Over the last 50 years, the family structure has changed. People are waiting longer to marry and to have children. In 2000, US Census reported that 50% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce. About 26% of individuals find themselves in some sort of step role - stepparent, stepsibling or stepchild resulting in the blended family. Family therapy becomes the safe space where each person can communicate their perceptions and their needs. As the solution focused therapist, we become the vessel through which positive communication can be reached. Other goals in therapy are promotion of positive communication, friendship and healthy conflict resolution skills

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.

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.

Family Therapist

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

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Kendale Lakes

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.

Rosemary Barreras Reiss, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

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.
