It can be a confusing world, with families coming in many shapes and sizes. Learning how to be connected, have good relationships, and setting up an emotional and physical environment where everyone can thrive can be a big challenge. We focus on attachment; that is, nurturing a deep sense of connection and safety between family members. Connection takes being emotionally “there” for family members, and having time and activity together. Connection means feeling like “I belong, and I’m valued”. Safety can mean discussing a fair work-load balance, limit-setting on behavior, and knowing that we can count on each other.

In family therapy I meet with any number of family members together as a way to build understanding between family members and resolve conflicts that may exist. This tends to be a very active and dynamic interaction where each member is given the opportunity to express their views and concerns in a neutral environment. I, in turn provide feedback and help to clarify the issues.

Are you and your spouse at odds as to how raise children? Are there power struggles in the home; Children vs. Parents? Families are more than groups of people who share the same address and genes. Although conflicts occasionally arise, a family should be a source of Christian love and support. My objective is to counsel family members on how to strengthen the family with characteristics of a Christian home; love, joy, peace, patience...fruits of the Spirit. Counseling may include all family members, or just those able or willing to participate. Single parents are encouraged. I look forward to working with you, and applaud you for taking the first step towards a peaceful coexistence!

Free and open expression of thoughts and feelings is a hallmark of healthy family relationships. When members of a family feel safe to be themselves and express their thoughts and upsetting feelings, relationships flourish. Reactivity is common in family relationships. It simply says that your brain has activated your body's fight-flee-or-freeze system. A relational approach to healing family relationships focuses on forming quality connections in which each member feels they can express themselves and give from a place of love rather than fear, and non judgment allows each to grow in a supportive context.

Kathleen Hanagan, LCSW, TEP

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Whether it is mother/daughter conflict, father/son, struggles, or the whole family, the dynamics are often wrought with underlying emotions that need to be addressed. Rather than therapy for the child alone, often having the entire family meet takes the role of "identified patient" off anyone, and emotional knots can begin to loosen and be untied. I use role play, in addition to talk therapy, to engender greater empathy. When there are unhealthy "triangles," new structures are put in place so that clear communication can flow between members.

Carlos Durana, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Professional Counselor

The focus of my family therapy work is the family as a whole. Working on the relationship between family members is more effective than just treating the person that is supposed to be in need of treatment. From my perspective, family therapy work sees individuals in relationships to others. As a result, the attention shifts from the symptomatic individual and problem is seen as the family as a whole. The goal of my family therapy work is to help establish a “functional family” – one in which needs and the desired goals of closeness, identity, self-expression, and meaning are met.

Family Therapy may take many forms. Generally, the configurations I work with best are those involving 1-4 individuals. My aim is to facilitate better connections & ways of operating within the context of their family systems. [When situations involve younger children or larger groups, directly participating in family therapy, I refer them to colleagues whose training, experience and expertise are better suited to serve them.] When family systems are fractured or in states of angry, fearful or hurtful disconnect, the wounding & scar-tissue can be profound and can last for years or even generations. When the stakes are so high, for so many, can you afford not to try to promote healing?

Sometimes family members find it very difficult to communicate with each other. Adolescents may offer challenges that the family finds overwhelming. Parents may be sandwiched between grandparents and their children. One member of the family may have a mental illness that causes a lot of stress. There are many reasons why a family requests family therapy. This therapy may be short term. It can include all members of the family or some members of the family. I help the family develop skills they can use to improve relationships and move through stressful times.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this 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.

Licensed Therapist

I love it when I have the opportunity to work with multiple family members because I get a chance to see rather than hearing about interaction styles and that gives me a chance to help a family try something different. Many times we get stuck in how we interact with a particular family member - perhaps you feel that a parent still treats you like a child well into your adult years. Or perhaps you feel like an emotional teenager every time you get into a power struggle with your child. I help families figure out how to "grow up" in their communication and build cooperation so that family time can be enjoyable instead of stressful.
