No two families were created alike. Therefore, therapy has to be customized to suit the particular dynamics of each family. Assembly-line approaches won't work. Healthy communication and individual growth within each family member as well as the entire family system are some important goals in family therapy. One family systems approach I Integrate in my counseling is that of Carl Whitaker's. This involves "authentically 'being' with the family and their anxieties rather than aloofly applying predetermined techniques." Individuation is a priority-- each member is allowed his/her own perceptions and treatment as an individual.

"I love my family enough to bring them here. As a family, we need help." Many of my clients are families who need support and guidance to help them through a difficult season in their family life. Frequent conflicts, feeling distant, and wanting to talk openly and honestly within the security and privacy of my therapy office are typical reasons families come to me for Family Therapy. As a Family-Systems Therapist, I help families explore how their relationships can be transformed through openness to a new way of communicating and relating to one another. If your family could benefit from support and guidance, call me today at (626) 272-4908. I look forward to connecting with you.

Our struggles are not formed, nor do they persist, in a vacuum. Particularly when working with young children, it is often important to work with the family as a unit to create systemic changes which will support lasting change. This make take the shape of helping to facilitate difficult parent - teen communication, change interaction patterns between parents and children to support changes in all family members, or involving the family in supporting one member's recovery from a traumatic experience. Whatever your goal is for your family, please call to discuss how family therapy with me may benefit you.

I approach family therapy from a perspective that the family is one organic system--each member plays a part in the system. Roles are are defined and reinforced. Every family has an equilibrium. When change happens quickly, the family system gets dysregulated. Seeing interactional patterns and making subtle shifts in ways of relating can make dramatic changes. My role is to help make those shifts slowly and in ways that feel the least disruptive.

One of the biggest challenges for a parent is that the child is always changing. Understanding what stage your child is in and what they need from you is an important part of my work. You want the best for them, but what does that mean? Does it mean always protecting them so they never get hurt, and always providing for them so they aren’t deprived? Even if you could do this, should you? In Family Counseling, I work with parents and their children individually and together to improve their relationship, reduce conflict, set boundaries, negotiate the specifics, and define a parent-child contract to help everyone move forward into a more meaningful relationship.

Family Therapy is often the most beneficial when there is a family conflict or crises. Examples of family conflict are a recent divorce or separation, sibling rivalry, arguments over a living trust or will and discussing end-of-life issues. One of the most difficult situations for families to adjust to is blending families. If you have been married before and going into a second marriage with your own children, it brings a whole new set of problems . Examples of a family crises is death of a loved one, a family member of loved one getting a serious illness, or a family member going through a trauma like physical or sexual abuse, being severely bullied, victim of a crime or the like.

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.

Feeling disconnected from your partner or children? Struggling with parenting or putting yourself on your "to do" list? There are so many demands on our everyday life, we often lose sight of our most important relationships, our family. Family comes in all types of configurations, whether you are a single parent, a couple with no children, a couple of the same sex, married or not married, your family priorities are my priority as your therapist. I practice positive psychology techniques that allow us a deep understanding of your family values, and how to make changes in your family's behavioral patterns to reflect those values.

I work closely with families throughout my treatment to focus on understanding the family as a system and each member as having a unique role. Working together we can often uncover unmet needs and ways in which we can support one another towards our mutual goals. Further, by working with the family as a whole, we are able to acknowledge each of our role in the identified barrier and take ownership in our plan towards a solution.

I believe that families have written and unwritten rules that allow that family to function. And sometimes, there is a breakdown in how the family functions whether from a death in the family, a move, a member of the family not wanting to do her/his "job" or any other number of things. Meeting as a family can allow everyone to have a chance to speak and avoid some of the he said/she said that goes around. If you believe you and your family could benefit from some assistance and guidance, please call me at 714-432-9856.
