Psychotherapist for Adults, Adolescents, Couples & Families

Every family member is affected by the behaviors of the other members. Although there may be an “identified patient” (the one with the biggest and most obvious problems), those behaviors are in some ways supported by the actions of others. I help each family member to understand his or her role within the family, to communicate in healthy ways, and to resolve problems so the family move can forward and remain connected. Conflict is a part of life, but when it is resolved successfully it can bring families closer rather than dividing them. As a parent, you will learn to function with an appropriate level of authority, while children learn to thrive within your family’s unique system.

Laurel Fay, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Riverdale Park

Did you know that not everyone who claims to practice family therapy was actually trained in family therapy? It's true. Only licensed marriage and family therapists are specifically trained to deal with the complex issues that can arise in families. Not surprising - you know your own family and how complicated it can be! It takes a therapist with experience and training to know how to balance the needs and wants of each family member, all while making sure everyone is heard and understood. Add to that the difficult tasks of helping the family as a whole achieve its goals for better communication and closer relationships, and it's clear it takes a professional to make lasting changes for you.

Dr. Beverly Wright, (M.Div., M.Th.)

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

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!

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.

Family Therapist

Laurie Friedman Donze, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Riverdale Park

When I work with adolescents or young adults living at home, I involve the parents in therapy, as well as other family members as needed. I will meet with one or both parents as part of the initial evaluation, to obtain a history of the client's life and difficulties, as well as a family history of psychiatric illness and substance abuse. Throughout treatment, I will meet again with the parents as needed, to discuss their concerns about their child and to offer practical suggestions to reduce conflict and help the client with his/her issues. If desired by the client, we may have one or more conjoint sessions with the child and one or both parents.

Family Therapist

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Through family counseling, you can understand family dynamics that have impacted all of your relationships. Our families-of-origin are the training ground for our life skills. Communication skills are one example and are learned in our families; they can be relearned in therapy. Through various therapeutic approaches and techniques, I will assist you in creating a more loving and harmonious family system.

Family Therapist

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Riverdale Park

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.

Family Therapist

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

Within driving distance of Riverdale Park

I approach families from a Family Systems and Structural Family perspectives, in that I view differentiation and adaptable yet present boundaries among family members and extended family members as a healthy family approach. I collaborate with the client family, including all members, to identify goals and process strengths and observed issues. I view the couple subsystem as the priority on the family hierarchy, the parent and/or caregiving subsystem as second, and child or sibling subsystem as third. I assess and evaluate internal, external, and multi-generational triangle, patterns, alignments, and rules which impact the client family.

Family Therapist

Kathleen Hanagan, LCSW, TEP

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Riverdale Park

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.
