As well as child, individual and couples counseling, I specialize and am very successful as a family counselor. I have extensive experience, working with just parent and child, siblings or a whole large extended family. I use a family systems form of therapy, which is very interactive and allows each member of the family to feel understood, empathized with and find resolution.

Family therapy is the hallmark of counseling. All mental illness harkens back to family of origin issues.
To unweave the skein of family disorder is the essential gift only a few clinicians in the field have.
This is an area to which I have devoted much effort in my study and attention of family structures.
The negative messages that families pass down to their descendants last for generations unless contradicted by effective family intervention.

Family therapy may involve all members of the family or parts of it. Sometimes "family therapy" means seeing two sisters, sometimes a son and his dad and sometimes every member of the family. It is a dynamic process, often involving homework assignments. Emphasis tends to be on developing communication skills, listening skills and developing honesty and intimacy. Often the behavior of one or more members needs to change to bring the family back into harmony. Families are mobiles, if one part of the mobile is "spinning" all others tend to spin as well. The family is the most profound and arguably the most important unit of our society. It's health and well-being is crucial for all of us

The most frequent family issues I see are problems with parenting (agreeing on limits, consequences, either parent feeling supported by the other), difficulty with issues of adolescence (self injury, eating disorder, suicidality, substance abuse, abusive relationships, bullying), and arguing/ yelling at one another. Any one of these issues can be difficult to handle; often times they occur as a bundle of issues. This can feel overwhelming to both a parent and a child. The whole system suffers and feelings of fear, hopelessness, guilt, anger, and resentment are free-floating with no useful direction.
We will find strategies that work for your family so that you can enjoy one another again.

You will be taught to explore with each family member how they function in the midst of your family and when alone. This helps your family members focus less on one particular person and focus more on the impact it has on the family as a whole. As a team, we will identify the various roadblocks as a result of conflicts and the unnecessary anxieties that arise, as a result of. We will then develop strategies that helps to solve them. This helps to strengthen the family unit which helps family members work on their problems without assigning blame. We will also handle conflicts and changes arising within the family as a result of therapy. Your family's strengths are utilized at all levels

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.

I help families work through their struggles, differences, and patterns by getting each member to focus on how the struggles, fights, and cycles happen. I help families tune into their patterns while exploring the collective and individual meaning behind those patterns. I start by getting a general feel for the dynamic by observing how you function. Then I try to guide discussion in very simple and concrete ways so that each member can see how they are interacting with the larger dynamic. This allows opportunity for a new perspective while creating the space for change and growth. I will work with you in discovering how you and your family affect each other so that you can grow together.

Families are powerful sources of nurturance, support, and guidance. The challenges of family life, however, can be difficult to negotiate. In those times, family therapy can be immensely helpful. In an environment of safety, I help families to explore and change these difficulties while rediscovering their strengths. I have completed an intensive training in structural family therapy at the Minuchin Center for the Family in New York. In addition, I am certified in Brief Strategic Family Therapy, an empirically validated model of family therapy, and I regularly teach a graduate course on marriage and family therapy. Please see my website for more information.

Family therapy is perhaps the richest experience of therapy one can have - bringing a family together in a safe place where all points of view and perspectives can be examined is invaluable. It helps the individuals in a family, as well as the therapist, to understand how it is a family has gotten to the point where its problems can no longer easily be solved from within.
In times of family stress or crisis, family therapy can be an amazing tool to help families find new and better ways of functioning.

Family life can be a great source of strength and support. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes families get stuck and take on patterns that get in the way of natural growth and development. I have worked with families for 10+ years, to unlearn negative behavioral patterns and to re-learn satisfying ways of being together. Change can be rapid and permanent
