The only type of family therapy I provide is Maudsley Family-Based Treatment or FBT. This is a specific evidence-based treatment for adolescent eating disorders. I am one of only a few therapists in LA County certified in FBT. The treatment empowers parents to be part of the treatment team and requires their active participation. Treatment initially focuses on weight restoration and/or elimination of bingeing and purging behaviors, with the parents given the task of providing adequate nutrition for their adolescent during family meals.

We are a married couple in a blended family who understands the range of dynamics and challenges a family can face. We can help you deal with differences of opinions on finances, housing, children and in-laws. We understand the complexities of raising children and step-parenting. Are you having difficulty with boundaries, rules and discipline? Is one of you feeling like an outsider in your own family? We work on creating new roles and understanding baggage from families of origin. We encourage exploring fears around the lost fantasy of what a family "should" be. We can help you find new ways to form secure alliances and open communication.

Are you wondering what happened to my family? Where did I go wrong? How come we can't get along? Family therapy can be very helpful. I work with everyone in the family (mom, dad, kids, grandparents, and anyone living at home.) Using a systems approach, I teach communicate skills, look at patterns in the family, underlying issues that may cause your family to be stuck which will improve your relationships.

When one person in the family is plagued by a problem, it disrupts the whole system. Feeling disruptions in the family is difficult and may be the reason family therapy is the right choice for you. I believe that by providing family therapy, the family can learn to live more cohesively and talk to one another, not at each other. A good family therapist is one to help put the pieces back together after things have fallen apart. I listen to family members individually and as a whole to hear what the problem is from their perspective and treat it accordingly. Getting family therapy may be the best decision of your lives.

Whether your family is struggling to communicate, fighting to stay together, or figuring out how to manage the pressures of a blended family, life with a newborn or divorced co-parenting, therapy can help. Having a safe, supportive environment where you can express your feelings freely and without judgment, work on developing healthy, compassionate communication skills and establish new relationship patterns can support you in suturing a fruitful and fulfilling reconnection. One of the primary focuses of my work is helping families work together, thrive and flourish.

Family therapy is about communication and safety in the family system. Balanced family leadership requires the ability to be firm, and friendly, and to set developmentally appropriate limits while remaining fair, flexible, and encouraging. In balanced families, individuality and connection to the family are both significant. Family processes can be cooperative, consistent, and caring. My humanistic approach is in presenting with “realness” and joining the family in their discussions to understand the issues at hand. My goal is towards unmasking issues and creating new meanings for the family. Often the spontaneous reactions to the present situation in the therapy room create the client’s awareness of their inner potentials and opens the channels of...(view profile to read more)

Sometimes the issues that are causing problems in the home involved the entire family dynamic. In these cases, it's helpful for all or most of the family members to attend therapy sessions so that I can get a feel for how the family unit operates as a whole. Particularly when the primary problems center on parenting issues, having the entire family in one place to talk about feelings, behaviors, and expectations can be very effective in terms of reducing stress and increasing harmony in the home.

In many ways, I practice Family Therapy every day-even though I usually see only couples and individuals! The reason for this is because we all come from a family system, and our role and place in that system are revealed in every we relationship we have. The early attachment experiences we had as young ones set the stage for our intimate relationships later in life. It can be an illuminating experience to examine and understand the family system dynamics that you-and/or your spouse came from, thereby better understanding the context from which we came.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I have been trained to focus family therapy on the entire family system; every member has a role and makes contributions to the balance and satisfaction within a family. An important strength of families is that they allow us to support each other as we all adapt to growth and change, as well as face challenges from outside the family, Psychotherapy can help family members understand how change is challenging relationships, and it can facilitate adaptation to these challenges and changes. The goal is re-establishing caring, supportive, and stable relationships within the family.
