephenie Champlin, MSW, ASW

Associate Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

I believe that families have written and unwritten rules that allow that family to function. And sometimes, there is a breakdown in how the family functions whether from a death in the family, a move, a member of the family not wanting to do her/his "job" or any other number of things. Meeting as a family can allow everyone to have a chance to speak and avoid some of the he said/she said that goes around. If you believe you and your family could benefit from some assistance and guidance, please call me at 714-432-9856.

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.

Many times families need help to deal with struggles between them, or to get through difficult circumstances.

Family Counselor

Verdant Oak Behavioral Health, Psy.D. and Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

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.

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.

Families migrate, divide, expand, argue chronically, face financial crises, or blend children into one home or two homes.

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.

As a mental health practitioner, I provide family & caregiver and elder counseling to support families during difficult life transitions. Depending on the unique needs of the family, I facilitate communication between family members that assist in the development of strategies to cope with the changes and unexpected challenges. Through therapeutic conversations, family members can express their feelings of frustration, sadness, anxiety, and guilt.

My style to family therapy is to look at the family system as a whole. One person's suffering can be sympomatic of the family and I can help guide the family to a healthier style of communicating, interacting and bring you closer together.

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Families are the fundamental unit of our society. Healthy families make our world better. I try to balance the needs of the individual with the need for a stable and happy family. It is critical that all voices be heard, including children who do not have the authority of a parent, but whose voice, feelings and behaviors are always some kind of barometer about what is going on in the family. Finding ways to support multiple needs while preserving the family's stability is what I specialize in. While compromise can be important, I feel it is important to help families find ways where all basic needs can be met. You will learn to be open and communicate more in your family work with me.

I believe that families have written and unwritten rules that allow that family to function. And sometimes, there is a breakdown in how the family functions whether from a death in the family, a move, a member of the family not wanting to do her/his "job" or any other number of things. Meeting as a family can allow everyone to have a chance to speak and avoid some of the he said/she said that goes around. If you believe you and your family could benefit from some assistance and guidance, please call me at 714-432-9856.

In the beginning family teaches us who we are and how to relate to others. Our family can enhance our self esteem, provide a nurturing environment for our well-being and influence our outlook on life. Parenting skills and increased understanding of child developmental stages are emphasized in younger families. As a family matures, the focus may change to accommodate life transitions. Complications may arise related to expectations, autonomy, and issues of inter-relatedness. Each family member has the ability to positively or negatively affect the lives of the other members. A healthy, resilient, family structure values both individuality and group cohesiveness. They are able to accept the na....

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.

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.

All family systems have rules and unspoken rules that help regulate and assist families to cope with stress.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Therapy focuses on the patterns of interaction between family members, and emphasizes improved communication and connection as an important factor to create change. Involving various family members in treatment helps to benefit so that everyone has a similar understanding of the issues within the relationships, and expectations of others. The most important factor within those connections is personal accountability so that each member is taking responsibility for any actions they cause to the system, versus being focused on how other members may have hurt them.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
