Is your family constantly fighting? Do you have conflicts that don't seem to end? Is there always tension amongst the members of the family? I think therapy is a great tool to help improve what is happening with your family. I believe that it will help develop healthy ways of relating and interacting with one another. I believe that families greatly benefit from having a person outside the home speak into what is occurring that causes difficult dynamics.

In working with families, we will collaborate on addressing the couple's need to be in charge. Family rules and boundaries are sometimes unclear to children. We will work together to communicate your expectations. When acting out, underachievement, conduct problems, defiant or oppositional behaviors present in the children, the the parents need to be on the same page. Your family will learn, insession, preferred communicatin styles; empathic listening, group problem solving skills, tolerance, respect and acceptance of each other. Family members will learn to interact without anger, resentment, sarcasm or disrespect. Parents need to be authoritative without being authoritarian.

Working with single parent families is an area in which I have a lot of experience. Often time it is helpful to facilitate communication and support to both parties since neither one feels heard or respected. This dynamic can lead to a power struggle and then the relationship get stuck in a "You are going to do what I say"; "You can't make me" dance. Another aspect is dealing with differences between temperament types. A parent and child be mismatched. Increasing awareness of the differences and dealing with them can make all the difference in the world. It is helpful at times to have individual sessions to support disclosure and practicing new skills in an open,supportive place.

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.

Dr. Carol Francis, Psy.D., MFT, CHypT,

Clinical Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Child, Hypnosis

Within Driving Distance of Playa Vista, CA

Consider all the different types of families existing today: single parent families, step-families, intact families, extended families. Families migrate, divide, expand, argue chronically, face financial crises, or blend children into one home or two homes. Within each family, children and parents need love, respect, understanding, patience, and opportunities to become successful. In addition, each member of every family is wired uniquely with different strengths and weaknesses. For over 36 years, I have worked with families with multiple needs, configurations and skills. I moved families toward workable, respectful solutions & communication and love. DrCarolFrancis.com 310-543-1824

Family Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of Playa Vista, CA

Problematic behaviors in a child or teen are usually rooted in some disturbance of the emotional connections within the family. I can help your family reconnect with each other using an approach called Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT). EFFT rebuilds connections by helping you to understand and change the repetitive and self-reinforcing negative interactions that create distance and conflict within your family. People are empowered when they feel a secure sense of being loved. They naturally become stronger, more resilient, and more autonomous – not weak or needy. Once your child or teen feels securely connected, he or she will have a foundation on which to build positive behaviors.

We are a married couple in a blended family who understands the range of dynamics and challenges a family can face. We can help you deal with differences of opinions on finances, housing, children and in-laws. We understand the complexities of raising children and step-parenting. Are you having difficulty with boundaries, rules and discipline? Is one of you feeling like an outsider in your own family? We work on creating new roles and understanding baggage from families of origin. We encourage exploring fears around the lost fantasy of what a family "should" be. We can help you find new ways to form secure alliances and open communication.

Each member of a family has a story to tell. These stories make up the whole of the family dynamic. Often, however, the stories we tell conflict with one another, and this can create disruption in family relationship. I will work within the family dynamic to help create space for each story, and work with family members to expand capacity for holding the complexity of multiple and sometimes conflicting stories, each of which has it's own unique truth.
