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

Being in a family, especially a blended family can be stressful. As parents, how do we meet the needs of the family, each child and our own needs all at the same time? As teens or children, how do we fit in and feel understood? When I work with a family I spend time getting to know each family member. I want to know what you are experiencing and how you are relating to each other. Often family members forget how to communicate with each other. I teach communication tools to help you reconnect. Helping you feel seen, heard, understood and accepted for who you are as a person and family member is my goal. Every family has conflict. Learning to respond in a healthy way can help.

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

My approach to family therapy is to help all members of the family become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how what they do effects the family system as a whole. Only when each individual family member is able and willing to take responsibility for their behavior in the family system can the desired changes be implemented while at the same time being able to respect, accept, and value each others differences.

I subscribe to the Gottman method which teaches effective listening, softening tools and mutual respect and value for each family member. Family therapy is one of my favorite areas and I love to see couples and families relearn how to experience the love they share for one another and give every family member a voice so they can gain self esteem that they can bring out in to the world

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.
