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.

Family counseling is one of my specialties. This includes infidelity recovery, trust issues as well as communication skills. My clients are able to enjoy positive results from consistent counseling with me. They report a higher level of satisfaction in their relationships after only a few sessions. You can experience this as well. Building trust and communication is essential and we can work together to achieve this.

Society trains us to think very individualistically, but many of our behaviors, thoughts, actions are reactions to the complex interactions of our lives, families, relationships. Family therapy is a way of viewing problems and solutions by evaluating the bigger picture of how all the parts involved create a symptom. Family therapy techniques and interventions are designed to alter the physics of relationships to bring about solutions changing our mental or behavioral thought process and resulting in desired outcomes. Family therapy is another model of therapy with varying techniques. Contrary to popular belief, family therapy does not need to be done with whole family participation.

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.

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.

Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period of time, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members (“Family Therapy”, 2014). The asumption in this type of therapy is that problems cannot be successfully addressed or solved without understanding the dynamics of the group. The way the family operates influences how the client’s problems formed and how they are encouraged or enabled by the other members of the family.

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.

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.

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.

Families who are out of balance or in crisis benefit from having a safe place to speak their truths and really be heard by one another. We will uncover dynamics and "family myths" as we look at the roles each family member plays in the family. I use thereputic techniques such as family sculpting and other experiential techniques to synthesize these dynamics so the family can be guided to make shifts in the dynamics. Families will learn how to set healthy boundaries and validate one another.

Most of the families I work with come to see me as a result of relationship distress and struggles within the family, or because of parenting issues and children or teenagers who are "acting out" (usually oppositional and defiant). I also specialize in helping families with young adult children (early 20's and older) who are still dependent on them and are often known as "failure to launch" young adults. I use a "systems" approach to help families with support, guideance and practical advice and tools.
