Throughout our lives, there are numerous life circumstances that can place a strain on relationships within our families. As a therapist, I serve as a support system and a guide to help families communicate and work together more effectively to overcome what challenges them the most. These challenges may include but are not limited to the following: family life transitions, such as empty nest, bringing baby home, getting a new job, job loss, and caregiver stress as well as parent-child difficulties, blended-family concerns, grieving loss of loved one, chronic illness, and separation and divorce. I am here to help your family

Family counseling includes the process of exploring the problems that initially brought the family to counseling. Therapist will explore the root cause of the problems, help families develop effective communication skills, complete modeling of desired behavior, role playing, problem solving and conflict resolution skills. Therapist will utilize various methods of Family Systems Theory to assist the family in the process of cohesion and restore the family unit.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

The family is the crucible from which we all emerge, for good and for bad. Family extends back generations, and we are influenced, one way or another, by everyone that came before us. We inherit genetic tendencies and traits, learn ways of acting, thinking, feeling and relating, and we grow our own unique self within a group of oddball people we call our family. We have a roll and function within this family, a roll that helps form our personality. Again, for good and for bad. Family therapy is about bringing into awareness the dynamic nature of the relationships in the family, and to make more conscious decisions about how to negotiate the multitude of issues.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mediator, Coach

I counsel couples, children and their families through their life journeys. There are many transitions a family goes through in their journey: Pre-marital couple; newly married; a family with a newborn or children of various ages; a family divorcing or remarrying; single parenthood; mental illness; career changes; empty-nesters; retirees; adult caregivers of their parents; grieving the loss of a loved one. Whichever stage you and your family are in, I am equipped to guide you through these life transitions to make the adjustment to them smooth and healthy.

Cindy McKee, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I have many parents that bring their child to me and in essence say "please fix my child". It usually involves the entire family working together to fix the problem that is showing, which is typically through the child. The child is really saying "please help me and my family" with their behavior. Family Systems Theory supports this belief and I have seen it work with people that are willing to make positive changes dozens and maybe even hundreds of times.

Family Therapist

Jeffree Gars, LCSW, DC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Norcross

I work with family counseling when my primary client is the adolescent / teen. In adolescent therapy family dynamics are often critical for an adolescent's issue to be fully addressed. Therapy with adolescents / teens are one of my practice specialties. Adolescence can be a difficult stage in life as they are going through their process of “individuation”. Adolescents face increased academic and social pressures just at a time when they are often less open to parental advice. Parents often struggle with dealing with these changes. For effective therapy it is paramount that the adolescent and the psychotherapist have a good rapport.

Therapy for Families is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Family Dynamics are a key focus at our practice.

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.

Dorice Neir, M.Ed., M.A., L.P.C.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.

Hope Hailey, LPC

licensed professional counselor

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.
