Our family lives can be tremendously gratifying and enriching and a source of invaluable support and belonging. They can also become tense and chaotic at times, especially when under the influences of acute or chronic stress. Such responses are understandable, but you may need the support and guidance of a skilled therapist from time to time, especially if you are experiencing persistent conflicts that you cannot resolve or mediate on your own. Psychotherapy can help you relate to your family with more ease or resolve even long-standing problems. If you wish to explore how I could help with your particular situation, please call me at 415-533-9724. I would be happy to talk with you.

Family therapy looks at individuals in the context of family. A person does not develop in a vacuum. Family dynamics, roles and messages greatly impact adult and child behaviors. In talk therapy we may look at your history and attachment patterns in your family of origin and/or your current family. Allowing time and space to talk about these issues allows emotion to flow through you instead of causing blocks and dysfunction.

My experience practicing family therapy is magical: taking a positive view and seeing the family as a system seeking happiness, I have been able to radically improve a child's life and increase their family's happiness through simple changes to a family's interactions. One example was a 10-year old boy whose behavior was so extreme he was prohibited from public and private schools and headed to a permanent psychiatric institution. In 12 sessions he returned to total normalcy and public school. Since training at Ackerman Family Institute (with Olga Silverstein) and the Washington Family Institute (with Chloe Madanes & Jay Haley), I have practiced family therapy for over thirty-years.

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.

I have worked with families for several years and more specifically, I have worked with families who are supporting an individual with either an eating disorder or a mood disorder. Helping family members understand the process of healing for the family member who is experiencing the symptoms is crucial for the wellbeing of the entire family system. I also help families who are dealing with enmeshment and codependency issues to find strength in their individual autonomy and independence.

Family Therapist

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Corte Madera

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Family Therapist

Charis Khoury, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Corte Madera

I particularly enjoy working with pairs within a family system—a mother and daughter for instance or siblings. Family members who are longing to be closer to each other and having trouble doing it, or wanting to better communicate. This isn't about trying to fix another person or convince them of our views. In therapy, getting to deeper levels of empathy and understanding with the people closest to us can solve a lot of issues on its own, building respect and tolerance for differences, and a gratifying sense of connection. It takes courage, effort, and the willingness to lay down our swords and shields, but it is worth it.

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

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).

I found that the skills that my Couples learn from me: how to speak and listen in a way that allows real intimacy to digest on the gut level is extremely useful in working with families. Many times family members love each other but that love does not digest. Often there is a child or teenager that is acting out and when the parents learn how to connect with their child on a deeper level, the need for the acting out behaviors goes away. Parents sometimes need help being on the same team to BOTH provide the necessary structure (rules) AND do it in a way so the child (or teen) digests the love. Your children appreciate the rules from a loving team (even if they pretend they hate them)!

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

Most families who come in to see me consist of adult children and their parents. Usually if a family with young children want to see me with their kids, the issues are more about how to parent more effectively. In those cases, I work with the parents to improve the family situation. Let me know if you would like to talk further about your family situation.
