Family Counselor

Pamela Polcyn, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage And Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Family Therapy can offer simple solutions to complex problems that undermine the strength of the family. With the insight and support of a trained therapist you can see self defeating behavior and learn ways to improve your life and the life of family members. Rebuilding the connective tissues of love, intimacy and communication contribute to being happy now rather than being stuck in patterns of resentments, sadness and fears that make happy relationships difficult. Learning to trust yourself and other family members strengthens the bonds that make relationships both meaningful and rewarding. Sometimes going back to the basics of kindness and respect create the profound changes we want.

Family Counselor

Adrienne Levy, MS, BSN, RN, LPC, NCC

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

I have learned that rarely is a problem located in 1 person alone. Systems such as families or marriages, support and maintain problem dynamics. It can be helpful to discern how various members in a family deliberately or unconsciously contribute to maintenance of problems. Rather than focus on changing 1 person, therapy can focus on disrupting a problem dynamic and learning new ways to respond to old provocations.

Family Counselor

Amy Price, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

I adore working with families. When I am able to help families access their love for one another & teach them to demonstrate their love in real, palpable ways, I see transformation. It sometimes takes someone outside the family system to encourage positive change. I work with different tools to affect this change & help families strengthen their bonds and learn to interact in love and respect for one another. I also believe in the need to strengthen the marriage or parenting relationship first so that children can feel the utmost security and have a strong foundation.

Family Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, 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

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

No one exits in a vacuum and if one family member is suffering, it's very likely that other members are affected in some way. Because the symptomatic individual may be serving some organizing function in the family, the family's dynamics may be responsible for keeping the pain alive in order to maintain a sense of stability no matter how uncomfortable it may be. Dr. Wendt is able to assess a family's underlying structure looking for patterns of dysfunctional interactions that may be causing symptoms in a member. Treating the family as a whole unit in therapy has been shown, at times, to be a more efficient and faster agent of change than individual therapy alone.

Family Counselor

Roxanne Strauss, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

When I work with families, together we look for patterns and cycles that the family seems to be repeating but are creating problems for the family. When there is stress in the family, emotions tend to be very strong, so it can be difficult to think through each person's part in the family that may be keeping the system from changing. In family therapy we work at lowering the anxiety so that we can collaborate together for positive solutions.

Family Counselor

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Family therapy is usually the treatment of choice when there are parent/child conflicts. Such conflicts can come about due to many different causes: a highly conflictual divorce that involves children; a newly constituted blended family; adolescent behavior problems; failure to launch issues; inter-generational issues; and many others. My approach in all of these matters is to work to bring the conflicting parties together based on mutual empathy, forgiveness, and effective problem solving. I have helped many hundreds of families over the course of my career and have learned that each family situation is unique and must be approached on this basis.

Family Counselor

Donna Scott, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Families may be a source of security or conflict, love or strong dislike ( I did not want to say hate, although many a teenager has said the dreaded words "I hate you!) Many times families are able to work through the struggles and stay connected with each other, sometimes families need a little outside help. I want to improve the familial interaction and nurture change in order to create a safe haven that can endure any storm.

Family Counselor

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

The loss of a child can cause problems within the family unit, as each person experiences grief in a different way. Family therapy, whether we are discussing current dynamics or past situations, is a powerful space to begin healing as often it is those closest to us that can hurt us the most. I have been married for 20 years and have 4 kids as a part of a blended family so I understand different family dynamics very well, both personally and as an experienced therapist.
