Family Counselor

Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

Within Driving Distance of Perth Amboy, NJ

Originally trained as a family therapist at the Family Institute of Cambridge, Mass., I have evolved as an experienced family therapist. I believe that family therapy is generally the treatment of choice in resolving issues and preventing the problem from going to the next generation. It is useful to see an entire family but can also be beneficial if parts of a family will work together to overcome communication problems, resentments, and misunderstandings that can tear families apart. Family therapy is very helpful to resolving conflicts of adult children after a parent has died. It can also be useful with young children, siblings, as well as teenagers, middle-aged people and older adults.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

I teach family members a skill called the Intentional Dialogue to help improve family communication. Often family members don't feel heard, that what they say matters, understood and that others know what they are feeling. The Intentional Dialogue allows each family member to share their 'side of the story' in a safe environment without fearing being judged or criticized. When this happens family members start to work as a team rather than be adversarial.

Licensed Professional Counselor

When I work with teens, I do like to keep the parents involved. Sometimes, my work with a young family member reveals patterns within the family system that cannot be resolved effectively by working with just that family member. By having everyone in the family unit to share perspectives, concerns, we uncover assumed roles, responsibilities, and labels that may be dysfunctional for the family system.

Terri DiMatteo, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In family counseling family members develop healthy ways of communicating and responding to one another to create and establish an atmosphere of trust and emotional safety. Family members learn to identify their own needs, increase sensitivity to the needs of others and interact in ways that build trust. Family counseling is conducted in an atmosphere of respect and dignity for all.

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.

Family Counselor

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Perth Amboy, NJ

Family problems affect everyone in the family-from the oldest down to the youngest family member. Working with as few as two family members, I can help you and your family resolve conflict, emotional cut-offs, and negative communication patterns. Long term unresolved issues often create present day conflict and misunderstandings that affect everyone in the family. Therapy can help uncover and resolve those issues as well as work through the current family issues.
