The family can be the very foundation of support, comfort, and love, but it can also be the greatest source of stress, strain, and sorrow. Our compassionate and experienced family counselors help family members have a closer, stronger, and more rewarding relationship with each other and teach family members how to resolve conflict in a healthy way. Our counselors can assist parents to address the unique needs of children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral, communicative, and learning issues. They will help facilitate much-needed dialogue between feuding family members. The counselors will assess how best to treat the family. Sometimes, counseling will be conducted with the entire family present and sometimes with just the designated child. At...(view profile to read more)

Family therapy can be one of the biggest healing tools. If you are looking to make changes and want life to feel different, having your support people be on the same page as you pushes the positive outcomes higher than you can imagine. It resolves communication issues, heals old wounds and prevents future hurts from becoming a reality. When all of the players on a team are working to make things better a sense of togetherness comes alive.

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.

The greatest value of family therapy is that the dynamics of how loved ones speak and interact with one another, can be directly and immediately identified, discussed, evaluated and enhanced. Instead of a parent or spouse describing their frustration, helplessness, feeling bullied, other negative emotion, both the speaker and receiver of the communication, demonstrate "live" in our session. Often in family therapy, a relationship pattern frustrates two people and neither knows why. As your therapist, I will be able to see why and open your troubling dynamic to our therapy.

Working with families is a special experience because each family has their own unique characteristics and relationships. Oftentimes, issues in families relate to communication patterns, roles and expectations, ways of expressing affection, appreciation, frustration and anger. Stress of life circumstances often intrude on family relationships including work, finances, separation or divorce, school, child and adolescent development and the internet! Family therapy is often short term so that a series of sessions may prove fruitful in improving life at home.

My training in Family Counseling brings the whole family together in one room to discuss, argue, agree and disagree with the benefit of a trained moderator -the therapist-whose sees the unit as a whole as well as all the different moving parts. My goal is to help you communicate, identify the sources of both love and irritation and hopefully help each of the members work as unified whole while maintaining individual identities. I work with "families" of all genders and types, as well as traditional families.

There are times when family dynamics become hard to manage. For a variety of reasons and circumstances, relationships can become strained. For example, a life-changing event like the birth of a child, an illness or a loss can put enormous strain on the family system. Behavior problems of a child or teen may be a stressor for the family. Siblings may have difficulty getting along or parents may differ on limit setting. Ari has worked with many families to identify strengths and weaknesses and has helped them to work together as a unit. Depending on the specific needs of the family, Ari will see a family together or in various configurations. Please visit www.copewithschool.com for more info.

I was trained in Minuchin Family Therapy with Jorge Colapinto during the 1980's at the Community Center for Mental Health in Dumont, New Jersey, where I worked with family members of the severely mentally ill population. I've been providing family and couples therapy since that time, either with individual families or in a multi-family group format. Structural Family Therapy identifies the maladaptive communication and behavioral patterns within the family structure. Sometimes changing just one dynamic among family members can increase adaptive functioning, communication, and relationships. My degrees are: MA in psychology, MS in clinical social work, and PhD in social work.
