When one member of the family is using drugs, has defiant behavior, or a conduct disorder . . . the entire family spins out of control. My strategies help families end the chaos and find peace. When a crisis intervention is necessary I have the skills and the team to respond quickly. I am trained in many types of family therapy and use an integrative approach to resolving conflict.

Families have communication styles that may not equal collaborative communication. Using Family Systems Therapy theory research, I can help your family develop effective communication and still have family members retain their true person. Families have a way of caring for family members through positive attachment and you are shown how to attach positively as a family system.

Stress and conflict in families is common, despite the popular images of cohesive families, all living together in harmony. Whether one notices it or not, families operate as a system; each member has their roll and habitual way of interacting. My way of working with your family is to respectfully reveal and discuss these ways of interacting, while providing the tools for healthy ways of relating. A family can achieve a reasonable level of mutual respect and harmony.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), a treatment program for young children with behavioral difficulties (e.g., aggression, non-compliance, defiance, and temper tantrums) that focuses on promoting positive parent-child relationships and interactions and teaching parents effective child management skills. Parents who go through the PCIT program can expect to receive teaching and coaching sessions in two phases. The first phase focuses on Relationship Enhancement, or child directed interaction skill building. Parents are taught and coached how to use specific interaction strategies during short periods of play to reinforce positive behaviors.

There are many issues that can arise in a family setting that can affect the family dynamic and cause emotional issues for different members of the family. Children are at the highest risk to be affected by these family issues. One of the main problems that arises are attachment issues, either becoming too dependent on a parent, or not forming enough of an attachment with a parent. After a divorce you may decide to remarry. This is another major change for both you and your children. A therapist can be very effective at finding out what is troubling your child and help them deal with their emotions.

The dynamics of family are different than any other relationship we experience. Family members know us better than anyone. They know how to push our buttons, and they know our every weakness. Family members each need to share a common goal of respect (give and receive) and equally important is the ability to speak and be heard. Effective communication is lacking in struggling families and family counseling helps to restore the balance.

Family Therapist

Franklin Sollars, and Associates

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Utica

We work to nurture change and development of effective interaction between family members, as family relationships are a significant factor in psychological health. Our therapists believe that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an "individual" or "family" issue, involving families in solutions is often beneficial through direct participation in the therapy session. The family may be immediately related, or may include strongly supportive, long-term relationships between people who may or may not be related by blood or marriage.

Family Therapist

Thomas Blume, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Utica

As a family counselor I am committed to finding and supporting the voices of all family members, with special attention to the ways in which family members maintain rigid, fixed assumptions about each other. My Identity Renegotiation approach helps people to collaborate and eliminate behavioral and emotional problems created by new developmental phases, new relationships, stepfamily formation, new parenthood, disability, job loss, deaths, health crises, educational disruptions, and retirement.

How families interact with each other will greatly affect their success and happiness. I teach families how to interact in healthy ways through effective communication. Discipline is usually a major issue. Along with this, parents often need help to have their children be accountable and responsible for their words and behavior. Good parenting is an important issue in our society.

Family Therapist

Dorene Lilley, MA, LLP

Masters Level Psychologist

Within driving distance of Utica

I do my best to mediate, to help family members find their way back or heal the hurts of childhood or estrangements of adulthood. Prefer working with adult family members to restore relationships. Grown children still need the parents to fix the difficulties encountered growing up. I believe it is the adults' responsibility to maintain order in a family.

Family Therapist

Sally Palaian, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Our family relationships can bring us great fulfillment and happiness; sometimes family can also be a source of pain. Lack of communication and poor communication can lead to major misunderstandings between family members. Our family knows our strengths and shortcomings better than anyone else. Psychotherapy can help if you are experiencing conflict in your family, if members get stuck in certain roles or patterns of behavior with each other, or if you have estrangement between family members. By teaching communication skills, I can help you let go of longstanding issues and struggles and get back to positive loving relationships with each other.

Families respond very positively to an objective person who allows each participant to be heard. When we have more pieces of the puzzle all working together in my office, we begin to see the real shape of the problem, not just the picture the stronger members of the family project. Then we can work together on what is real and see everyone benefit from the counseling. I'd love to help your family!!!
