Clients will be able to better understand the dynamics of their family and how their family system works, what sustains it, what makes it strong and what makes it weak. Counseling will help the clients gain the love, respect, and honor that draws them together as a family, so they can find the joy and fulfillment of being a family. Healing and restoring relationships is an outcome of the counseling process of Family Therapy, as each individual agrees to work on strengthening and protecting themselves and each other.

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 Clinical Social Worker

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.

Family Therapist

Gary Forrest, PhD, LMFT, SAP

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Opa locka

Although I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with a Doctorate in Marriage & Family Therapy, I do not work with children under 18. I do, however, work with families with adult children. Often, parents believe their lives are being disrupted when adult children move home or when they fail to achieve (whether or not they live together). Also, many adult children believe that their parents are overreaching, etc. My approach to every situation is systemic. I help each member of the family system to adopt new behaviors that are neither childlike nor parent-like. In this way, the family system and each member in it can learn to live in harmony, whether or not they live together.

Mari Casares, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Opa locka

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.

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

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 Opa locka

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.

Guy Jeanty, Ph.D., LMHC, LMFT, SAP

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Opa locka

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.
