Do you find that emotional boundaries in your family are oftentimes trespassed? That is, are there those who do not respect the physical and psychological privacy of other family members? (This sometimes appears in the form of physical, verbal or sexual abuse.) Do you find that you seek to rescue or make excuses for other family members when they act irresponsibly or destructively? (This is called "enabling" or "co-dependency" and is very common in families with addiction.) If you are a parent, do you sometimes find yourself being disrespected by your children who look at you more as a peer than a parent? Through family therapy, emotional boundaries and effective authority are restored.

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.

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.

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.
