During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Every person is part of a larger system. The relationship between family members is based upon previous generational life patterns and coping mechanisms. When there is family discord, there is usually an imbalance. These issues tend to become exacerbated during crises or during life transitions. Phyllis provides family therapy to help examine each person's unique role in the family and relationship alliances., The goal is to help your family move toward a more unified, mutually respectful system that is equipped to meet life's challenges.

Family therapy begins with the couple. When the parents are not getting along it will affect the children and the whole family negatively. Children need positive role models. I work with couples by emphasizing how to develop compassion with each other. When we can see an issue from the other person's point of view, all tension automatically subsides and restores harmony and connection.

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.

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.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist for over 25 years with 2 PhDs and extensive training, I have helped distraught couples, sibs who haven’t talked for years, parents with overwhelming child problems, friends on the outs, difficult work relations, and extended feuding families. I know how frustrating it is to struggle with the many intricacies involved in keeping important relationships alive and well. There are multiple approaches to family therapy. To be trained in these different approaches and to know when to use which intervention or combination of interventions demands expertise. I am fortunate in having been able to make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients wi

It is not very common for an entire family to seek help from psychotherapy. What often happens is that one person comes into therapy, begins to get help and invites a mother, father, or sibling to participate in sessions. And even if all family members aren't willing or able to participate, psychotherapy with me can help the entire family. As people begin making changes in therapy, they are more able to communicate their needs and take better care of themselves. And I often will do phone sessions so that all members can participate. It is more important for people to get the help they need rather than be in the same room with the therapist.
