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.

Families can be very complex and sometimes hard to understand with so many different roles that each family member may play. Family therapy would be very helpful with understanding each member of the family and how each one functions on a daily basis. Therapy would also provide tools to learn how to listen and have more effective communication with each other.

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.

Sheri Rose-McCashin, M.S., LMFT,

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of Santa Monica, CA

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.

In a society that has become extremely technological, many sensitive young adults have disconnected from nourishing relationships in favor of virtual ones. Connecting with parents, siblings, friends and neighbors, has been replaced by less emotionally fulfilling forms of interaction. My specialty is improving relationships. I can help you build better communication with your child. I can also assist your family in resolving issues from the past for a fresh start. I will support you in creating a more peaceful home environment. So, as difficult as things may seem right now, in working with me your can rest assured that better times ahead.

Children live in the space between their mother and father. This space is the foundational relationship where children learn that it's safe to be themselves in their full aliveness. When that space is not working, children learn defenses to survive. They can adopt acting out behaviors or simply shut down. In Couples Therapy, I help parents to clean up that space, make it sacred and give their children the chance to grow up feeling safe and happy.
