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. Please go to my website for more information at www.markhirschfield.com.

I provide services that help families who are in distress and crisis, regain a sense of balance and sanity. I have more than 10 years experience working with families and teens who are struggling with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, anger, and trauma. I have worked with families involved in the special education and juvenile justice systems my entire career. The benefit of having a therapist who is familiar with these systems is that I am more aware of how they function, allowing me to collaborate and intervene more effectively on behalf of your child and your family. I am happy to provide a free initial phone consultation. Give me a call today!

Family Therapy should work just like a business. There should be a CEO, a Treasurer, a VP, and a Board of Directors to make a family run. Its one of life's most difficult challenges and the one which has led to extremely high divorce rates, particularly in certain sub cultures. I aim to unify the family and build off that love to create a strong unity prepared for the increasing obstacles which may come.

I help blended families, couples, together, or separated work though issues concerning their children. So often the issue involves differing styles of discipling or dealing with a significant other. Cultural issues also crop up, especially with first generation Americans. The cultural differences between children of Immigrants can be taxing, and thus I help people recognize this, negotiate and update what works for themselves and their families.

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.

Families come to therapy feeling stuck in repetitive patterns of negative interaction. Oftentimes one or more families members feel like they have become the "scapegoat" for the family's problems and are fearful of entering therapy, concerned that doing so will only further cement that role for them. My approach to family therapy helps avoid that dynamic by not taking sides, but rather giving all members an equal voice, and helping each person feel respected and heard. At the same time, I understand that a parent's role is different than a child's, and I work to empower parents to have more "healthy authority" with their children. I am trained in Multi-dimensional Family Therapy (MDFT).

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 therapy is the best way to increase communication and healthy relationships with each other. We learn much of our behavior from our parents and those around us in our family. The unconditional love given and expected in most families is sometimes present too much, sometimes not there and sometimes just confusing. Mom too overbearing? Teenage daughter self-destructing? Dad checked out after work?
