Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Family therapy is most beneficial when the problems you are facing are relational. Do you constantly argue with your teenage son? Do you feel like your in-laws do not respect your boundaries? Are family alliances splitting your family? Are you burdened by caring for an elderly parent? Does every discussion end with a fight? In family therapy we can clarify the rules and the roles in the family, help you put and maintain healthy boundaries, redivide tasks and improve communication among family members. At the end of therapy, family members will walk away feeling heard and supported, knowing that the family is their safe haven, a place where they can be themselves and feel accepted and loved.

Family systems have a huge impact on our life. There has always been the argument between nature and nurture as to the cause of any emotional issues we face. The reality is there is some of both involved. It is usually the client who comes in for the counseling but a lot of the solution is found in the family system. Many influences and issues are passed through generations of a family. Therefore there are times when it is profitable to work with the entire family in counseling. Although we are not committed to solely a family systems approach to counseling we do recognize the need to address family issues that are often personified in the member with the perceived problem.

While it can be interesting to explore all the roots of family problems, it can also be painful. More important, it almost never helps families to function better. Instead of dredging up the past (which wastes lots of time and money and cannot be changed), I help families to build solutions that are effective and permanent -- even if they don't fully understand how the problems developed.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

As one who understands that our realities are suspended in evolving situations such as relationships known as the family system, the reverberations of what takes place here and now—between us—may be infinite (generation to generation). I am a co-collaborator with family members in a process of creating and transforming meaning from problem talk to exploring alternative possibilities. I work with individuals, families, and couples to better enhance family issues. I have several years of experience including multiple ways to approach problems.

Family Therapist

Susan Nestler, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

It is easy for family members to misinterpret each other’s signals for attachment and get caught in a negative cycle, where each one's behavior triggers insecurity and negative behaviors in the other. Using Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, I help family members understand how their emotions and behaviors are affecting their relationships with each other. When family members learn to communicate their deeper fears and needs, they are able to change negative patterns of interaction and achieve greater connection.

Family Therapist

Greg Douglas, LMHC, M.Ed.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of Palm Beach Shores

Much like couples, families often get stuck in negative patterns of interaction that prevent them from coming together and getting along. I help families to look at their behaviors and positions on issues that lead to the pattern staying intact. I then help the family to see that there are alternatives to relating to others and show that by changing the normal pattern the family is able to move in a more cohesive and positive direction.

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.

Gillian Bush, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Palm Beach Shores

It is impossible to not impact and be impacted by our family members. I see families as living and breathing organisms and often, a problem within the family (be it one member suffering with anxiety or depression or a communication or relationship problem) needs to be treated within the system itself. I can help you to communicate, listen and relate more openly with your family members to increase acceptance and positivity within the home.

Psychotherapist (Individual and Couple )

Whenever a member of a family struggles, the rest of the family is often greatly impacted. Family therapy is a modality where important family members come to counseling together to discuss the issues as a group. I have received specialized family therapy training at the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy in Manhattan and have been practicing family therapy for over thirty years.
