Families can be the source of tremendous joy and also the source of tremendous pain. When things are feeling out of control at home or in your extended family, members often become depressed and angry. Emotionally Focused Family Therapy can help transform negative interaction patterns and restore connections. Your family can be a safe place, a place where each member is valued, loved and appreciated for their unique qualities. If you are a family with a Special Needs child, you have specific challenges that can be helped by an experienced therapist. You do not need to navigate this difficult road alone!

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.

Amy Price, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Santa Fe, 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.

Families get often get in stuck places relationally and have a difficult time connecting and relating to one another.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Each stage of a family's life cycle presents new and unique challenges. Interaction patterns that were functional in earlier stages may no longer be effective. Coping with challenges and negotiating new boundaries and ways of relating can be difficult and problems can appear overwhelming. I assist families in developing manageable solutions, maintaining connections, and re-establishing an environment of mutual love and support. Don’t live with the pain and fear of family conflict any longer. Contact me so we can get your family the support you need.

Family Counselor

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Santa Fe, 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.
