Families consist of the most important relationships in our lives. They can also be the most difficult. Learning how to communicate as children are growing up allows the kids to form healthier relationships as they grow up. We learned how to do "family" from our families...who did what they learned. Counseling helps to becomes more aware of the tools for healthy and connecting relationships.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I strongly believe that there is no one way to handle a problem. I work with my clients to highlight what works and use that knowledge to help improve what seems to not be working. I genuinely enjoy seeing the entire family in session since it provides rich information on how a family interacts and provides insight on the resources they have to tackle whatever problems come their way.

Families enter into therapy with a myraid of problems. It's important to understand the roles of each indivdual present in the family and create change by collectively creating family goals and family rules. Communication is also an integral part of family therapy and also is address in session. The goal is to get the family back to homostasis...stability. It is important to know that not all families are fully functional all the time. Therefore, I help families learn ways to get back to their "normal."

Licensed Psychotherapist

In family therapy I create a supportive environment where each family member feels comfortable expressing their views and communicating clearly what they need. As a family systems therapist, I also help family members to recognize that what they may identify as “the problem” is often a symptom of a pattern of behavior that has been set overtime. The benefits for your family will include eliminating accusations, blame and identifying effective solutions to communicate effectively. As a Certified Family Mediator I can also conduct court approved Family Mediation.

Clients benefit immediately from family therapy with me. This is because I am educated in family systems and how this works. Many clients are not aware that any behavior/attitude in one family member actually effects the entire family. All family members are interconnected, and this insight is very eye opening for people. Clients learn the extent of the effect their choices have on one another, and how choosing positive behaviors benefits the whole. Family members need to be aware that when one child's behavior improves, for instance, anothers' may become worse. This is to be expected. Knowing this can validate/support families in the healing process.

My training in systems theory, or how to look at what is happening between people, makes for more effective therapy. Instead of looking for what's wrong with a member of the family it involves looking at all of the relationships and dynamics in the family in order to improve things as a whole. When the problems involve children and teens I believe parents have the most power to change things. Determining what changes are important and most effective in repairing things in a family is what family therapy is all about.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, National Board Certified Hypnotherapist

Within driving distance of El Portal

Everyone in the family deserves to be heard, no matter the age or circumstance.When they don't feel anyone is listening, acting out, frustration, arguing, fighting, and misunderstandings occur. I received my Masters' degree in Family Therapy and have been trained for over 15 years by some of the top innovators in the field. My training was concentrated on learning to help shift the family from being stuck to possibility, ease, and fulfillment. Family counseling doesn't have to be a painful airing of all the problems that have occurred. It can be fun and playful.

Board Certified Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach

When families learn to identify and modify maladaptive patterns of relating as they are guided into challenging inflexible roles assigned or adopted by its members, the system that the family is begins to move towards a healthier and more functional unit. Moreover, becuase, often times the person identified as the problem, is nothing but the expression of the symptoms of the family which may include ineffective distribution of power and responsibility, addressing structural issues can also contribute to transform families and turn them into safer and and more balanced.

Family Therapist

Mary Weatherford, Ph,D., MBA, Ed.S., CRC, BCN

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of El Portal

Dr. Weatherford may suggest family therapy to help the identified patient resolve his/her issues. The family unit is like a well balanced mobile. If one object on the mobile changes (or gets better) other members of the family may need to make changes or adjustments. The positive change in the family member may disrupt the balance of the family unit. Short courses of family therapy can well restore the homeostasis of the family unit and allow it to be more receptive to the changes in the identified patient.

Families engage in unhealthy and ineffective ways of relating that can continue for years leaving all parties feeling burdened and strung out. Gaps and distances are created to manage difficult emotions and you may need a guide to help you rebuild a broken relationship. I help families address dysfunctional patterns that interfere with the closeness they would like to obtain. I help members identify patterns used to protect and distance themselves. I assist family members in engaging in a manner that recognizes the emotional needs of the family, and foster empathy for one another's position in family conflicts.
